Pizza Party!

Recently, well, within the last year, I’ve finally figured out how to make homemade pizza. It wasn’t that hard, really, but apparently for years I was doing one thing wrong; the baking process. I’ve always baked pizza at 350 for 20-30 minutes to cook it. Well I didn’t realize that a key step was to bake it at full power for a short period of time. Anyway, here are the results.

2011-09-27 (2)The usual pizza we make has a basic basil/tomato sauce with two types of spicy salami, onion, mushroom and pizza cheese. It goes together in about 5 minutes and it baked in another 5. So very very easy!

2011-09-27 (3)See how good it is? I couldn’t even get a photo of the pizza without half of it being gone! The key to baking it is the pizza stone, and to prepare the dough and toppings on a hot stone (quickly) and then baking it again. It’s really fun and seems to always be a hit with guests.

Dang, now I want some pizza.
