I heart homemade pizza...

One of my all time favorite foods is pizza.  I could eat it every day.  Seriously.  One week, I think Stephen and I had pizza four times.  It was amazing.

But when it looks like this:


And when it's made at home?  Why not eat it every day?

Starts with an amazing home made dough:


Some rockin ingredients (this pizza was made to be like the one we ate twice on our honeymoon)


And don't forget your basil!  I love finally having a basil plant.  Love.


I love this pizza.

Yes mom, those are olives.  That was Stephen's side.



Have a great Saturday!  Do something fun ;)  Or make a pizza.

Dough ingredients:
3 cups of flour
1-1/3 cups of warm water
1 pkg quick rising yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 sugar
1-1/2 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Proof the yeast with warm water, add to dry ingredients, mix until all combined and a smooth ball of dough.  Place in a large bowl (pre-greased) place the dough ball.  Make sure to cover the dough on all sides with with the oil so it doesn't form a skin).  Let dough rise for 45 minutes in a warm place, punch down and then let it rise again for 45 minutes)

Dough makes enough for 4 medium pizzas.  Roll out, and top with your favorite toppings!  Bake at 450.

I love homemade pizza! Remember when we would go over and make Papa Teel's famous pizza recipe? Maybe that's where we get the love of making it with others.

Lately I have been throwing mine on the grill to get the grill marks on the pizza and it makes the crust bubble up which is fun. You should try it! Love you like I love a good home grilled pizza.
