I bought pizza dough weeks back and thought at some point we'll have cravings for pizza and it'll be fun to create our own. Last night was the night.
I'll make the real pizza dough from scratch next time but for now, these ready ones were so much fun.
My Only Tip: HAVE SO MUCH FUN
Artichoke (canned), base cut off and discarded
Buy ready made pizza sauce as base.
It'll probably tastes so much better if everything is fresh, but when you're in a hurry, this strategy will be your lifeline... I think this is perfect for simple gathering with friends or just pizza night with the family.
I lost track of the time. All I know is we had soooo much fun
Bring your frozen pizza dough to room temperature before adding toppings. You want all the ingredients to be on even temperature to have better results.
To create your own pizza, spread as little or as much pizza sauce on the pie. This will be the base of your pizza.
Start adding toppings, again, as little or as many as you please.
We found out the following are yum-my!
Hawaiian - pizza sauce + mozzarella cheese + pineapple tidbits + ham
Meditteranean - pizza sauce + artichoke + sauteed mushroom + feta cheese + olives + baby spinach on top
Pepperoni - pizza sauce + mozzarella cheese + pepperoni
Usual - pizza sauce + mozzarella cheese + olives + ham + mushroom
More to add:
Ground beef, bell peppers, chicken left overs if any, smoked salmon, rocca leaves, capers, and so so many more choices to choose from!
Go to your nearest supermarket and start stocking for some ready pizza dough and pizza sauce. The rest will be up to what's in your fridge!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake your pizza for 15-20 minutes and voila! Your instant pizza is ready to eat!
Serve your pizza with your simple salad with balsamic vinaigrette dressing (I've added this to my list of recipes)
