I promise you that one of these days, I'll blog about making pizza dough from scratch. But, until then, I'll use my favorite grocer Trader Joe's readymade refrigirated pizza dough. Here are two packets placed side by side - yeah I'm making 2 pizzas.
This is the first pizza. This is not round like a typical pizza - this happened to be this shape because my daughter was standing next to me and pulling the dough on one side as I was trying to make it round - so I gave it and we created a fun pizza shape.
Before adding sauce or toppings, I semi bake the base for 5 mins exactly. This will ensure that the base stays crisp and does not become soggy because of the sauce.
Now, take out the semi baked pizza base. Add some sauce and spread it around. I did not make pizza sauce but used pasta marinara sauce instead - a good substitute. Do not add a lot of sauce and as will again make it too soggy.
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese around.
Add your favorite toppings - for this one, I added Pineapple, Jalapenos, Black Olives and Red peppers.
Here's my second pizza and my personal favorite - Brocolli, onions, olives, red peppers and pineapples.
Bake them at 350F until the cheese on top starts to turn golden.
I've topped off the second pizza with cheese - ready to go for its sauna bath..waiting on the other guy to get out!
And finally, Ladies and Gentleman, Here it is. Our hero of the day!
Does that look delicious or does that look delicious?
I was trying to make a few pieces, but the edges are already missing - happens with a few hungry people in the house.
And there's our plate - Soup, Salad and Pizza! All of this done within an hour. So worth everything!
Enjoy! Peace Out!
