(On the Left and bottom right) Taylor’s Pizza:
Goat cheese on half, Cottage Cheese on half
Then on half the goat cheese side and half the Cott. Cheese side
he added summer sausage meat cut up,
and on the other halves of each he added cooked ground beef.
Then Carmelized Onions and after the pizza came out of the oven Spinach
My Pizza (top right)
I melted cream cheese as a white sauce on the hot dough that had been in for a bit.
Then on one half I added avocado, spinach and shredded cheddar
on the other half I added a mix of carmelized onions and mushrooms and atop that shredded Citrus Lime Parmesan Cheese. (Later this was voted best, but they were all so darn fantastic I’m glad we were sharing.)
Inspiration: Today the Great Alaska Pizza Company had a $5 medium pizza for Customer Appreciation day. Taylor waited 15 minutes in line, but when they said it would be another 15, he decided life was too short and headed home. A week ago we got a big bag of Bread flour and a container of yeast, so I guess today is the day, we start making pizzas. My brother is a great pizza maker and sent me his secret crust recipe, but I was working and Taylor was chef of the night so he found a recipe online that would be ready in 30mins. Ok, game on.
He called me down when it was time to stretch out my very own pizza crust. I was pretty excited, it stirred up memories of make your own pizza nights from birthday slumber parties of my youth. He used the round glass pie pan for his and I went with the Mirro baking pan cover. Because we had no corn meal for the underside of the crust we just improvised with quinoa… but probably in the future will use nothing, it seemed fine without it. Then I let gravity do the work stretching out my dough, I just turned and turned it, then laid it out and extended a bit further on the pan.
