Homemade Pizza and a Beer, The Dinner of Champions

Phew.. this has been a long hot day.  I've been slaving away all day in the kitchen, sweating and cursing and breaking things and making new ones.  I have to hold off telling you part of it till tomorrow cause shhhh, it's a secret.  But I can fill you in on dinner!

Dinner was homemade pizza, made with the same crust I used to make this.  The recipe for the crust is here.  I made two, one for J and one for me.  I started mixing the dough in the kitchenaide.

Then I formed a ball, rubbed it with olive oil, and let it rise for an hour.  I ended up with this:

While it was rising, I got the toppings together:

Pepperoni, pepper, onion for J.  Mushroom, pineapple, pepper for me.

I split the dough and made two pizzas.



Cook em up!!!

Sorry about that.  I got a little carried away and forgot I was a food blogger before I cut into mine.  It was very, very good.  Especially when washed down with a Labatt Blue Light Lime :)  Bud Light Lime used to be my favorite beer, but since Labatt started making a lime beer, it has trumped all others.  Labatt is my favorite brand since I'm almost Canadian you know.  I come from a town that waves both flags after all.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  Mine was pretty boring and uneventful so this is all the fun stuff I have for y'all today.  See you tomorrow when I can share the rest of my day!
