Pizza is a firm favourite in our household. It has been for many years. In our early days when Hubby and myself first lived together and we were going through the ‘right of passage’ stage of being stone cold broke each month, homemade pizza was our luxury dinner. Admittedly I could have made it with cheaper toppings but why not have the pizza you want to have? It is pizza after all!
One of the things I insisted on perfecting was my own pizza dough. After 8 years of making this I think I now I have it down to an art. Unfortunately I am no good at hand stretched bases but we can’t be good at everything.
For my pizza base I used an enriched pizza dough which means it contains eggs. There are plenty of other recipes available that don’t use egg but I have never actually tried them as this has always worked so well.[amd-zlrecipe-recipe:12]
I use Buffalo mozzarella on my pizzas. It is a little more expensive but I find the tasty and creamy texture of it so worth it. We also have green peppers and various deli meats including pepperoni and Palma ham. Once the pizza is out of the oven I add a few leaves of basil.
