We have really enjoyed making pizza lately. There is something so relaxing about making homemade pizza, drinking wine, and watching a movie (or catching up on one-hour dramas) on a lazy Saturday evening. Last weekend we went to Las Vegas for our anniversary, so it’s especially nice to have some down time this weekend!
I use the Pioneer Woman’s pizza crust recipe, because it rises really well for me. Once you have your dough of choice, preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Roll out your dough to be very thin, then brush with olive oil and place on a baking tray (or pizza stone). Use a very light hand with your toppings so that the dough can crisp up without being weighed down. Bake for 10-13 minutes. Enjoy!
Here are some of the variations we’ve tried:
Calabrese, mushroom, and red onion:
Roasted eggplant, cherry tomato, and mozzarella, from the Pioneer Woman:
Calabrese, pineapple, and jalapeno:
