Homemade Pizza February 28, 2008

I have been on a mission to start cooking from scratch using whole and organic ingredients.  I have a child with food allergies, so my mission is doubly important.  I have found that I enjoy cooking when it involves more than opening a box and adding water. 

To start my journey, I decided to pick from the dinners that we are use to eating and learn how to make them from scratch.  I decided to start with pizza first.  It took a few recipes and some practice to finally master it.  I am completely satisfied with the final results.  I even had a pizza party that involved the making of seven pizzas!  The pizza proved to be a huge hit, which is not usually an easy accomplishment with my usual food critics, those being my family.

I found the pizza dough recipe on Food Blogga.  I am excited to give more of her recipes a try.  I have not mastered a pizza sauce from scratch as of yet, so for now I am using Contandina brand pizza sauce.  We layer whatever toppings we are in the mood for, along with a pile of mozzerella cheese, and voila!  A great tasting pizza!

I have asked for permission from the author of Food Blogga to list the recipe on this site, but until I get a response you will have to go through this link to get the recipe.  The entry happens to be a recipe for a particular kind of pizza, but the blog entry starts out with the recipe for basic pizza dough. 

I urge you to give it a try!  I think you will be pleasantly surprised about the ease in which it takes to make it and how wonderful it tastes.
