That's Amore

kale, garlic oil, red pepper, havarti, sun dried tomato, fig balsamic

So fitting that this post comes after another about pizza....we really do eat pizza that much! The pizza addiction started years ago with Brent's attempt at recreating Pizza Hut dough. (He has some love affair with the hut!) So, for years we piled the toppings high on his thick yet tasty dough. Toppings such as sundried tomatoes, garlic, spinach, mushrooms, pesto, zucchini, olives, fresh herbs, feta and the list goes on. No pepperoni and cheese here!

We continued this way until recently when one evening we needed a quicker, easier dough recipe. To the internet! In a few short minutes, Brent had the dough set to rise (oh, the joys of a food processor!) and no sooner were the pizzas ready to eat. Brent had suddely discovered one of the easiest and most delicious thin crust recipes out there! With a few modifications, this recipe has quickly become our fav.  Now, weekly we throw whatever we have on two pizzas. Last night it was balsamic roasted asparagus, red pepper, onion, garlic, and eggplant with goat cheese on one, and mushrooms, four cheeses, and garlic oil on the other. Amazing!

Try it out for yourself. Trust me, nothing is better than getting your pizza exactly how you like it (unless of course you love all that generic cardboard junk!)
