This post is really about homemade pizza dough, leaving the garnishing to your own personal taste. Although the recipe below is for one large pizza, I have to admit I made a few the other night. My all time favourite pizza is rolled flat and placed onto a round pizza pan, garnished with sauce and grated mozzarella cheese, followed by whatever I'm in the mood for (onions, peppers, olives, ham, etc).
The other night, I started experimenting by making different pizzas. I filled the crust of one pizza with grated mozzarella cheese which was good, but I think it would have been better had I used a cheese sticks instead. I also didn't use sauce on this pizza. Instead, I basted olive oil over the dough and used cooked diced tomatoes along with other garnishes as shown below.
When it comes to pizza, you can do whatever you want as long as you have a good base and that starts with the dough recipe.
I also am so thrilled to have received the illuminating award from two awesome bloggers; Andrea at Glam Hungry Mom and Keyona at Skinny and Delicious. I follow these two blogs loyally and recommend you check them out. Keyona also nominated me for the Lovely Blog Award, for more detail please see here.
In accepting this award, I must tell you one random fact about myself and that is that I am quite spiritual and strongly believe in keeping a burning candle in my home that is kept in my kitchen. For this reason, I am pleased to add a burning candle to my blog :)
I thinks it's so touching that someone would light a candle for me. This is something we do in good faith and for this reason, I would like to illuminate a candle for 5 bloggers too.
