A Winning Recipe

Oh my we have found a winner! W and I looooove Italian pizza. We ate it twice a day everyday when we traveled through Italy in 2006. Pre-wedding we both lived in Atlanta which had some almost-as-good options. But now as newlyweds we have been at a loss for truly amazing pizza.  Until I found a recipe for pizza dough here.

We went to Williams Sonoma where we bought this Emile Henry pizza stone, this pizza peel, and a jar of pizza sauce (if you have any merchandise credit like we did, this is a great way to spend it!). Once we had the tools, we made the dough as directed, brushed the dough with olive oil, topped with the pizza sauce, sliced roma tomatoes, mozzarella di bufala, and fresh basil from our patio.  W wanted some pancetta which he laid underneath the mozzarella. Make sure your oven and pizza stone are preheating for quite some time at 475, then cook your pizza for 12-15 minutes.

Our end result was amazing! I have a feeling we will be eating our pizzas often.

P.S. I promise that for future recipes I will post pictures of the process as well as the end product!
