Pizza Night!

I felt like having pizza last week. So I made one with Pillsbury pizza dough. Make sure you have these ingredients on hand: tomato pasta, tomato sauce, Marinara sauce (if you like), tomatoes (optional), Pam or other cooking oil, mozzarella cheese, and anything else you want to add to your pizza.

Pillsbury makes a tasty pizza dough. I also decided to make fluffy bread rolls.

For a nice crispy crust, you should pre-bake the pizza dough for 5 minutes. It’s best to spray Pam or some other cooking oil on a cookie sheet before spreading out the dough. Heat the oven to 400F and stick the dough in! Meanwhile, make the pizza sauce. I used  ¾ cup tomato sauce, ¼ cup Marinara sauce, 2 tbsp. tomato paste, garlic powder, salt, pepper, oregano, and parsley.

Whisk the ingredients together and spread over the pre-baked dough to make a thin layer. Sprinkle about 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce, making sure to coat it evenly.

Add sliced mushrooms and diced Canadian bacon.

Bake for 10-15 minutes to get a crispy crust!

This is what it looks like when it’s done:

I served the pizza with some leftover chicken (see Thyme Chicken, the first post), mashed potatoes (I mixed in paprika and parsley), a side salad, and the biscuits! I have to work on my dish presentation a bit, but how else am I supposed to fit the oddly-shaped pizza in there?

Aha! Someone stole a little bite from a piece I was about to wrap up for later:

To re-heat, simply stick it in the oven on low (about 200F), or zap it in the microwave (but that might make it soft and gooey).
