Day 7th of May

So I blogged a few days ago about making pizza crust with yeast.  I finally cooked it up yesterday, and hoo boy!

best. damn. pizza. ever.

I am so in love with this pizza. I don't think I'll be able to eat frozen ones again.  maybe not even delivery pizza! (though I probably will due to convenience factor.)

The crust was chewy...yet crunchy at the same time.  Cheese was perfectly melted..and the garlic went so well with the eggplant.

It was actually super easy, but a little time-consuming (well..compared to throwing a frozen pizza in the oven) Its best to make the crust dough in advance (I made mine 2 days prior), it needs time to rise and settle.

Changes I made (does anyone ever cook recipes exactly?):  I only made half the crust recipe (it makes two crusts anyways.  plus, I didn't have enough flour for the whole thing)  and instead of tomatoes, I used red peppers, and also added mushrooms.  I didn't have any fresh mozzarella, but I used the prepackaged stuff...whatever the difference is, I really don't know.  also, the broiler on my oven doesn't really work, so I don't know how it tastes if the eggplant and etc. is broiled rather than baked a little. also, I may have gone a little overboard on the olive watch out.

Just delicious.  If you must have pizza, eat this one!!

I'm off to eat the leftovers for lunch now..

Dinner tonight: who the heck knows.  probably leftovers.
