Yesterday I went to the farmer’s market instead of work. I wasn’t planning on it, but everything I got went well together on one thing: pizza. I make my own dough, which is a giant pain in the ass and I don’t recommend it if you can buy some from anywhere else (except Boboli, which is a travesty to the good name of Pizza). Here’s a recipe that’s similar to the one I use. I also use this dough to make garlic knots–make the dough into blobs and sprinkle with garlic powder and salt. Bake.
Things I bought at the farmer’s market and used as toppings:
- Green chiles
- Heirloom tomatoes
- Green onions
- Some creamy type of Wisconsin cheese (can’t remember the name)
I made two slightly small pizzas, and neither of them really turned out very round…trying to make a round pizza is my least favorite part of making pizza, super frustrating. First, I roasted one of the green chiles on the stove and peeled and diced it.
I like my pizza with minimal sauce, so I used just a tiny amount of pasta sauce as a base. I layered the basil all around like pepperoni, cut big slices of Wisco cheese and layered them around, layered sliced tomatoes on the top, sprinkled the roasted green chiles and green onions around, then covered the whole thing with more shredded cheese from CostCo. Pop in a 450 degree oven for about ten minutes, and you’re done. Super easy (minus the making-round part) and tasty.
