Fantasy PizzascapesPosted: June 4, 2009
We had a friend over for dinner last night and Tina wanted to try out a new pizza dough recipe. Instead of using yeast and letting the dough rise, you just substitute beer for the water (more or less). We didn’t have any tomato sauce or mozzarella in the house, so we just used some halved cherry tomatoes and the rest of the jack cheese I got on sale a few days ago. We thereby produced the following:
There you have a veggie sausage and pepper with the cherry tomatoes, as well as a homemade pesto (arugula, almonds, sun-dried tomatoes, lemon juice, and olive oil) pizza with roasted yellow squash and red onions.
We also tried a zataar pizza with a couple eggs cracked over the top. The problem was that without the wet veggies on top of the crust, it got a little over-crispy. Nevertheless:
The crust worked out great, and the best part is that when you use the one beer for the crust, the rest of the six pack is available for good ol’ fashioned drinkin’.
