For the longest time I’ve been wanting to make home made pizza. I’m not talking about grabbing a premade/shaped crust, and adding toppings (pizza dough in a can doesn’t count either).
I’m referencing one of those times where you make the dough yourself, everything is made start to finish (well except cheese, I don’t know how to do that yet).
We made our first pizza a few days ago, and I have to tell you I’m in love.
Normally I have a hard time eating delivery pizza. The grease really doesn’t sit well with my stomach and usually the toppings just aren’t up to par with what I’m craving. You also then have the whole topping issue. It really is rare to get people to agree what to have on a pizza (other than cheese).
This cheese was wonderful and didn’t upset my stomach at all! My half had bell pepper, grape tomatoes, and mushroom. My husband went for pepperoni. I really enjoyed my veggie side more than the pepperoni (less greasy) but it really had great flavor.
I do have to admit to making one mistake. I got the recipe from AllRecipes and I didn’t read far enough into the comments to realize that it made 2 medium size pizzas or one REALLY BIG pizza. From the picture you can tell what I did. That sucker took over my pizza stone and expanded over the sides! Next time I would definitely make it into 2 pizzas and make them thinner. This pizza was a beast!
The leftovers really weren’t as good as the first day, but I still liked it.
Note to self… Read before doing… ha!
