Here we go! It was another long day with the three amigo’s so on the menu last night was homemade pizza with any toppings I could find in the fridge. I managed to track down Trader Joe’s crust, Mozzarella cheese, spinach, onions, leftover teriyaki chicken from the previous night’s dinner and blue cheese. The tomato sauce was used to make some quick pizza sauce.
For the pizza sauce I mixed together one clove of garlic, one tsp basil, one tsp oregano and a can of tomato sauce. Nothing fancy, but for a quick week night pizza, it does the job. And speaking of garlic and basil, if you haven’t discovered Dorat (the red and white containers shown below) you need too! They are frozen versions of some of the more common spices such as fresh basil, cilantro, and garlic. One cube equals either a teaspoon or if you’re using garlic, one clove.
Anyway, back to the pie. After chopping, dicing, mixing, and dough flattening, the pizza is assembled.
And into the oven we go at 450 degrees. It usually takes about 7-9 minutes, but I had a small distraction up in the boys bathtub while it was cooking (don’t ask) so it went a couple minutes longer than I had planned. No harm no foul – it was a bit darker than I had hoped but still delish. The final product. 🙂
