Homemade Pizza

After discovering  pizza dough at Whole Foods this year, we had made number of pizzas last summer using heirloom tomatoes.

Our pizza is nothing fancy.  We usually make two kinds of pizza.  One is basic fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, tomato, and sliced red onion.   The other one is a "creative" pizza, for which the toppings are fashioned from whatever ingredients are available in the refrigerator.

Pizza are quick and fun to make, and  goes great with white wine, red wine, and sake.  Here are some of our efforts...

Meat sauce and tomato and mozzarella varieties

Mushroom, broccoli, and caramelized onion;  tomato and mozzarella

Roasted fingering potatoes, portabello mushroom, red onion, and green beans;  tomato and mozzarella

Steamed broccoli, mushroom, and caramelized onion; tomato and mozzarella

Sauteed eggplant, broccoli, Chinese cabbage, caramelized red onion; tomato and mozzarella
