Saturday Pizza Night




Saturday night is often pizza night at our red house.

I make a double quantity of a simple pizza dough and roll it out to fit two large rectangular trays.

Usually I make a vegetarian pizza and one with some kind of meat, such as bacon or ham.

Last night the vegetarian pizza was topped with caramelised onion and garlic; tomatoes, grilled squash, silverbeet and basil from the garden; and some pre-cooked slices of potato.  The other pizza had bacon, ham, caramelised onion and tomato.


If I don't have mozzarella cheese on hand I grate a little of whatever cheese I have.  Last night I used colby.  Then it was into a very hot oven for 12-15 minutes.

The advantage of home-made pizza is that it is cheap and you can control the quality of toppings and the amount of cheese used, leading to a healthier meal.  And home-made pizza tastes really good.

We make our own pizzas too. My family don't like bought pizza. One of the kids like onion, garlic and potato pizza and everyone else likes bacon and pineapple.
