pizza!

pizza (09/10) 110/366, originally uploaded by one take movie.

Last night B and I made pizza. The basil and tomatoes were from our tiny garden. The mozzarella cheese was fresh. And the dough was ready to roll from Fresh & Easy.

We had planned on grilling it, but had to finish it off in the oven. The coals just didn't stay hot long enough.

What is really funny is that we had been watching Jimmy Kimmel recently. Jimmy assigned his "Uncle Frank" to make a pizza. Uncle Frank went to the local grocery store and spent $236. The end result was a single (double crust) pizza that had everything from imitation crab to caviar on it, and which Jimmy declared disgusting.

Our pizza cost around $8. And it was anything but disgusting.

p.s. this photo is by B. I didn't get a chance to take a photo.

Pizza for breakfast is tasty!

If you can find some ready-made dough, it is pretty simple. Sometimes local pizza places will sell you some.

It's so fantastic! Reminds me I haven't done Food Friday in forever!

Definitely overdue for some Food Friday!

I think we might do pizza once a week too. We have the pan. I might even try making my own pizza dough.

It was so good and easy. The hardest part was waiting! It would have taken less time had the grill not cooled off so quickly. In the end, I am thinking the oven is the way to go although you could taste that smokey flavor of the grill.

lol, true, the hardest part was waiting! XD But to me, it's the oven, we will never have the oven for pizza, but the smokey flavor sounds soooooooooo good. And who can resist mozzarella cheese? ::droooooooooooools::

It was. And I am quite the pizza snob. I loved most that the tomatoes and basil came from out little container garden. Both were very sweet and fresh.
