When the moon hits your eye, like a big pizza pie, that's amore...

I shared a recipe for pizza sauce and a recipe for pizza dough, along with pictures of each, but I'm sure some of you are wondering what happened to the actual completed pizzas. Well, the original batch, made for our Super Bowl party, got assembled, baked, and eaten so quickly, I didn't get a chance to take pictures. Fortunately, with one ball of dough and a rather large pot of sauce left over, that meant my parents and I had "pizza: round two" a few days after the Super Bowl and I had a chance to capture our creation on camera. We each have pretty different pizza topping preferences, so we had a somewhat organized mix of pizza sections containing a mushroom-green pepper-onion mixture (with one or two surprise sausage pieces nestled in), sausage and basil, and plain cheese (with a scattering of sausage) and the result was a cheesy, saucy success.

Our concoction, before baking

Cooked until golden brown and bubbling. Yum!

So, if you haven't already tried making your own pizza, do it! It's such a nice change from the usual frozen, delivery, and fast food pizzas and it's so easy to make.
