As an aficionado of take-out and frozen pizzas, the homemade fare was a welcome challenge. Annie Somerville’s pizza dough recipe is outstanding and came out perfectly every time. (My presentation could use improvement, but the taste and texture were great.) We invested in the freshest ingredients we could find as well as top-quality cheese. Both really made a difference in the end products.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed using gorgonzola cheese on a pizza – an ingredient that would not otherwise have gone on my pizza radar but for the challenge of preparing every recipe.
The Mexican Pizza was our favorite. It looks slightly odd, but it tasted great.
