There’s just something cool about making your own pie… Tonight I chose 2 different pizzas, the first being a Buratta heirloom pizza.
We love our pizza nights
Roll out the dough, then ladle a cup of your favorite Marinara sauce and add your fresh ingredients. Let’s see, there was… Oh yes, sliced fresh burrata cheese, which is really fresh mozzarella with the cream inside. Then we layered small heirlooms on top of the cheese, about a handful of sliced basil, salt, pepper, and a drizzle of organic olive oil. For the finishing touch drizzle a really good and well aged balsamic vinegar on the top. Not that vinegar tart stuff , I’m talking thick, sweet almost syrupy balsamic. Pop it in your pre-heated oven at 425, or higher, and cook until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbling. Or grill it. Either way it’s so amazing I could eat the whole pie.
So, so good…
Okay, on to the next. This one can be considered a pizza or a flat bread. I personally love thin crust pizzas but you can roll the dough to how thin or thick you like it. Drizzle olive oil all over the dough and set aside. In a saute pan add some olive oil, 1 onion sliced, 1 yellow squash sliced, half a bag of kale or whole head of kale, and finally a package of chopped pancetta. Mouth watering yet??
Seriously you could just eat it like this and be happy…
Saute the veggies until they are almost all the way cooked, then spread the veggie mixture on top of the dough and put it in the oven and cook until the pancetta is crisp and the crust is a nice golden brown, I also put a whole clove of garlic in some foil with olive oil and salt and roasted it for about 40 mins. It’s going to be a great finishing touch to this flat bread.

I just wait until the crust looks a perfect golden brown before I pull it out of the oven
Don’t forget the roasted garlic!!!
The roasted garlic was a perfect companion to these veggies
This was like a slice of heaven…
I love cooking but what I love even more is the people I am cooking for..
After dinner on the farm, kids running around and a nice visit from the in-laws who walked over from their house. They live just across the field.
