#5, 6, 7: Party Pizza Recipe 2/6/10

We decided to have some friends over for pizza and other snacks. The next three pizzas were made for that night.

#5 Margherita Pizza

I figured I should make the old stand-by, marinara and cheese. It turned out to be a hit.

#6 Meat Lovers Pizza

This is a pizza I have made for Andrew and I before so I knew it would be great. I used poultry Italian sausage, turkey pepperoni, sautéed onions, marinara and mozzarella cheese. I was right, it was great.

#7 Cheese-less Roasted Veggie Pizza

One of our friends is lactose intolerant, I can’t even imagine because I love cheese so much. I have seen him eat cheese before but I wanted to check with him to see what he could eat. He said melted cheese was the worst, I pity him so much because I love melted cheese the best! I was kind of excited for the challenge of a cheese-less pizza, I have never attempted it before due to my cheese addiction. I roasted red peppers, something I learned to do earlier in the week. I also roasted some onions and sautéed zucchini. I brushed Wegmans basting oil with garlic and herbs on the crust and added the veggies. This pizza turned out to taste great and our lactose intolerant friend was grateful and satisfied with my creation. I was disappointed that the veggies did not stay on the pizza after I sliced it and they fell off when you tried to eat it. The challenge is how do you get the veggies to stay on the pizza without cheese? I will attempt that challenge again sometime.


#4: Meatball Pizza Recipe 1/30/10

Meatball pizza was one of the pizzas I used to make when I lived by myself using my mom’s pizza dough and vegetarian meatballs. This time I used my own pizza dough, store bought turkey meatballs, and sautéed red onion. And of course, marinara and mozzarella cheese. This pizza was fabulous; we fought over the leftovers! The only thing I might change next time would be to make my own meatballs. Although, I tried that once years ago and it didn’t turn out too great. But, I’m a better cook now and I’m willing to give it a try again. I will surely come back to this pizza recipe.
