I never order pizza because I don’t like the taste of cardboard and grease and I dislike having to pay ridiculous prices for said cardboard and grease even more. When I make pizza I’m guaranteed that the crust won’t be too thick, too thin, bland or have any trace of sogginess. The toppings are whatever I want them to be and I’m not charged extra for seafood. It’s always hot and fresh whenever I make it and I don’t have to tip the oven for delivery.
I particularly enjoy my homemade pizza ever since I got a pizza pan that has holes in the bottom. It lets the air circulate nicely and produces a nice crisp crust every time, (the bbq will also achieve this, but some days you want to be inside). Like with most things, I hardly ever make the same pizza twice, there’s always something different. This time I used Giada’s pizza dough and covered it with a white sauce made out of garlic, white wine, freshly grated parmesan, milk, and cornstarch. Then I topped it with sliced scallops, marinated artichoke hearts, caramelized onions, homemade bacon, fried wild mushrooms and a sprinkling of parmesan. When was the last time you had take out like that?
