Pizza Thursday Report for July 8th, 2010

Hi gang!  Pizza was fantastic yesterday! That is after I remade my crust.

:rant:

As soon as I made the first batch I knew something was wrong with it.  It was hard like a brick and pulled apart way too easily.  I used whole wheat and was afraid I over mixed it and the wheat sort of seized up.  Which wheat will totally to do you!  It takes a loving gentle hand and sometimes I need to smack stuff around, can you dig it?

I let it do its thing but when it was time to start considering dinner, it was not going to happen with that crust.  Thankfully pizza crust is really easy to throw together and I made up another batch.  We distracted ourselves with some Lego Star Wars while the dough rose.  This dough turned out much better and work out well!

  • Whole Wheat crust
  • Pizza sauce
  • Shredded moz
  • Spinach
  • Chopped artichoke hearts
  • Red onion
  • Crumbled chicken spinach and feta sausage (from Whole Foods)
  • Sundried tomatoes
  • Crumbled Feta

Perfection!  This is probably my favorite combo by far!  I love the chewy sweetness of the sundried tomatoes paired with the salty bites of the feta.  The chicken sausage is one of Whole Foods best that they make.

Artichokes bring a nice tartness to the pizza while the red onions keep things a bit spicy sweet.

I had two lovely pieces!  They were large so I was plenty content.

I don’t know why people give pizza such a bad wrap.  It doesn’t have to be a “junk” food.  It can be completely healthy and a great way to get in some veggies.

We had some white wine to drink and kicked it on the couch with some TV.  Very lovely evening indeed!

  1. YUMMM looks amazing A!!! Are there olives on there or no? That’s good to know about the chicken sausage- I always get soo overwhelmed at WF b/c they have so many flavors! Bravo for making your own crust! I haven’t braved that chapter of cooking yet :)

  2. That pizza looks fantastic. I was just saying I needed a new combo of pizza toppings. I’m totally trying this one soon! Also, glad to know I’m not the only one who’s had issues with whole wheat crusts.
