|the pizza work flow: one already in the oven, |
one on the peel getting toppings, and one getting rolled out.
|asparagus & fontina (Trisha's idea... Great combo!)|
|salami with marinara sauce and mozzarella|
I also love to make my own sauce with a simple tomato sauce base, italian seasonings, loads of garlic, and onion powder. When I have the chance I experiment with store-bought pasta sauces. Newman's Own Organic was our sauce of choice this weekend. Good basic start.
There is a puttanesca that I found works GREAT for pizza, made by LaFamiglia DelGrosso. Oooooh, this sauce is yu-um and even won some awards! It's just the right consistency, and has a nice brine to it (as Linda, my genius cook friend, pointed out). It plays well with veggies, salami and any type of good pizza cheese.
