Mmmm Pizza {In the Kitchen}

Sharing is caring!

A few years ago my husband and I were on a homemade pizza kick after our trip to Italy and made it everyweek for a month or so.  I bought pre-packaged dough and hated it.  I bought those pre-made “pizza rounds” and they were okay but weren’t the taste we were going for.  I made home-made dough but found the process long and tedious and the results seemed to vary like the wind. The recipe was quite complicated so there were a lot of places you could go wrong.  Eventually we gave up and went back the the pizza joint pizza instead of making our own.

Now, I absolutly love Tommy’s Pizza our favorite pizza place which happens quite possibly to be the best pizza in America!  (Sorry Josh but until I try Sam’s I have to go with Tommy’s!)   I love Tommy and his family and the atmosphere is really neat but everytime I shell out 16 or 17 bucks for a pizza (with the amount of stuff they give you this really is a bargain!) I think, I could be doing this at home!

As I mentioned a few posts back, I really enjoyed the book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver.  After reading the book I have really changed my thoughts on food. I have a much deeper appreciation for farmers and for the concept of eating Local Food.  Even before reading this book I was trying to buy more products that were made locally but more out of fun than support for the local farmers.  Lately however I have become acutely aware and sometimes astonished about where my food comes from.

So that brings us back to the pizza. I happened onto a farmers market today that had some fresh locally grown organic grape tomatoes. I also picked up some goat cheese. I decided when I came home I was gonna make some pizza.  In the book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle there was a super simple recipe for pizza crust that I thought I would try.  Here is the recipe .  I made two pizzas.  I put tomato sauce and mozzerella on one for my husband.  For the other pizza I roasted the grape tomatoes and some garlic.  I also made carmalized onions and topped it all with the crumbled goat cheese.  It was sooooooo yummy!  Here is a picture if my pizza.
