I dearly wish I could take pictures of tonight's dinner! Oh well, just an excuse to make it again since I know it will be absolutely delicious. I've been planning and looking forward to this homemade pizza all week. Ever since taking the first bite of that homemade focaccia, I couldn't stop thinking about how delicious it would be as a pizza crust. Well, the dough has been rising all day and it's almost pizza party time!
I mixed up half a recipe of No-Knead Focaccia from Budget Bytes, with a few minor tweaks. I used one cup of wheat flour, 3/4 cup white flour, and 1/4 cup cornmeal. I love crunchy pizza crust so I hope the cornmeal adds a nice crispness! I also sprinkled some garlic powder, dried oregano, dried basil, dried rosemary, and thyme into the dough. I sneaked a sniff of the dough and it smells incredible. Gets my tummy rumbling already!
I cut up a small green bell pepper, small red onion, and sliced a roma tomato very thin. I also grilled two links of Italian sausage and cut them into small slices. After a very thin coat of tomato sauce, I'll sprinkle shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese on top, along with more dried Italian herbs. I'll brush the edge of the crust with a thin coat of olive oil and slide it into the oven to get crispy, crusty, bubbly, gooey, and delicious!
Oh how I can't wait to sink my teeth into that pizza...
I don't think I've ever been so excited for a meal!
