In a perfect world, we would be making sauce from the sweet, juicy tomatoes in our garden…
But its winter in New Jersey and tomatoes are less than thrilling.
In a perfect world, we would be using fresh mozzarella…
But its a Tuesday night, I worked all day, and I was lucky there was a block of mozz in the freezer.
:) Sometimes you have to indulge.
In a perfect world, I would be chopping fresh basil…
But did I mention it’s winter in NJ, and I worked all day?
Dried herbs will work just fine.
Tonight I made homemade pizza, and even though its not my “perfect world” pizza, there is still something amazing about homemade pizza. Toppings are usually chosen depending on what needs to be used up from the fridge (the best combos!) The best part is that you only need to follow instructions for the crust…there are no rules for how you put your pizza together!
10 minutes of prep time (or less) and about 14 minutes of baking…and dinner is done.
I foraged through the fridge and found half a bag of pepperoni, half a tub of mushrooms, a green pepper, red onion, and cherry tomatoes. Perfect toppings for two pizzas:
Im completely satisfied, and have an extra slice for my lunch tomorrow.
Do you guys ever make homemade pizza? What are your favorite toppings?
