I absolutely love pizza! In my world, it is its own food group. I love that you can make pizza so many different ways and they can all taste fabulous and I love how easy it is to make. This pizza recipe is my all-time favourite and it is soo easy!
To start I use this recipe for pizza dough. I rarely leave it to rise 24 hours but you definitely can do that. Sometimes I put it in the oven on low with a wet towel wrapped over the bowl so it rises more quickly. I also, sometimes like a bit of a thicker, more flatbread type dough so I don’t leave it to rise too much in that case.
This particular recipe is a white pizza so there is no tomato sauce but you could definitely add some if you prefer.
I spread my dough out on a pan and drizzle with oil of choice. Typically for pizza that is EVOO but, some say heating EVOO is bad as it oxidizes so choose what oil you prefer, or brush with grass fed butter. I also like to mince some garlic and spread out with the oil or butter.
Then I add some cherry or grape tomatoes, mushrooms, and feta cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the crust is golden. I then rip fresh basil leaves and disperse them over the pizza. To finish it off I drizzle with honey and cold pressed EVOO. I love the saltiness of the pizza and feta cheese combined with the sweetness of the honey.
That’s it! A super simple, rustic pizza recipe!
I love making pizza because it is always a great way to get the entire family involved in cooking dinner, especially the little ones!
