Homemade pizza is the best pizza and I will quite literally fight anyone who thinks otherwise. Don’t get me wrong, delivery, restaurant, and even frozen pizza have their place but there is absolutely nothing better than pizza you’ve made yourself. Nothing.
I like to use Trader Joe’s pizza dough because I’m short on time these days – working full-time, going to school full-time, running this blog and trying to have some sort of social life. TJ’s is great because they have three different kinds of ready-made pizza dough, you can go the classic plain dough route, or choose between whole wheat and a herb dough. They’re all great, so you really can’t make a wrong choice.
This is kind of a “what do we have in the fridge that we need to use” pizza. I like these kinds of pizzas or dishes because you can be really fun and creative with them, and the more obscure or different the ingredients are, the more creative you can be. This is maybe not my most creative pizza ever, but it is damn delicious and that’s what counts!
We’ve got Trader Joe’s chicken sausage (have I mentioned how much I love Trader Joe’s?), mushrooms, red onion and CHEESE. We’ve had some whole30 discussions at work over the last couple of weeks and there’s a basic consensus that cheese would be hard to live without. It’s pretty much it’s own, very important food group.
I could probably eat this pizza pretty frequently. It’s easy, tastes great and has a perfectly baked crust. Just typing about it now makes me wish I could have a bite. Or a slice.
