As a family we have been making many different homemade pizzas almost every Friday for the past several months. Pizza with frozen or homemade bread dough. Pizza that is grilled or baked. Thin crust, thick crust, light toppings, many toppings, homemade sauce and boughten sauce. We're still trying to find that perfect combination.
We got very close to this the other night when my husband's mom was here with her husband. It was so good! It was a deep dish with italian sausage, red onions, a bit of feta cheese, banana peppers and mozz cheese. Oh yes and sauce of course. You will find the recipe he used for the dough here. He made this pizza chicago style. His mother even said that it was pointless to go out and purchase pizza here on out. I agreed.
Fast forward to this evening. We had gotten a coupon from pizza hut that said you could get any size pizza, any toppings for only $10! That seemed like a pretty good deal - especially since Allysha had a book-it coupon to boot. I anxiously awaited the pizza - we haven't ordered out pizza for quite a long time.
I took my first bite and was sorely dissapointed. It was so greasy! I had forgotten how greasy their pizza was. It wasn't cooked right either. I was so very dissapointed.
So, needless to say, we will not be purchasing take-out pizza anytime soon. I'll have my amazing hubby make it;)
It would be fun to get a few new toys for pizza making. The main item, a pizza peel. I think hubby would love that! Have you ever used a pizza peel? If so, how do you like it?
