We're almost halfway though the month! Day 13! We've gone 13 days without eating out and 13 days of making our meals at home from scratch. Good Lordy haha. We're doing good though and I am so, so proud of BigBear and all that's he's put into this! I was so worried that he wouldn't make it this far haha. I think the fact that I've been making some homemade/from scratch pizzas though it helping him along!
I keep a few slices in the fridge and when we're hungry and don't feel like cooking, we just heat them up, enjoy our pizza and we are still sticking to the challenge. I may have to admit that we've had pizza for like three days in a row. Don't judge! haha We're having Salmon tonight so I'm changing it up, but that pizza is just so darn good and it makes me feel like I'm eating junk food without actually eating junk food!
Pizza not junk food? What?! Um... yes, it's true. I don't feel very guilty when I eat this pizza, mainly because the whole thing is made from scratch and ridiculously easy to make. Whole wheat flour is on the clean eating approved list and that's exactly what the crust is made out of. Even the sauce it made from scratch.
I've always struggled with making tomato sauce, but the directions I got from Anne made the perfect sauce that I've been making a ton of for these pizzas!
I've also been a scaredy cat when it comes to working with yeast, but I seem to be mastering it when it comes to pizza dough! Well, I don't know if mastering is the right word, but let's just say that I've gone from ordering Delivery Pizzas to Making homemade Spinach and Mozzarella pizzas and my Pizza LOVING husband hasn't complained once!
I love using fresh mozzarella slices for these pizzas but you could use shredded mozzarella as well.
I just think it looks and taste better with the slices of mozzarella. ^^^ Before going into the oven!
Emerges with lovely melted mozzarella cheese!
