Daring Bakers: Pizza Time!!


I LOVE pizza, I am from NY it's in my blood, and I could honestly eat it every day! So that is why I was so excited when the October Daring Bakers Challenge was announced! I do not like to cook but this was an exception! The recipe made 6 balls and I have only used 3 so far: 1 regular cheese pizza, 1 carmalized onions, mushroom and goat cheese pizza, and 1 calzone type pizza filled with onions, mushrooms, spinach, and cheese.

My pizza did not come out round and were a little thin but were still good, for the rest of the dough I might actually take the 3 balls and make 2 pizzas instead of 1. But were still yummy!! Check out the rest of the Daring Bakers!


If anyone would like the pizza recipe - let me know! It is very long!!!!


Just plain cheese pizza - the sauce was actually really good (I am not a sauce fan!)



Carmelized Onions with mushrooms and Goat Cheese!



My attempted "Calzone"



The ingredients were cooked when I put them into the dough and were too hot so it fell apart right away and I had to flip it over but it was still delicious!

Your pizzas look delicious and despite the calzone coming apart it looks tasty!

Love the calzone idea! That's genius. I was fretting over what to do with so much dough (a girl can only eat so much pizza - I know, blasphemy!). Lovely!

I don't think pizzas have to be perfectly round to taste good. Free form is cool. The fact that you attempted a calzone is to be commended! Good job.
