“We live in an age when pizza gets to your home before the police.” ~ Jeff Marder.
I find it quite difficult to make pizza at home when it is only a phone call or a few clicks away. However, since my hub and I have been ordering pizza rather frequently of late, I have completely changed my thoughts about home made pizza. Striving to stray away from the generic pizzas that I have grown tired of, I’m hoping to make something a little more gourmet-esque. That’s where my smoked salmon and asparagus toppings come into play. Instead of going for the usual pizza base, I have “sized zero” the pizza base by using Lebanese breads to leave extra room for chocolate fudge ice cream for dessert.
