pizza, it's what's for dinner!

Oh yes. PIZZA~!! I love making it. I have made the dough before, but lately I've been into these two I can buy from the local Co-op. They carry Big River wheat and white and Bread Stop wheat dough. I only buy the wheat. I have tried both and I think they are the same, except Bread stop is a dollar cheaper and smaller...so take your pick.

Since it has been cooling down at night, I am not avoiding my oven like the plague we now get pizza! I made this first pizza three nights ago. Here is what I did:

I used the Bread Stop dough. used pesto for the sauce. loaded on the mozzarella and parmesan cheese. sprinkled it with a tablespoon of minced garlic. tossed on some capers. backed the thing. cut up tons of tomatoes (since they are coming out our ears right now in the garden) ...I used earlies and green zebra (so excited to use the green zebra!!). put those on after the pizza came out so that they would not be soggy, but fresh. oh, if I could just give you a slice you'd be convinced. yum.

here is pizza numero dos. glory.

again Bread Stop wheat dough. pesto for sauce. motz and parmesan cheeses. put in oven. in a bread tin chop up produce I used squash, because that is what we had that needed to be used, but the more colour you add the better. this is a throwback to when I worked at cirello's pizza here in corvallis. it is known there as a roaster. they put red onion, squash, zucchini, into a "roaster" or bread pan. so that is what I did. I then added minced garlic and olive oil. put it in with the pizza. take them both out and throw the veggies on, and then I added tomatoes (again, we have to use them up!!!). oh sweetness. this was good.

haven't canned any. we have been eating all that we have so far. I will can some though, probably some at the ranch, since they always have buckets extra.

Btw, I used to work for Cirello's pizza back in 1989 when I was about 19!
