Food Friday: It's been a while

A few weeks ago (and then again last weekend), the boyfriend and I made pizza.

Pizza dough

I made some homemade whole-wheat dough (from a great resource of recipes-check it out!). I'll definitely make it again. It was super quick (I used rapid active yeast). The dough comes together quickly, especially with the use of the Rapid yeast, because it eliminates the need for the first rise.
Toppings included: fresh mozzarella (sliced; it melts awesome), turkey sausage, salami, leeks, bell pepper, kalamata olives, mushrooms, and pesto for the sauce. I precooked the vegetables and sausage, to minimize the water content. It was divine.

I've said it before, but any recipe where you can use what you've got is a perfect choice in my book.


Happy food Friday!


  1. Oh, that looks tasty! I'm always trolling for whole wheat pizza dough recipes - I still haven't found one that I liked.

  2. I've always been a dummy when it comes to dough. You'll have to walk me through it because your pizza sounds awesome ... minus the mushrooms. :)

  3. Looks amazing! I love whole wheat crust on pizza. I will have to give this a try.

  4. I make pizza once a week. This is the best pizza pan ever, I HIGHLY recommend:

    I have a couple of links to other pizza doughs as well, if you want to try them out.

    And pesto. Pesto as pizza sauce is the greatest thing ever.
