After being inspired by various bloggers and friends, I decided to make homemade pizza. And by homemade, I mean, from scratch. Well, I got through it almost all the way homemade. I totally want to make my own sauce, but 1) I had half of a jar of pizza sauce in the fridge already, and 2) I've decided that making it ALL at one time is a bit too much for me. I know my motivational limits. I'm going to try out this recipe to pre-make batches of pizza sauce soon (maybe tomorrow!), so next time I'll have it ready to go.
I used this recipe (thanks Emily!) for the crust, and I received two others that I'm planning on trying out. It worked out well, but next time I think I'll add some herbs to the dough.
I picked up a block of mozarella cheese at the store today and shredded it myself. I sliced up a tomato we had from our recent trip to the Eastern Shore. I pulled some leaves off the basil plant I picked up at Trader Joe's this week. And made a tomato and basil pizza. From scratch (almost)! Get this, it not only didn't suck, it was really good!!!
