so i think i'm going to start making homemade pizza dough on the weekend
& then making pizza twice throughout the week. beacause (1) it's quick & easy,
(2) there are so many possible variations, and (3) it's freaking pizza.
this is what i did last week. made the dough on saturday, following this
pioneer woman recipe, which makes enough for two pizzas
(for those of you who have never made dough, don't be intimidated.
it really is quite simple, not to mention cheap.) then we had pizza on tuesday & friday.
the pioneer woman had said that the dough's better after it's set for 3+ days,
and i found her to be correct.
one of my favorite toppings for pizza is prosciutto. however, as it is a little pricey,
i only get it every once in awhile. it pairs quite nicely with some fresh basil & olives
(as long as you like saltiness).
i brushed the dough with olive oil & sprinkled it with a bit of salt, added the toppings, starting with fresh mozzarella & crumbled feta, then baked the pizza at 500 degrees for about 13 minutes. just enough for the cheese to totally melt & the crust to turn a golden brown. i then added some fresh arugula on top for some extra crunch & freshness.
even though i just ate dinner, i'm getting hungry again looking at these photos. i'm excited to try a plethora of topping combos this summer.
what are your favorite pizza toppings?
