I love throwing together a homemade pizza, mimicking my favorite combos from restaurants for a fraction of the price.
I mentioned that I stopped by Trader Joe's a few days ago. While most of the items I picked up weren't true deals, the whole wheat pizza crust I bought definitely was. At about $1/crust, it was a great price for the type of product.
I bought it with toppings that were already in my fridge in mind - kalamata olives, roasted red peppers, feta, onions, and pesto - a Greek pizza of sorts.
There was nothing revolutionary about this meal, but it sure was tasty. The great thing about homemade pizza, is you can easily adjust the ingredients I used to fit what's already in your house.
So here you go, my "recipe."
Whole Wheat Pizza Crust (I used Trader Joe's)
Shredded Italian Blend or Mozzarella Cheese
Kalamata Olives - chopped
Roasted Red Peppers - chopped
caramelized onions (see directions below)
- Thinly slice one onion. Add olive oil a large frying pan and heat over medium heat. Add onions and cook at least 20-30 minutes, stirring frequently, allowing onions to brown until they look like this...
- Prepare pizza crust as directed. Top evenly with pesto and shredded cheese.
- Add olives, red peppers, onions, and feta to taste.
- Bake according to crust directions.
