Pizza All Day!

Pizza All Day!

Posted by Anthony on October 23, 2015 in Tidbits

Last Saturday I decided it was high time to try some new pizzas. So I set out on a quest that, thanks to my sister, was coined #PizzaAllDay. Starting at breakfast and continuing through dinner, I ended up making 4 new pizza creations. It was a lot of time in the kitchen, but anyone who knows me knows how much I absolutely love homemade pizza days, so it was well worth it. And since all of these pizzas were new, they’re qualified for my 50 in 15 Challenge, moving me one step closer to my 50th recipe.

For all of these pizzas, I used the Pizza Americana dough recipe from my go-to pizza book, American Pie: My Search for the Perfect Pizza by Peter Reinhart. It’s a great all-purpose dough recipe that works perfectly for me when making pizzas in my oven.

Now, without further ado, on to the pizzas!

Serves: 4

Time: 15 min (active); 3 hrs (inactive)

Difficulty: Easy

This morning I was jonesing to try a new recipe to add to my 50 in 15 Challenge, and enlisted the help of my sister for ideas and inspiration. One of the recipe ideas she passed along was for slow cooker stuffed peppers, which intrigued me, as it would allow me to have a largely hands-off dinner with the slow cooker doing the bulk of the work. So I gave it a shot, and boy howdy am I glad I did. The end result was absolutely amazing, healthy, and delicious. I was instantly addicted, and am already looking forward to making them again (maybe even tomorrow). So if you’re looking for a super-easy, healthy, and flavorful addition to your dinner arsenal, you definitely need to give this a shot. You’ll instantly be glad you did!
