Tonight I made pizza for dinner. But this wasn't my usual pizza. This pizza was entirely homemade! (Well, except for the cheese.) I started earlier this afternoon by making Homemade Pizza Dough and Homemade Pizza Sauce.
Next I went out back into our garden and picked some Home-Grown Vegetables. I chopped them up to use as Toppings. We're growing Basil, Eggplant, Tomatoes, and Zucchini. (We also have green bell peppers, but there weren't any to pick today.)
So I took my Homemade Pizza Dough, Homemade Tomato Sauce, some mozzerella and parmesan cheese, my Home-Grown Vegetable Toppings, and layered them to make one fabulous Homemade Pizza. I baked. Then we ate. (I was thinking, If I got a cow, then I could make my own cheese. And have really fresh milk. However, I'm not really okay with killing and eating the cow in the end. I guess I'll stick to store-bought cheese and milk for now.)
Yumm! So I won't lie, the pizza dough was not quite as good as what I would normally buy from the store. However, my pizza dough was made today and I know exactly what went into it. The pizza dough I would normally buy at the store would sit there for days after traveling probably halfway across the country.
Happy cooking! And happy crafting!
