pizza!

20Feb12

It’s easy. It’s yummy. First you make the dough. I’ve been following this recipe. Pretty easy! I used to think making pizza dough was incredibly long and boring as a process and so I would rely on the premade pizza dough in a lot of stores. But dude it takes like 15 minutes at tops to mix some stuff together, and then as you wait for it to rise you can just start cutting up your veggies and preheating your oven. It really only adds maybe 20 minutes more to your whole pizza making process and you save a fair amount of dough (hahaha pun intended, I meant $). For real mixing some flour, yeast, water, sugar, salt, and oil in a bowl is not rocket science.

Then you cut up stuff. Here in no particular order are some of my favorite toppings for pizzas.

PLANTS: Garlic, Onions, Broccoli, Sun-dried Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Olives, Artichoke Hearts, Kale, Spinach, Eggplant, Zuchinni, ANYTHING.

SAUCE: Tomato Sauce, Pesto Sauce, No Sauce!

CHEESE: FRESH Mozzarella, Manchego, Parmesan, Ricotta, ANYTHING. Those who want a vegan cheese option, I recommend daiya! It definitely works.

Really I’m sort of a fan of anything on a pizza crust. Once during a failed attempt to make chana masala (I used diced tomatoes that had basil and oregano in it…) I put it on a pizza…. GENIUS.

Then I put corn meal on a cookie sheet, spread out the dough as much as Ican (I’m pretty bad at this bit, but you know it really works no matter how ugly your pizza shape.) and put those topics on!

20 min in the oven and you’re good to go!
