Delicious recipes for the curious cook!
I live in a pizza house, meaning there’s a deep love for this food under our roof and it usually makes it into our weekend meal rotation at least twice a month. While Chicago certainly has limitless options, we also enjoy a homemade pie every now and then.
I was raised in a home where pizza was on the menu every Friday night and when I was young, my father often made it from scratch. I loved helping him with the process- rolling out the dough, spreading the sauce, sprinkling the toppings and I usually managed to shove more pepperoni into my mouth then actually made it onto the pie. The fondness I have for those times sparked a desire to recreate the memories in my home, and Jimmy (my fiance) will never object to pizza.
Recently I recreated a Margarita and a rosemary and bacon pizza from this cookbook for a Saturday night in. The only difference is I added red onions to the goat cheese version and omitted the sauce to make a white pizza. If you’re short on time, buying ready made dough or crust is always an option. Here are the step by step pics:
