Totally branched out today and made pizza for dinner-with homemade crust!
The crust is actually a flatbread recipe that I have taken from 12 servings to 1. The dough is super simple-yeast, water, and flour that you let bubble, then add a little more flour, water, salt (and whatever herbs, flavorings you want) then bake for only 7 minutes.
I topped it with caramelized onions-white onions sautéed until translucent and soft. Then I add a splash of sweetner (brown or white sugar works too), and a few teaspoons of balsamic vinegar. Left on low, the onions and balsamic combine to become thick and rich and so so sweet. Then I put them on the pizza along with some cheese (goat or feta is ALWAYS preferred) and topped with some spinach. This is really good-and it’s really good for you too. And the pizza is huge! I know my photog skills and equipment are seriously lacking, and it’s all about to get worse because I have no camera…so I’ll be using my phone for a few days. Lovely.
This is a spin-off pizza of one my mom started making a couple years ago from a recipe in Runner’s World. This one isn’t quite as rich, but I love having it be a personal size. I tend to make on meal at a time. I don’t like having leftovers in the fridge, because then I just want to eat it all. And since I love being in the kitchen and cooking, it’s ok to be cooking each meal. This will probably change when I get a real life, but for right now it works for me.
