My husband is a pretty typical dude in that he loves pizza. I like it too, but he claims he could eat it for every meal and never grow tired of it. We used to get Papa Murphy's quite frequently, and although quite delicious and affordable, it was not helping my waist line. To be fair, they do have a decent selection of DeLite pizzas with thin crusts and healthy ingredients.
I wanted to start making my own pizzas but wasn't quite ready to delve into dough making so I picked up some dough from Trader Joe's in the refrigerated section. They have 3 varieties and its verrry reasonably priced.
We usually make our standard BBQ chicken pizza (chicken breast, Famous Dave's Sweet and Zesty, green onions, and red onions), but have experimented with Thai Chicken (modeled after Old Chicago's version), supreme, veggie, and andouille sausage. Last Friday we had some leftover veggies, mozzarella and basil, and some spicy ground sausage from Super Target. I wasn't really in the mood for the sausage, so we compromised and made our own halves of the pizza. Mine was margherita style with fresh mozzarella and basil. Well, it didn't end up in halves so much as you can see....
I told Mr.Beesknees to make his as big as he wanted and then I would add mine. I ended up with about 1/4 of the pizza but that was totally fine with me. It was the perfect amount! I paired some delicious beers with this pizza that I would recommend for your own pizza making adventures. Michelob's Shock Top Belgian Ale and of course, one of my faves New Belgium's Fat Tire.
