Pizza Satisfaction

This week we finally got some decent pizza!  I decided to put the deep dish style on the back burner for now, I couldn’t risk another pizza fail.

I could not wait for pizza this week because it wasn’t going to be anything fancy and it was finally going to have sausage on it.  Whooo!

Simple pizzas are my favorite!

The only thing I did differently was the sauce.  I mixed spinach and sundried tomato with a can of fire roasted crushed tomatos.  First I let the crushed tomatoes drain to get rid of the excess water.

The I put that in the food processor along with spinach, sundried tomatoes, garlic and gave it a whirl

The result was a really flavorful and thick sauce for the pizza.

Toppings were:

  • Shredded Mozzarella
  • Hot Italian Sausage
  • Shredded Carrot
  • Red Onion

I got pre-shredded mozzarella from Whole Foods and it was amazing!  Normally I buy the blocks of cheese from there and shred it myself.  Last trip they were out of blocks and we needed cheese for pizza so I bought the preshredded.  It has so much more gooey and stringy characteristics, I loved it!  The block mozzarella does not, I’ll probably purchase that again.

We finished up the hockey game while enjoying our pizza.  There’s even enough leftovers for us to have for dinner today.  Hooray!

Rocky Update:  He took his last antibiotic today and he has recovered from his surgery.  He can even be left home alone.  Ahhhh, we can all go back to our normal routines now!

I’m very much looking forward to this weekend.  We have house stuff planned along with a quick trip to the butcher to stock up on some goods.  What’s on your agenda for the weekend?
