A Night of Homemade Pizza

By the time I got home from work last night it was too late to cook a big dinner, so I decided to make a pizza. This post is nothing more than the details of my homemade pizza. Fortunately I had lots of fresh veggies in the fridge, so the hardest part was deciding what to use. I started with some chicken that was already cooked, so I cut it up and used it as a base for my pizza.

above left: fresh mushrooms and sliced yellow peppers & above right: sliced tomatoes

above left: there is nothing like fresh basil & above right: then the fresh grated cheese!

above: It's finally done...the cheese was all bubbly. The basil smelled so delicious, I could hardly wait to slice it up. It turned out to be a pretty good dinner after all. Anyone else like to make homemade pizza? What do you like to put on yours?

I've tried making pizza maybe two-three times at most - from scratch but it sure never sounded or looked as appealing as this one of yours does! How'd you do the crust to get it so perfect? The toppings just sounded so good it was like they were tripping little aroma triggers in my mind to where I felt almost like I could smell the savory flavors blending! That was naughty of you cause now, you made me hungry.

I curse you, Savant! I LOVE pizza. I live across block from best pizza in Seattle. Thin whole wheat crust, moz cheese, mushrooms...Oscar night fare. White wine. German beer for my German friend. I swore off pizza, 50 and all...now your photos...

It looks awesome! Can I come over for dinner next time?

I should make more stuff at home like pizza, and bread. I think you've inspired me Rick.

Homemade pizzas are the best! We like to make whole wheat crust in the bread machine and then top it with peanut sauce, shredded carrots, chicken, bamboo shoots, cilantro, green onion and various other items we might have and make a Thai pizza that is to die for!

Yours looks marvelous, Rick!

Seamus said...

OK! Now I'm starving!!!!!!!!!! ;)

Jimmi said...

WOW, very nice!

Where did you get the crust? Was it pre-made?

Kerry and Rachel said...

Love homemade pizza! Yours looks great. I like chicken, mushroom and jalapenos on mine. Or spinach, artichoke and feta. Or basil, fresh tomato and fresh mozzerella.
Mmmm, the possibilities are endless.

I make homemade pizza semi-regularly as it is a kid favorite and homemade fills them up better than a store bought frozen one ever could.

I keep it pretty simple though, pepperoni, cheese, canadian bacon. Too many picky eaters around here, but your basil looks lovely!

Homemade pizza is my fave meal. Has to have chillies!

Biddie said...

Oh, I LOVE homemade pizza! Mine never look as good as yours, though :(

I will also add that when I looked at this post the next day I was already craving pizza again. I could eat it every night!

Seraphine said...

Your pizza looks awesome. Cheese and basic sounds great. If you want to share mushrooms too, I'll be right over!

Olivia said...

Mushroom, garlic, jalapeno, and italian sausage. *drool*

Or, when feeling refined I love a no-tomato bufala mozzarella and pumpkin flower pizza! *swoon*

I love to make pizza with the kids. They love it when they put their own toppings on it. Before I do it, I clean the floors really well, get the pets out of the house and set everything out. Lots falls on the floor and you can't logic with a two year old on why she can't eat pepperoni that fell on to the floor while keeping a four year old from hogging all the cheese who also wants to write his name on his pizza with the sauce!

The kids don't get favorite kinds until they are at least 15-- before that they are having to try it all.

I like a thin crust with chicken, artichokes hearts and garlic with a white sauce!

Oh yummy, Rick!!

I love veggies on pizza. My guybestfriend and I disagree on this whole heartedly, but I am all about the veggies. I can almost smell it baking!!
