We have what is becoming a tradition in our house.
Homemade pizzas on Friday night.
When I was growing up it seemed like Friday night was always an excuse for pizza.
I always wanted to be able to order from Dominoes because it was 'cool'(that's back when delivery was new and you got it free if it wasn't there in 30-minutes or less).
But, that only happened once in a blue moon since it cost 3x's more than making your own Chef Boyardee pizzas at home back in 1985.
So, I guess you could say we're continuing a tradition giving that I'm a freak for pizza and Brad loves to make them.
Brad makes his own dough and has been working to perfect cooking it for the past year.
A couple of months ago we actually had a pizza cook-off with our neighbor, The Wandering Gourmand, and his wife.
Brad noticed that he had a pizza peel and has been determined to get one ever since.
Well, we finally got one!
$9.95 at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
Brad got the dough ready on a regular pan and cooked it for 5minutes as we always do(it makes it crispier).
From there he moved it over to the pizza peel and 'decorated' his pie.
After decorating, he moved it to the rack.
That's right - he cooked it straight on the rack.
Don't freak out when I say this...
He did this with 3 pizzas.
That's right, he made 3 pizzas for us to eat on all weekend.
Well, and Buddy counts too.
(He hates the flash on the camera.)
All three of them were equally delish!
Having the pizza right on the rack makes it 10x's better.
The crust cooks evenly then you just peel the pizza off the rack and back onto your board.
And, onto a separate cutting board for slicing then eating.
Geez Louise I love Fridays!!
Have any of you tried a pizza peel?
