Thursday Was Pizza Day

We got the hankerin' for a pizza this week, so I made a couple for lunch on Thursday. I'm loving the new dough recipe (thanks Tom) and I can either make the dough the day before and refrigerate it overnight, or I can do it early in the morning on pizza day. I made this dough in the morning.

The first of two delicious pizzas.

We had some smoked lardons (bacon) and a few mushrooms in the fridge, so I sautéed those along with an onion. Ken grated the cheese -- in this case it was comté from eastern France. We thawed some of our home-made tomato sauce and fired up the oven.

The pizzas were excellent with some of our local red wine and a green salad after. Perfect for a snowy day!


  1. A great looking pizza! I'm glad the dough is working out. Today's project is to start looking for a whole wheat crust we can make in the wood-fired oven.

  2. After seeing that pizza, the first thing I did was check air fares. If I come will you make another one for me? Is Tuesday good for you?

  3. That looks superb. And scrumptious.

  4. Is there a way to find this new Tom's dough recipe?

  5. By the way, how does Callie like the snow?

  6. tom, that sounds great. I'm also going to experiment with your recipe some more. This time, I'm going to substitute some corn meal for part of the flour.

    judy, these turned out very nice looking! And tasty, too!

    michael, not hard to do, IMHO.

    larry, Tuesday's good. What time shall we expect you? ;)

    jean, it was!

    lobean, here it is: pizza crust

    cheryl, she doesn't mind it at all. Like it's not even there!

  7. ARRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!! I am sooooooooo hungry at this moment! I just saw that DELICIOUS pizza pic and remembered your pizza stone... I looked for one in Italia but didn't find on.... Next time I'm in the U.S. I'll get one!
    We're up in Strasbourg now so the next picture I put on my blog will be of a tarte flambé!!!!!

  8. Thanks for the recipe link Walt! We will give it a try soon. A few weeks ago we made the leek tart which was incredibly delicious.


Tell me what you think!
