One of my goals for pizza month was to try out different kinds of crust. For some people, this would mean making different kinds of dough. I am not those people. I looked for different things I could buy. For this pizza thing to make it into the regular repertoire at our house, it has got to be easy. Making your own dough is not easy. No thank you.
First up, pita pizza (well, technically Italian herb pocket thins). I sliced my pita in half so it would have a thinner crust. Jamie kept his whole.
We used pizza sauce from a jar, pepperoni, Italian sausage, black olives, mozzarella and cheddar. It was quick, easy, the crust worked out well. Week night dinner winner.
Next up, Boboli pizza crust. Oddly, this was really challenging to find at my grocery store (and by that I mean, I could not for the life of me find it), but Target did not disappoint. Target also had a much larger selection of pizza sauces. I guess they don’t call it the $50 store for nothing.
Again, not fancy. Turkey pepperoni, Italian sausage, Classico pizza sauce (much better than the other one), and mozzarella. We used the thin crust Boboli and I liked it. The whole wheat one is hanging out in the freezer for another day.
Finally, I used actual dough. The local Sentry sells pizza dough from a local bakery. I was preparing for Hurling (and you’ll learn more about that in another post) and ended up with some extra crusts.
Pesto, pizza sauce, fresh mozzarella, roasted red pepper (that I roasted on the grill without any instructions, thank you very much) and shredded mozzarella.
Pizza crust goal: achieved.
