You can dwell and talk about the definition of existential pizza all day in the other threads but I prefer to bake.
I'll existential you.
Yesterday I made a simple dough of 2-1/2 cups of bread flour, 1 tsp of salt, 1 tsp of IDY, 2 tbs of extra virgin olive oil 1 tsp of garlic powder and 1-1/4 cups of deep aquifer fresh well water. I mixed the ingredients and fermented in the fridge overnight. I took it out of the fridge about 3 hours before to let it go back to room temperature.
I then made pizza sauce with one small can of Muir Glen tomato paste for thickening, one can of Muir Glen Organic tomato sauce, 1 tsp minced garlic, 1 tsp minced onion, 2 teaspoons oregano, 1 tsp basil and 1/4 tsp of Rosemary. I only needed to use a bit of it.
Here is the dough with pizza sauce
Next I chopped up fresh basil and red onion
And then topped it with sliced baby bella mushrooms
A little bit of fresh 100% mozzarella
Finally I topped it with deli sliced pepperoni, not that cheap packaged kind
Baked on a pre-heated pizza stone for 10 minutes at 550 degrees and Callie the cat approved
Here my friends is the definition of pizza
