When you kneed pizza...

Love homemade pizza, but not sure how to home-make the dough? I felt the same way...until Google led me to this recipe. Apparently it's a classic from the Joy of Cooking, and it's delicious. Quick and easy to make, it resulted in the closest thing to a professional pizza crust I've ever kneeded and baked. The best part? How much this dough puffs up in the oven. Seriously, I looked away for three minutes and was shocked at how much it had risen.

Sprinkling the pan with cornmeal before pressing the dough down makes it look especially restaurant-styled.

My free-formed vegetarian pizza. Fresh mozzarella, cilantro, and slow-roasted tomatoes, among other toppings.

Mitch's deep-dish pepperoni pizza. Freshly-sliced pepperoni, aged-cheddar, and caramelized onions.

We also sprinkled out respective doughs with dried herbs and spices. In the mix were basil, oregano, thyme, and chili powder (yum!). Fresh garlic was also added to the dough. Why not make your own homemade pizza for dinner tonight?
