Let's have a Pizza Day
Would you be ready to call any Monday a fun day, if I offer you some really good authentic Italian pizza for the Monday dinner night? For me, pizza is always a YES.
Usually, Friday nights are pizza nights at my place, but if you would ask me to eat a slice or two of a pizza on a Monday, or any other day, then I won’t be able to say NO. In fact, I would be the happiest person in the world, if I would get to eat some classy pizza as a Monday dinner or on any other weekend dinner night. I Love pizza and homemade pizzas are the BEST. How about you?
Let me tell you an interesting real story.:
The ‘Perfect Pizza’ scenario was so different for me until I visited Italy. Like many of you, the first thought which came to my mind when I thought about our Italy trip was this — Visiting Italy, then pizza is a must-eat. I guess I don’t have to tell you that I am super excited about this pizza post. Isn’t ‘Pizza’ one of the most popular Italian foods in the world to be eaten on a trip to Italy? 🙂
This is how it all changed:
Before visiting Italy, I always thought that Domino’s or Pizza Hut’s pizzas are the real authentic pizzas. And when I ordered my first pizza in Venice, I expected that the same kinda pizza would come to my dinner table. But to my surprise, the pizza was so different in texture and taste of which I used to eat back home and in other European cities. Trust me, it was one of the best pizza experiences I ever had.
Venice is the place:
The pizzas there tasted much more like fresh flatbread with so many different toppings. Mmmmmm, and that was the time when I fell in love with the Italian style of pizza dough. And the best pizza I ate was at a canal-side restaurant on a summer night in the Venice. This place seriously had a good number of delicious joints to find great pizzas and the good thing was that you could have your takeaways and enjoy it while walking alongside the canals.
So after coming back home, I tried some authentic pizza dough recipes but nothing was as good as it tasted back in Italy. And after many trials, I found that the WOW factor was missing. After some years, finally one day I found a pizza dough recipe which was just the one I was looking for.
This came to the rescue:
One of my friends had a book, this: ‘Gennaro’s Let’s Cook Italian: Favourite Family Recipes’. This book had so many Italian recipes, but the one I wanted to try desperately was this pizza recipe from that book. I tried it, and it was LOVE at first sight. So this pizza dough is an adaptation from the recipe from this book. Making this dough is super easy, fun and stress busting. And that kneading? Believe me, those hand moments when you roll the dough back and forth does something really nice. You just need some good quality of red wine to experience the joy while you are baking your pizza.
Delicious raw veggies are placed on a bed of an authentic pizza base and topped with pizza sauce, raw veggies, plenty of mozzarella cheese + parmesan cheese, a drizzle of garlic oil, then baked to perfection.
This best veggie pizza recipe is a gastronome tour-de-force. And it’s simple to prepare at home. I am not exaggerating, but this vegetarian pizza is much better than any take-out pizza you’ll ever find in any of the regular Pizza restaurants. And the great thing about the topping is that you are free to add or omit the toppings to make it more suitable to your taste buds.
This vegetarian pizza tastes so good that even meat-lovers would love this one. I am so much in love with this traditional pizza dough recipe and hope you would love it too. 🙂
So let’s get started.
