On Saturday, we cooked homemade pizzas with my family.
The dough is from Whole Foods and costs about $4 a bag — but it’s much more worth it than Trader Joe’s 99c dough.
If you like what you see above…Here are some cooking tips:
- - Start by streching or placing your fist under the dough to give it shape
- - When placing it in the circular tray, make sure the tray has a little flour or oil so the pizza comes out easily when cooked.
- - Set the oven at 325F
- - After placing the dough onto the tray and folding the sides, place it (without any ingredients) in the oven for a couple of minutes.
- - When the dough is a little more stiff but still undercooked, start preparing your pizza!
For the first pizza, we used tomato sauce, baby mozarella cheese balls, tomatoes, basil and arugula. TIP: place the arugula until the pizza is OUT of the oven and before you serve.
The Proscuitto Pizza, has a cheesy crust, which is made by streching the sides of the dough, placing mozarella, and rolling them on top to make a crust. After heating it in the oven for a couple of minutes, take it out and add the tomato sauce, mozarella cheese and mushrooms. The proscuitto is added until the pizza is out of the oven.
A white pizza is one without sauce. The third pizza is made with ricotta cheese, chopped garlic, a little bit of olive oil and dehydrated tomatoes. Add the spinach or arugula until the pizza is out of the oven, and place some spoons of ricotta cheese around it before serving.
