Yum Yum Friday!

Happy Friday friends!  I’m so glad the weekend is here.  What do you have planned for the weekend?  I’ll be heading to Connecticut and New Jersey for a photoshoot, can’t wait!

I’ve become obsessed with a new pizza creation we experimented with this week and wanted to share.  It’s kind of my new obsession…

Roasted Vegetable Pizza (makes one thin crust pizza – can double dough recipe if you like thicker crust, or for more pizzas)

Ingredients –
3/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon active dry yeast
1/2 cup lukewarm water
1 tablespoon olive oil

You can use any in-season veggies you like – for this version I used:

1/2 Eggplant – 1/4″ sliced
1 zucchini – 1/4″ sliced
1/2 Yellow Onion – chopped
4 Garlic Cloves
Handful Cherry Tomatoes – cut in half
1 large handful of chopped rosemary
1 Cup Mozzarella

Directions –
Mix dry ingredients, including yeast, in a large bowl. Add water and olive oil, stirring mixture until mixed well.  Once mixed, use your hands to form dough into a small ball.

Knead dough for a couple of mintues. Lightly oil the mixing bowl (I used a spritz of cooking spray)  put the dough back in the bowl – rub in the oil so ball is well coated, cover with plastic wrap and leave for two hours.

Around 20 minutes left until your dough is ready, preheat oven to 400 degrees and prep vegetables.  Place vegetables on a baking sheet, single layer and coat with olive oil or cooking spray and lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Roast for 45 minutes, until vegetables are browned.

Take the dough out, and press the air out.  Fold back into a ball and put back under plastic wrap for 20 more minutes.

Remove veggies from oven.  Roll out dough, place on pizza stone or parchment paper.  Smear olive oil, roaster garlic and chopped rosemary around dough to coat pizza.  Add toppings.  Place pizza stone directly on the grill and heat until browned.  Ours took about 20 minutes and had the best tasting, crispiest crust we’ve achieved at home.  The grill is my new favorite pizza making accessory…

Hope that you have a wonderful weekend!  See you back here next week.
