Pizza From Scratch

Homemade pizza from homemade dough. Tomatoes in a can, imported from Italy (San Remo variety grown in volcanic soil)(at discount from Costco or Restaurant Depot). Grated cheese from Italy (at discount from Costco or Restaurant Depot). American made mozzarella cheese (at discount from Costco). In the absence of fresh herbs from our garden, we use dried herbs such as those sold by the king of spices, Penzey's.

Why bother to make homemade dough?
1. It is less expensive to make at home.
2. It is free of chemicals and preservatives.
3. It is the flour you want and is without additional products (i.e. soy)
4. It tastes better.

There are numerous free recipes for pizza dough on the Internet. We use either the recipe in our King Arthur Flour 200th Anniversary Cookbook or a recipe in My Bread by Jim Leahy.

Disclosure: I was not paid to write this blog post.
