Ahhh, pizza!

So, if there’s one thing I love to do when I cook, is find a way to make things more complicated, more expensive and longer to make!  However, I have found one exception- pizzas!  I make this recipe for pizza dough from (of course) epicurious, and although it does take longer, due to the rising time, there is something so cathartic about smashing your fists into warm, sticky dough.  Then, you can throw it up, and sing the “That’s Amore” song.  It’s a pretty winning combination!  🙂


Some of Matt and I’s favorite toppings are caramelized onions, mushroom and roasted garlic, Italian meat lovers, and prosciutto & arugula.

The recipe makes three large pizzas, and it freezes very well.  I’d recommend rolling the dough out as thin as possible, and using a pizza stone, such as this one below-( it makes the crust so crispy) before adding toppings on. A crisp Italian white wine or Negroni cocktails are our favorite drinks with.

    Pizzas are a staple of mine, although perhaps not as much as nachos/”baked salad”. Now that I have my own pizza pan and bread ingredients, I may just make some! Thanks for the recipe!
