Pizza Night

Homemade pizza seems like too much work. So I've always added homemade sauce and toppings to store bought pizza crusts, until today. It was quite worth the time, and I don't intend to buy pizza crust ever again.

We still don't have a  peel/pizza cruster/baking stone; so our pizza was sort of oblong, made to fit onto that old faithful, the baking sheet.

The left side is mine, with the garlic hummus sauce and no cheese, the right side is A's, with no-garlic hummus (he's seriously alliophobic) and feta.

The three things you need for a great pizza: A good base, a good sauce and good cheese.

The good base came from this recipe. Next time, I intend to make a whole-wheat crust.
The good sauce, the tomato-cilantro hummus we made the other day. Pesto is another fun sauce I like to use, though a tomato sauce works as well.
The cheese- plain feta.
The vegetables – We used sauteed spinach, kalamata olives, cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and the very non-Mediterranean broccoli ( I just love the taste of roasted broccoli, and stole most of it off A's half as well.)

Such bliss.
