We try very hard to have at least one meatless day per week. We also tend to make pizzas on that meatless day as it corresponds to the only day of the week where I am home early enough to effectively rise some super kick ass dough. We each make our own concocted creation which makes for perfect pizzas each.
This week I made the following:
- A layer of pesto and light olive oil with sauteed onions and mushrooms with chopped fresh jalapenos & cabbage and sweet basil
- A little fresh mozz (which I will be finally making soon) and some grated parm and chopped green onion
- Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper – bake @ 400* for 15 or so minutes
Viola – the best little rustically handmade pizza you can get (at home). Something like this in a swanky restaurant would run you around $20 or possibly more. At home? Maybe $3. We use cheap ingredients on hand and have lunch covered for the next day too. Perfection.
