When I was in college, my roommate and I made a lot of pizza. We used to joke about one day opening a pizzeria because we were getting so good at making it! It made for a lot of fun times and Friday nights with delicious pizza. An essential in homemade pizza is a pizza stone. It makes the crust crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I would recommend a pizza stone to anyone who makes pizza more than a few times a year.
We made our favorite pizzas since we hadn't had homemade pizza in such a long time. The first pizza had marinara sauce, pepperoni and black olives. The second had pesto sauce, chicken, pine nuts and roasted garlic. (Find recipe for roasted garlic here.) They were so good, especially the pesto chicken pizza!
