So I spent two hours today making an extravagent pizza. That kind of time investment pretty much assures that I need to share with my readers!
Start with the amazing pizza dough recipe that I posted. Personally, I think that toppings are an individual taste thing… but here’s what I did.
1 15 oz. can Dei Fratelli pizza sauce
8 oz. fresh mushrooms
1 or 2 chicken breasts, either grilled or seared and baked
2 cups shredded mozzarella
12 slices pancetta (I lightly fried before baking pizza)
I assembled in this order: pesto, pizza sauce, chicken, mozzarella, italian seasoning, mushrooms, parmesan, pancetta
After eating this masterpiece, I have a few observations. First, it tasted better the second day. Therefore I’m thinking I might assemble the pizza, put foil on top and then let it sit in the refrigerator overnight… THEN bake it.
Second, after watching Tyler Florence’s Ultimate pizza show, I’d try assembling the pizza in the following order: pesto, mozzarella, pizza sauce, chicken, mushrooms, paremsan mixed with Italian seasonings.
