Trader Pizza

When I got home from work today I made a pizza. It wasn't quite from scratch, I used some dough I bought at Trader Joe's the other day.

This is what it looked like when it was done. There's just something about a lot of melted cheese on top of red sauce that looks so damn inviting.

The pictures below kinda show what I did to make dinner. I started out by rolling out the dough on a lightly floured board with a small glass bottle. Sounds odd but it works pretty well.

Then I tossed the dough in a rectangular baking pan and baked at 350f for 8 minutes to get the crust a little crusty. After that I pulled out the pan---the dough had a lot of bubbles in it but I don't know if that's obvious in the picture below---and added pizza sauce plus a bunch of Italian seasoning herbs.

Then the cheese. Mozzarella on the bottom, a mix of provolone, asiago, fontina and Parmesan above that and then some feta on top. Yum.

I baked the pizza at 350 again for another 8 minutes and then ate it. Half, anyway. I'll tell you, I don't like the whole wheat pizza dough nearly as much as the regular flavor. Other than that it was pretty darn good.

I thought you said you'd stopped blogging every day because you were on Facebook...

If you put a rolling pin on your Christmas gift list Ibet someone would buy it for you.

I doubt it, GG. Nobody likes me. Besides, I already have a traditional wood rolling pin. It's a little too big for this pizza though---and the dough sticks less to glass than wood.
