My fiancée and I made pizza Friday night, which is something we used to do, but haven't lately because we've been out of town so much. It's a fun activity we can do together, and the final product is always amazing. Right now I'm using Jiffy pizza crust that just needs hot water. I'm going to experiment with a yeast crust from scratch once I have more time. We are also using canned sauce for convenience, but I plan on canning a homemade pizza sauce this summer when my tomatoes are growing. I will post recipes for both the crust and the sauce once I have them perfected. Our pizza toppings were: fresh mozzarella, pepperoni, green and black olives, red pepper, red onion, and tomato. I also made a Stromboli-type pizza roll with the same fillings. The roll tasted great, but looked awful, so no pictures of that.
I finally feel like i'm getting things together enough to cook exciting dishes, so I plan on posting more frequently.
