Anyway, last week we had all these fantastic local ingredients and we thought the best way to make excellent use of them was to make pizza! We had:
Delicious homemade, local beef sausage which I sauteed and drained
Locally made mozzarella cheese, shredded
Local tomatoes (not mine, yet, but I got these at the farmer's market) and my basil. Tomatoes thickly slice and basil julienned
Homemade pizza dough, defrosted
And homemade pizza sauce.
Here are all the ingredients, prepped and ready to go!
First, preheat the oven to 450F with the pizza stone on the bottom rack of the oven. Preheat the stone for at least one hour.
I rolled out the pizza dough, topped it with a little sauce and the cooked sausage.
Topped that with the tomatoes and basil
Smothered the entire pizza in freshly grated mozzarella AND Parmigianno Regianno
Then popped the whole thing into the oven and onto the hot stone for about 17 minutes and Voila...we had pizza!! Incredibly delicious...who needs take out?! :)
