Our pizza turned out so good yesterday! Definitely the best homemade pizzas we’ve made yet.
I used the same dough recipe I normally use (subbing in 3 cups of whole wheat flour) but it was the cheese the made the difference this time.
Since our food processor attachment broke months ago (and I’m usually too lazy to hand grate cheese), we typically use pre-shredded cheese on our pizzas.
I had a block of cheddar and mozzarella that we grated yesterday to use on the pizzas, and the cheese actually bubbled and browned and made our pizza look like a real pizza.
Homemade pizzas always taste good, but the pre-shredded cheese just melted and never browned like it should.
I really wish I had taken pictures of the whole pies when they came out of the oven. Nick and I were so proud!
We made one pepperoni + red onion and one bbq chicken pizza.
And thankfully, we had some ready for leftover lunch today ;)
Along with some spinach/romaine/carrot/red onion/goat cheese salads, it was the perfect lunch today.
I’m glad we went out and hiked yesterday afternoon, because the weather is just nasty today! It’s only in the 40s and is gray and raining.
But…that makes it a perfect afternoon for laundry, baking, and napping – which is what I’m doing next ;)
What’s your favorite pizza topping?
