Homemade pizza at it's best, cheats part 2

Every now and again I indulge myself and make a fabulous pizza with extra topping and lots and lots of cheese. Usually my brother can smell it's in the oven because he has an almost uncanny way of showing up just in time to help us devour it...

I always cheat! I have never made my own pizza dough. The products to be found at the supermarket are so good that the need to knead never has appeared.

I usually don't make pizza with marinara sauce since it makes all pizzas taste more or less the same. In stead I brush the dough with a flavored olive oil, lemon is usually the one I end up using, then I go crazy with the toppings before I add plenty of fresh mozzarella cheese.

Some of my best pizzas has come about when I didn't plan to make any.
  • Salami, pear, onion
  • Pickled peppers, ham, olives, arugula
  • Blue cheese, ham
  • Pesto, parma ham
  • Horseradish, smoked reindeer
  • Prawns, ginger, sweet chili sauce
  • Mango chutney, chicken
  • Mushroom, garlic, parsley
  • Tomatoes, basil, pine nuts, parmesan
  • Feta cheese, onions, salami

I could go on and on, but my point is, use what ever tasty things you have at home.

Pizza is always delicious!
