Friday Pizza Night

Friday Pizza Night

Sweet and Smokey Pear and Prosciutto Pizza

My children have deemed Fridays “Friday Family Movie Night”. We rent a movie, make pizza, and eat popcorn and dessert. They have come to love this tradition and look forward to it weekly. I love it too because pizza is extremely easy to make. I usually just pick up two dough balls from my local pizzeria Friday morning.

This last Friday I made an amazingly delicious concoction of a pizza. Caramelized pear, smoked mozzarella, prosciutto, arugula, and grated pecorino romano. The combination of the smokiness (I think that is a word??) from the mozzarella and the prosciutto with the sweetness of the pear was to die for!

Get creative with your pizzas, they turn out best that way! Have a great weekend!

    Mmm. That is a fantastic idea to get the dough ball from the local pizzeria in the morning. I’ve never thought of that — and it’s what makes me apprehensive about making it from home. How do you bake it properly in an oven? I still have to figure that one out too.

      Hey Barbara! The dough balls are pretty inexpensive too ( I only pay $3 per ball). As for the oven, I preheat the oven to 400 degrees, put my pizza dough (rolled out) in while I gather my toppings. I usually leave it in there for about 8 minute…until it puffs. Then I remove it, add all my toppings, and bake for another 15-20 minutes. It turns out perfect every time!!! Thanks for checking out my blog and please let me know if you try it!

    Home made pizza nights at our house on a friday as well. And I live in Bangkok, Thailand.

    As for some unusual toppings – two of the best pizza’s I ever had were in Johannesburg at a pizzeria which was in Sandton. They had 2 unusual toppings which I remember to this day.

    1 Brie Cheese and Cranberry
    2 Potato, Rosemary with Strawberry Jelly (and of course mozzarella)

    I love how you experiment with toppings. I think I will be having a word with the Friday chef about those conventional seafood toppings…
