My boyfriend makes pizza. Lots of it. And it is delicious. There is a local pizzeria that will reluctantly sell balls of dough for $1. Reluctantly as in, you call and "it's cool buddy we sell dough balls" and you go in and they are like "what are you talking about, why would you want a raw ball of dough?"
The best part is the cheese mix he makes. He combines mozzarella, fontina and pecorino. I like to pick at it before it makes it to the actual pies.
Tonights toppings were:
Pizza #1 - olive oil & garlic base, prosciutto, spinach and fresh heirloom tomatoes.
Pizza #2 - olive oil base, italian sausage, red onion, green pepper and kalmatas.
Making pizza at home is actually really simple. The trick is to get a pizza stone for baking in your home oven. I actually leave mine in all the time to help distribute the heat evenly for all my baking.
