It's been one of those
On to the food:
I've been on a pizza kick lately. Ok, I'll be honest, I'm always on a pizza kick. I don't know if I have ever not wanted pizza. (Actually, there was some time while I was pregnant that I didn't crave pizza.) We've had pizza at least 3 times this week. I think I'm even starting to get tired of it (did I just say that?). At least it's all been homemade, so it's a little healthier than the take-out version.
Ever since I got my amazing KitchenAid Mixer, I love to make pizza because it is so easy and I don't have to knead it (the mixer does that for me).
I think the crust is essential to a good pizza. I love hot, take-out pizza (come on, who doesn't?) and for the longest time, still much preferred that to my homemade version. There was just something about the crust, sauce, etc, of my homemade version that didn't quite seem like authentic pizza to me.
However, I've completely changed my tune. I love homemade pizza and prefer it over delivery since you can perfectly customize it, and it's way easier on my stomach. This crust is perfect and chewy just like it should be. The sauce tastes aaamazing (again, a good sauce recipe is a must on a homemade pizza), and the toppings are delicious and healthy.
Don't let the list of ingredients and instructions scare you away, it's really easier than it looks. (Plus you can always take a shortcut and buy pizza sauce and pizza dough - in the deli section in my grocery store - if you are running low on energy!)
