Mmmm! Homemade pizza. Fresh cheese, fresh sauce, fresh toppings. So good.
I knew I wanted to make pizza this week and even contemplated MAKING MY OWN DOUGH.
I then thought about it and realized, eh---I’d rather buy dough. I don’t have time to knead stuff and watch it rise.
I went to a local pizzeria by my house to purchase their homemade dough. They were kind of confused and didn’t know what to charge me, so we settled on $5.00.
It was funny.
I could have gotten regular freezer dough from the supermarket—but I thought my method would be more fun.
Anyways, I bought the dough, made the sauce, got some toppings, and went to work.
Being as obsessed with cheese as I am, I had to make a stuffed crust pizza.It was a must.
This involved placing a circular ring of mozzarella string cheese around the entire pizza and then folding the crust over it. Yea, boi.
I topped the pie with fresh mozzarella, basil, pepperoni, and then sprinkled it with a blend of parmesan, romano, and asiago cheeses.
|This crust is STUFFED with cheese.|
15 minutes later the pizza was cooked to perfection. Really tasty!
I cooked it in a pizza pan, but next time I make a pizza I’m going to get a pizza stone so I could lay it directly in the oven. I think it would give it a crispier crust next time around?
I like crispy crusts.
And cheese. :)
|The pizza tasted incredibly fresh.|

**I didn't use a recipe for the pizza--I just threw the toppings that I wanted on and baked at 500 degrees F for 15 minutes, or until the crust is brown and crisp and the cheese is bubbling.
