the ‘za of the week (mar 16 – mar 22)
This ‘Za of the Week came around quick. Time flies. This pie was very similar to last week’s, but we used sliced black olives instead of pineapple.
We also used bulk mozzarella that was shredded a little thicker than the usual mozzarella we used. The cheese melted more evenly with less spots and smoother than the finely shredded mozzarella.
I have an attachment to pepperoni pizzas. They seem to have the flavor I really look for in a tasty pizza. This must be why pepperoni is America’s favorite pizza topping.
Oh… what’s that?! Yes, to the right of the photo is a bubble. This happens from time to time, but this one wasn’t too crazy. It didn’t affect the pie much at all. I remember my days in the pizza shop when we’d get some of the biggest bubbles that would ruin a pie if it wasn’t taken care of during the baking process.
Yummy. Check out how those toppings relax in a sea of cheese. Since we used a bulk package of mozzarella, I think I used more cheese than usual. I did measure two cups of cheese, but yes, the cup was packed well so it could have been more than what we get in the two-cup packages we purchase. The savings are well worth it, since this has become a weekly ritual that we enjoy sharing with you here at the modern soapbox. =)
