Tomato sauce rounds: Pizza

If you are lucky enough to have a Trader Joe’s grocery store near you, I highly recommend their ready-to-bake pizza dough. They offer both wheat and white flour doughs for only $1.09. I have historically made my own pizza dough but waiting 3 hrs for the dough to rise is annoying…so, as of today TJ’s will be the source of my dough.

I rolled out the dough, added a light coating of tomato sauce that I made this past week, slices of low-moisture mozzarella and salt/pepper. Put it in the oven at 475F for 5 minutes, then took it out to add oregano, fresh spinach and a drizzle of olive oil. I returned it to the oven for 5 more minutes. Before serving, I squeezed a little lemon over the top, shredded some parmesan cheese and dug in. …so much better than most pizza joints, much better quality of ingredients.

Who doesn't like pizza?

  1. That looks a delicious pizza Jamie! It’s so easy to make pizza at home, I don’t understand why more people don’t have a go. I like my pizza with greenery on too, and nice to see the pizza not to overloaded with toppings, with minimal lovely toppings as you have you get a nice crispy base.
    Did you cook this on a pizza stone or a baking tray?
    I usually cook my pizza at the maximum temperature I can 480F in my indoor fan oven for 4-5 mins.
    Like our lemon drizzled on top, great idea.
    Cheers

      Thanks Marcus! …I just finished the whole pizza by myself..haha. I used a baking stone but still wasn’t satisfied with the lack of crispy crust. I think I’ll turn up the heat as you mention in your comment. I love a crispy crust!
