My girlfriend and I make an Organic pizza!!!

Well mostly organic that is! Upon leaving Whole Foods Market, we realized that we had forgotten cheese and pepperonis!!! Oh well, we ended up grabbing some from Wal-Mart. We followed two different instructions from other bloggers online that blogged about making a pizza from scratch.

We followed this persons instructions for making the dough: Honey dough.We made everything by hand starting with prepping the dough. We had to let it sit for a few hours after we were done to let it expand and what-not.

While letting the dough sit, we started making the tomatoe sauce. We sort of based our sauce on this recipe. Instead of buying canned tomatoe paste, we baught 5 organic tomatoes. I wasn't sure how to go about making sauce from them, so I decided to blend them! It turned out really watery, but that wasn't a problem. I diced up an onion and some garlic, then threw it in with the sauce. I then poured the liquidy goo into a pot and turned the stove on to high. I added the 2 tablespoons of basil and the 2 table spoons of dried Oregano. I couldn't get Kosher salt and by the time I was making sauce, I completely forgot to add salt!!! Even though I forgot the salt, I think the best thing that I made was the sauce!! I waited until most of the water had boiled out, leaving me with the fresh tomatoe and herbs! Mmmmmm!!!

After prepping the sauce, it was time to flatten the dough ball, sauce it, top it, then stick it in the oven!!! We let it bake for about 15 minutes and here you have it!!! Honey doughed pepperoni pizza! All made from simple ingredients at home! It was one of the best pizzas I had ever had, plus it's all organic. You can't go wrong there!

Thanks for reading. :0)
