I’ve been known for my pizza. Seriously, we rarely ever go out for pizza. If we do it’s either:
-at the theater and we’re really more there to see the movie
-we get Casey’s (gas station) pizza for convenience
I learned early on to make pizza. I think it was actually one of the first foods that we quit going out of eat to have as we felt I made it as good as the restaurants. The funny thing is, it’s even better now than it was back then…and we all thought it was good then.
Kramer LOVED deep dish pizza…the deeper the better. Me, I’ve grown to liking a medium crust that is still soft so, the last time I made pizza, I made a medium crust….Then I tried to mimic the pizza we last had at the theater….a “Big Kahuna”.
I made my crust then added pizza sauce…not a lot. We don’t like really saucy pizza. Then I added a complete layer of shaved ham. Then bacon pieces…then pineapple.
The cheese for the top was this….
After that I put a really thin layer of shredded mozzarella.
After that one was done…I made a cheeseburger pizza. This one was BBQ sauce on the bottom, then hamburger and bacon, then chopped pickles, then the same cheese and mozzarella.
So how did we like them????WONDERFUL. Kalissa now is swooning over the “Big Kahuna” pineapple pizza. The one in the picture is the cheeseburger pizza though.
I was sitting closer to the “Big Kahuna” pineapple pizza but oh my. The cheeseburger pizza was my favorite.
Karl with the peace sign is actually voting for both. He liked them both a lot.
In fact, we liked the pizza so much that I made them again the next day for lunch. The childcare kiddos loved them too. The “Big Kahuna” was their favorite.
On of my all time favorite thing to do is to try to replicate food we eat in restaurants. It’s fun but it does spoil going out to eat. So often I end up figuring something out and making it comparable to what was at the restaurant….then it’s no long such a treat to go out and order it.
A few tips I can give on the pizza front:
-Use cooking spray to grease the pan. Spray it right on the pizza dough too. I helps “move” and spread the dough out.
-Set the oven temperature to 425 degrees. It sounds high but it’s perfect.
-Keep trying and trying. Practicing is worth the end result.
Anyone have any other pizza flavors that are traditional? I’d love to try some different combos.
