Valentine's Day is a day to spend time with those that you love, so with no questions asked Ethan and I decided a pizza night in would be the perfect date night. Without knowing what kind of pizza we wanted to make and the grocery store still in our future, we made some of the dough first thing in the AM so it could rise all day. We tend to change something up each time we make our pizzas, this time we went with all bread flour instead of mixing in any all-purpose like we normally do.
10 hours without food (if you know me, you know I eat every 2-3) and arms full of grocery bags we couldn't have been happier to come home to a bowl full of rising dough.
First pizza was a classic margherita - our go to sauce, slices of a mozza ball, and some grated parmesan.
Second pizza was huge doughy platform (seriously so much dough), dusted with garlic butter and endless shredded mozzarella & provolone.
In light of Valentine's weekend, we decided to go hot hot hot and cook these at pizzas at 520.
The first pizza was topped with more grated parmesan cheese and fresh basil. The second didn't need a single finishing touch - it was perfect the way it came out of the oven.
We think that this cheesy pizza was our #1 creation. Since the dough had risen all day it had this great chewiness as well as a hint of garlic within every single bite. We took the few minutes to take our necessary pictures and then it was time to devour.
