Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a great week and have an even better weekend. It is beginning to get very exciting around our house. Our kitchen remodel is getting ready to begin. It has been a long time coming but I am so happy it’s starting and am excited to see the final look.
One of the first traditions that my husband and I started was one we called Monday Night Pizza Night. When we first were dating, he has Monday’s off and we would get a premed pizza dough from Publix along with an assortment of ingredients for toppings. That was always one of my favorite traditions we had and one that I have missed since we ended up taking a break from doing it. It had been tough to keep up with due to our busy work schedules and taking care of kids. But I think it is back to stay now and I have not been more excited!
One important step that we found makes the biggest difference when it comes to making a pizza, is using a pizza stone. We leave the pizza stone in the oven as the oven is preheating and we are kneading the dough. Then, once the oven has preheated, we will take the pizza stone out and then place the dough on top and begin adding the sauce and toppings. At 400 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on the thickness, our pizza takes approximately 16 minutes to bake.
To start this tradition back up, we did a half and half pizza. One half was a meat lovers and the other half was pesto, grilled chicken, and artichokes. It turned out amazing and I now I am craving pizza just about every night. Let me know your thoughts and I hope you all have a great weekend and week!
