Jay and I started a new ritual, homemade pizza Sunday! We’ve tried all kind of concoctions, and even bought our own basil plant…which I am very surprised I haven’t killed yet. I’ve tried a few dough recipes, this one from Epicurious is my fave so far, but I’m still tweaking. It makes one – not too thin or thick – 14” ish pizza. Our first pizza ever was a store bought pizza dough from Sunflower. We topped it with pre-sliced fresh mozzarella, shredded salami, and Arrabiata sauce.
The next week we made our own dough with a mix of white bread four & wheat flour. I feel like I over kneaded it? It was a little crackery. But the toppings were perfect! I used Fresh Mozz, more arrabiata sauce and basil.
The third one I made was the same dough as the white/wheat batch, but I didn’t over knead. It was a much better crust. I made half with Pancetta and half with grape tomatoes and basil. Both were super tasty!
The pizza I just made this week was with an all bread flour recipe. It was topped with shredded Mozz, tomato basil sauce, pancetta, and fresh basil. The crust came out perfectly! But the shredded cheese was not as good as fresh Mozzarella.
How often do you eat pizza?
