When the Moon Hits Your Eye Like a Big Pizza Pie, That’s Amore!

“That’s Amore” by Dean Martin started playing on a television show the other night. I think that my subconscious engulfed the words “Pizza Pie” because a few days later, I felt the urge to make a pizza when I woke up on Sunday morning. I’m not sure if this song is where my innate desire originated from, however, I’m glad that it did because it gave me the chance to prepare a fantastic dinner!

The decision to make pizza was definitely prime. I didn’t have to visit the store because I could combine ingredients I already had at home. Plus, I also happened to have a packet of active dry yeast in the cupboard, so I could be entirely authentic and make the pizza dough from scratch! After much pondering, I decided to make a simple Three Cheese and Tomato Pizza.

Pizza Dough

Step 1: Mix Active Dry Yeast With Warm
Water and Olive Oil; Let Sit for 10 Minutes


Step 2: Combine Yeast Mixture
With Flour and Salt


Step 3: Gather Dough into a Ball; Put In Bowl
and Let Sit Under a Cloth for 2 Hours (To Let Rise)

Three Cheese and Tomato Pizza 

Step 1: Cut Tomatoes; Mince Garlic
and Add to Two Tablespoons of Olive Oil


Step 2: Roll Out Pizza Dough


Step 3: Place Garlic Oil on Dough, Put
Cheese and Tomatoes on Top, Bake!

[Nifty Pizza Cutting Scissors!]

I should have baked the pizza a few minutes longer (to brown the edges), but at least I learned a lesson for next time. All in all, the pizza tasted great and I think I can still hear that Dean Martin song playing in my head…

Cheers!
