Homemade Pizza?

Recommended Posts

For those of you who make your own pizza, what kind of crust do you use? I ususally use Boboli (sp?) because it is easy. Is there a good raw dough you make or buy, or do you also use Boboli?

 

We're having a make-your-own pizza party with all kinds of fun toppings :o)

I usually use raw dough from shoprite. I think you can also get it from a bakery or pizza place. My biggest suggestion is to get a pizza stone.... it cooks a nice even crunchy crust. Have fun! I love homemade pizza!

Homemade pizza is the best. We had a pizza party a couple weeks ago and everyone was able to make their own pizzas and then we all shared. After we were done, we had a vote to see who had the best pizza. It was a fun inexpensive night with friends. I buy my dough from a local Italian store. Hopefully there is one in your area. If not, try a local pizza place (not a chain) and just ask them if they sell the dough. Good luck and have fun!!

I love Boboli for a quick home made pizza. However, I very much LOVE me a home made crust. My mom makes her own sourdough crust...she's all crafty & has a jar of sourdough starter in the fridge at all time. For those of us that still work, I think that the stuff in the freezer section is still pretty great. I also agree w/the pizza stone - that thing rocks big time!

Thanks guys! There is an Italian deli near me that sells pasta dough and I bet they sell pizza dough too. Otherwise I think I've seen pizza dough in the refrigerated section of Trader Joe's now that you mention it. Christa your mom's crust sounds gooood, I love sourdough anything! I'll look into the pizza stone too :o)

Mmm...bbq chicken pizza sounds good. I'll add chicken and bbq sauce to my list of toppings. I'm trying to get somethig for everyone, from the basic pepperoni person to the more adventerous. There are a lot of toppings but it's easy to set them out and let people do their thing.

 

This is what I have planned so far:

 

homemade sauce

mozzerella

cheddar

goat cheese (DH hates the stuff, more for me!)

pecorino romano cheese

pepperoni

spicy italian sausage

linguica

prosciutto

clams (garlic & clam pizza and wine...omg)

mushrooms

roma tomatoes

artichoke hearts

basil

diced garlic

red onions

olives

pineapple

red pepper flakes

 

What am I missing?

I buy a cheap packet of dough mix. But only because we grill our pizzas--- we could slap some toppings on top of cardboard, throw it on the grill and BAM! Fabulous pizza!! :) Doesn't seem to matter what kind of crust we use when we grill it---- we devour the damn things like a couple potheads on a binge....

we use the pillsbury stuff from a can... i like the taste of it, but would def. buy from a pizza parlor if i was having a party.

 

i looove looove loooove goat cheese! yummy on pizza! what about ricotta cheese? i know lots of people who like white pizzas.

 

my favorite pizzas are anything with vegetables (peppers, mushrooms) and baked ziti pizza, which is fantastic, but two meals in one, and probably not so great for a party.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
