Favorite Things Week! Pizza Making!

Look at me. I'm like Oprah! Okay not really.

Thought I would share some of my favorite things this summer!

Husband and I have been having fun making different kids of pizzas for friends and family. You make recall that I gave him this amazing pizza stone from Williams Sonoma.

It's a big hit (and half the price of the other one they have), and has been fun to use. We get our dough pre packaged from Trader Joes but word on the street is you can go to any pizza place and buy dough! Brilliant!

Here are the pizzas we've been making lately:

Pesto, Mushroom, Goat Cheese

We use store bought pesto, but go ahead and make your own if you are feeling sassy. Also crimini mushrooms are best and most flavorful. 

Ham and Peas

This recipe is from Martha Stewart. She knows a few things about cookin'.

Smokey Vegetable

From Family Circle, a recipe I was dying to try! Love smoked mozzerella!


I like this recipe from Tyler Florence.

Pear, Blue Cheese and Carmelized Onion

YUM! Great recipe here.

Asparagus and cracked egg

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. After shaping the pizza on a baking sheet, spread the pesto over the pizza dough. Decoratively place the asparagus spears over the top, then add the crumbled feta cheese. Place in the oven for 3-4 minutes. Take the pizza out of the oven and crack the two eggs on top of the pizza on each side, place it back in the oven for another 7-8 minutes.
For runny eggs, you’ll want to prebake the pizza for a longer time 4-5 minutes then add the cracked eggs and finish baking for an additional 6-7 minutes.
For hard yolks, you can place the eggs on top of the pizza before you place it in the oven and bake for the full 10 minutes, or so.

What have you been making this summer?

We've been making pizzas, too...a zucchini crusted one (yum) topped with feta,black olives, basil, mushrooms and sliced roma tomatoes. I buy whole wheat dough from our grocery store deli, too. Makes it even easier. Must remember that TJ's has it, too! All of your pizzas sound so yummy!
