Homemade Pizza

On the cover of the October Issue of Food and Wine there was a yummy looking rustic pizza and a glass of wine. It looked so good, that my husband and I decided to make our own pizza and enjoy a glass of wine.

My husband went to Whole Foods (Whole Paycheck our friends call it) and picked up whole wheat pizza crust, pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella, fresh mozzarella and basil. At home, I caramelized a red onion and chopped up tomatoes from my parents gardens. We layered the sauce, cheeses, tomatoes, onions and basil and drizzled it with olive oil and sprinkled it with salt and pepper.

We baked the loaded pizza pie at 500 degrees for about 7 minutes and then put it under the broiler for a minute to brown the cheese. It turned out really delicious! We paired the pizza with a chopped salad.

For the salad, we sliced up a head of iceburg lettuce into 4 wedges and topped it with cucumber, tomatoes, caramelized red onion, bacon and homemade ranch dressing. I snipped some basil over the top and added a little cracked black pepper. It was a very tasty salad. We washed down the meal with a bottle (or two) of red wine.

The pizza looks amazing. I had the opportunity to eat your wedge salad. The onions and bacon make it delish!

It's one of my favorites. That and the chevre salad. Can't go wrong!
