A couple weeks ago we had Pizza Night and made three pizzas, to eat for dinner and freeze for lunches in the upcoming week.
We're big fans of the dough Trader Joe's makes, that you can roll out yourself. They have regular, herb garlic and wheat to choose from. Before I found their dough, though, I used Acme or Semifreddi's bread (ciabatta or rustic italian style) sliced in half and open faced.
TJ's also has a variety of options for sauces, from the fresh tub of sauce, to a jar of 'pizza sauce', to canned marinara sauce. We usually go for the jar or can for economy.
The mozzarella usually comes from TJ's or Country Cheese in Berkeley. I also throw on whatever cheese I happen to have lying around (usually monterey jack). Pick your favorite flavors, as cheese is just as important as the other toppings.
My new favorite topping are peaches. I had them on pizza for the first time at Cheeseboard last month, and it was life-changing.
Toppings for a Peachy Pizza
fresh peaches sliced thin
leftover grilled chicken, sliced
fresh sliced tomatoes
Other Favorite Pizza Toppings
fresh corn kernels
sliced bell pepper
Once your pizza is assembled, cook according to directions, or until crust is crispy and cheese is melted. Remember, anything in your fridge is a good candidate for pizza. I like to think of pizza more as 'garbage pie', so don't be afraid to use your leftovers!
