I love making pizza! I also love that Matt worked at Papa John’s for 3.5 years, so he’s a pro at rolling out the dough. We get whole wheat dough balls from Earth Elements. They are yummy and convenient. I’ve tried making my own, but it didn’t turn out so well. If you have a good recipe for whole wheat pizza dough, please share! I need to learn how to make tomato paste so that I can have a 100% Oklahoma pizza. That will be a goal for next summer.
Our most recent pizza was amazing. I added some fresh thyme and sage and a little cream to the pizza sauce. We used mushroom slices, copious amount of goat cheese, and left-over caramelized red onions. The garlic-flavored goat cheese was freakin’ awesome, I might add. However, maybe we went a little bit overboard, or maybe it’s just that we’re not used to goat cheese, but our tummies hurt the next morning. On second thought, maybe it was too much red wine? Oh, well. I suppose it was worth it, because it’s the second-best pizza we’ve ever made. No. 1 had sausage, goat cheese, mozzarella, and pickled jalapenos and mushrooms. A flavor explosion!
Matt’s favorite pizza toppings are hamburger, mushroom, and pineapple, though we’ve never had a homemade version. My favorite toppings are caramelized onions, tomatoes, and goat cheese. Something wonderful happens to the tomato slices when they are baked on a pizza. What are your favorite toppings? And what are some good pizzerias in Oklahoma? The best pizza I’ve ever had was at my beloved Tomato in Denton, Texas. But, it’s closed (much sadness) now, so I need to find a surrogate.
