Pizza done right

A little while back I started making bread and found a no-knead recipe that is simply delightful, with a thick crunchy crust and delicious insides.

Well, I ended up buying the book (My Bread by Jim Lahey—Amazon). I had noticed the section on pizzas and vowed to try them someday. The first attempt last week was such a success that I also made some last night for a special date night with Kathy. Since Kristi is out of town we could give the mushroom pizza a try.


The crust is wonderful and crispy, and the toppings get baked to perfection. The best part is there is no sauce to get in the way of the vegetables or other toppings and no pile of mozzarella to cover every flavor. The veggie recipe calls for some parmesan to be sprinkled over the top, but it leaves the toppings in control of the flavor. Really, I didn’t miss the red sauce and cheese at all!

I have to say this is some of the best pizza I have eaten. We made extra to see how the leftovers reheat.
