After having pizza at Pizza Paradiso on Christmas Eve ( http://www.roadfood.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=24148
) you would think that would be enough. No way. Our Christmas dinner was pizza! OK, it is not Saturday night but since we will not have a complete kitchen for a few more weeks opportunity presented itself. I made two pizzas.
One was a Margherita pizza consisting of olive oil base, chopped onion, chopped garlic, fresh basil, Buffalo mozzarella cheese, some fresh parmesan and sliced Roma tomatoes again top with a splash of olive oil after it came out of the oven.
The other pizza was an unstrained Italian sausage sauteed with onion, garlic, oregano and hot pepper flakes, a light amount of pizza sauce, baby bella mushrooms, apple hickory smoked mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese.
I baked the pizzas on aluminum pans on top of a 13" pre-heated stone on the bottom rack in a gas oven at a maximum of 500 degrees. They took about 12 minutes each. The crust came out great. Not bad for make do in my daughter's kitchen.
