I always seem to miss out when the"What's for dinner tonight?" thread is going around.
Tonight, because there is nothing in the house to eat that trips my trigger, I am going to make my own "Hail Mary Pizza" I called it that because I just throw it together, and asked the higher powers to make the wife like it. The only mission specific ingredient was the pizza crust mix. I put some italian spices in the dry mix before I added the water. Used Bar-B-Q sauce, it was all I had. on top of this was chopped ham and summer sausage, covered with matzarelli cheese. Smells good cooking, her words. I will have to get back to you as to whether is some higher diety up there watching out for me.
This may seem strange but if you like flakier crusts, mix some vodka into the water you are using to raise the yeast if you make from scratch. Also add sour cream to the dough. It gives it a nicer taste.
for last minute pizza I use pita bread for the crust
When I was in Italy I brought home a lady that became my wife... Home made pizza is a regular thing here and it is very much appreciated!
I do plan on making an outdoor wood fired pizza oven next summer
