The best pizza I've ever had!
I mentioned my Love recently made the "best pizza I've ever had"...well he was able to recreate it again on our anniversary! Oh my goodness, SO delicious! Have you ever made homemade pizza? We make it every Saturday night as a treat and it's always something we look forward to on the weekends! We call it our "farmer's market pizza" because we use whatever veggies the organic seller has that morning. Growing up, we made alot of homemade pizzas too, which was so much fun. My Mom would make little individual ones for each of us to then add whatever toppings we wanted. It was something she very often did for parties and sleepovers, which made it all the more special. I look forward to the day in the future when Lovebug can enjoy "Pizza Night" with us too and taste her daddy's delicious ones!
Anyway, I had some requests for more info on this incredible pizza and I was able to get some bits from my Love. He doesn't write his creations down, which makes it difficult. :) First off, he or I always make the homemade whole wheat crust using either whole wheat pastry, stoneground wheat, or a mixture of the two, in which we add some Italian seasoning. As far as the toppings, my Love has been roasting bell peppers, tomatoes, and zucchini in EVOO, salt, and some Italian seasoning. The sauce he has been making includes garlic, balsamic, and again, that Italian seasoning. He then layers the sauce and roasted veggies on the pizza and adds a ton of spinach and basil. We've also been adding some nutritional yeast on there too which we love. SO, there you go! That's the gist of most delicious pizza I've ever had! :)
SO, what do you put on your homemade pizzas? Alright, be back soon from the beach...
