There is literally nothing yummier than homemade pizza.
Finn loves to have pizza about once a week but I want to make sure it's as healthy as we can possibly make it. In an upcoming post - I'll walk through a cauliflower crust pizza but this time we made a traditional yeast dough pizza and it was amazing. It is just consistently good and requires less effort than you'd think.
This evening - we made a white pizza with Mozzarella, for Finn. For the non-Finn members of the house; I made a white pizza with caramelized onions, Mozzarella, French Goat Cheese, Pesto and pine nuts.
I brushed the uncooked dough with olive oil & sprinkled a bit of dried basil, added our toppings, then cooked them in a 450 degree oven for about 10 mins. You have to watch your pizza as the thickness of the dough will drive how long you cook them. Start checking around 8-9 minutes.
Notes: I used AP Flour for our crust and it was light / fluffy and had an amazing chewy texture.
If possible, use a stand mixer with a dough hook. I used a hand held one as I couldn't find my dough hook - still turned out perfect but typically I wouldn't use a hand mixer.
