Made homemade pizza for dinner Tuesday night. We made four different kinds--fresh tomato/mozzarella/basil; mushroom; pesto/mozzarella, and gorgonzola/sundried tomato/arugula.

Larry the Dough Boy rolls out a crust.

We have a somewhat odd method which works well in our lousy oven. We roll out the dough, let it rest a bit, and then brush with oil and bake at 450 for 5-7 minutes to just get the crust started. We prick the bubbles that develop. Then we put on the toppings and finish the baking. This way we get a nice crisp crust without burning the toppings, especially good if you're using a fresh, noncommercial mozzerella.

That does look yummy!!


Homemade pizza is my favorite. I have also been known to cheat and use the frozen dough for a quickie:-)

Amy could you post your recipe for your salad?... I have asparagus I need to use this weekend.
Thanks bunches~ bugalu


Those look really, really good, should not be reading before lunch - I like the shape, too.


Amy, that looks fantastic!

These look absolutely delicious!


Amy, these look really good! I have been making pizza using the recipe that Candi posted. Makes for a great,quick meal. I am going to try your toppings.

O YUM! I'm partial to the Pizza Margherita but all you toppings look delicious!

Oh, AMY that pizza looks so yummy. I had this visceral reaction to the pictures. Flashbacks to sidewalk cafes in Naples. My stomach is now growling.

Amy, that looks so delicious. I love the crust, and would eat that before the filling. Especially homemade...hmmmm, maybe for tomorrow night? ;-)
