Last night we had this marvelous salad with homemade pizza. It was my first go at pizza from scratch- surprising i haven’t attempted before, i know. Since i have been putting my mom’s old bread machine to use quite a bit lately i decided to try it’s pizza dough function. Seriously i don’t know why anyone wouldn’t use a bread machine, it is SO easy. All i did was dump in the ingredients ( i substituted 2 of the 3 cups of all purpose flour for whole wheat) and an hour later voila! dough was ready. I made two pizzas – one with marinara, purple basil, & fresh mozzarella and the second was pesto, shredded mozzarella, prosciutto & Parmesan. We agreed they were delicious combinations.
