It’s Not Delivery…

It’s homemade.

Last weekend I made a pizza so delicious that I surprised myself! We were just about to walk out the door to eat at the pizza place down the street when I offered to just make a pizza at home. I still can’t stop thinking about it. I’ve made lots and lots of pizzas at home before, but this one beats them all. And Matt agrees.

I had everything on hand since I had just run to Trader Joe‘s a few days earlier. 



Trader Joe‘s Ready-to-Bake Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Trader Joe‘s Pizza Sauce

Frozen Broccoli Florets

Baby Portobello Mushrooms

Roma Tomato, diced

Fresh Basil

Trader Joe’s Goat Cheese Crumbles

Mozzarella Cheese

Olive Oil

Minced Garlic  


Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare dough as directed. Saute garlic in a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet. Add garlic to dough. Spread pizza sauce onto dough and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Layer as much of your your favorite toppings as you like! Top with crumbled goat cheese and fresh basil. Bake for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Halfway into the cook time, brush crust with olive oil and return pizza to the oven. Broil for a few minutes until cheese is lightly browned.

Looks like there will be many pizza nights in our future!

    I love putting fresh tomatoes on a pizza, so rustic and authentic tasting (except my hubby puts them on whole, and boy they get so hot! It's like biting into lava!).
