|Emma and Jake’s pizzas. Em had shaved brussel sprouts on hers and she said it was
A week or so ago I received my Bon Appetit magazine in the mail. The cover photo struck my fancy right off the bat. It was a picture of a rustic homemade pizza that looked yummy! The caption of the front said something to the effect of, “Make amazing homemade pizza at home with a crust that will know your socks off!” It didn’t say the whole “knock your socks off” but you get the general idea. The article started on pg. 64, and I couldn’t wait to get there. I ripped a few other recipes out of the mag before I got to the pizza recipe, but once I started reading about the pizza, who cared what else was in the magazine.
I usually find at least one gem of a recipe in almost all of my cookbooks or magazines, but this pizza dough recipe is worth 20 years of subscriptions! It’s good! It’s delish! It made me the happiest girl or boy in town!
The recipe was written by the same guy who created my favorite bread recipe. (You’ve got to try the bread recipe too if you haven’t yet. ) The recipe was so simple I wondered if it would be as good as professed. Yep! You’ll be having pizza night this weekend with your fam, or all your brothers and their wives, or your favorite neighbors. And they will all go home thinking that they have never eaten something so delicious. I’m still dreaming about my pizza. I’m dreaming of James’ pizza too. He made two for himself. He can do that, and still keep his girlish figure. Lucky man! (Actually lucky me!!)
Get creative with the toppings. Of course we always have the old pepperoni and cheese standby stuff, but we pulled out some interesting stuff this time. The pizza I was imagining had a little sweet and a salad on top. It was the best darn thing I think I’ve ever eaten! I chose to top my pizza pretty simply.
