On Friday night my family had "make-your-own-pizza" night. I think this was the first time I'd ever had homemade pizza but it certainly won't be the last. My sister got three kinds of pizza dough from Trader Joe's (garlic, herb, and regular)* and everyone brought different pizza toppings. Although I love the simplicity of genuine Italian pizza, I couldn't help but pile on olives, mozzarella, basil and mushrooms. And onions and tomatoes. And extra cheese.
The best part? It wasn't greasy at all. It was filling and so fresh because we prepared all of the ingredients ourselves. It was also tons of fun. Great idea, sister!
*For reference, we split one package of the Trader Joe's dough between two people so everyone could have their own individual pizzas. Even then, I could hardly finish mine.
