I am not a huge fan of some holidays: Halloween, New Years Eve, and Valentines Day. So when Halloween came rolling around this year, I couldn't be happier that the plan was to stay in...especially after a long day on the football field. Ethan's cousin and best friend were in town, so we decided to show off the skills with our pizzas. We bought a pizza stone and cousin brought his pizza peel so we ready to try a few new things out.
We repeated the dough & sauce as my first post but went for four different pies. The stone was new for us, but was very simple. Four things to remember
- Keep stone in oven while it is preheating.
- Style up pizza on top of parchment paper.
- Cut access paper around the pizza.
- Place directly on the stone and let cook!
These two were thinner crusts and had bell pepper & mozzarella. The first one stopped there, the second went for some goat cheese, prosciutto and pineapple. The third (not pictured due to growling stomachs) had jalapeños for a little kick.
With a good chunk of dough (and cheese) left, we went for a true pan style crust straight on the pizza stone. Well, in all honesty we were trying to make a big thin crust but it ended up puffing up and becoming this circle of pure heaven. Seriously...look at that sea of cheese!
