Peet Zuh

Hi guys! HAPPY FRIDAY!!! <3 Hope you have something fun going on this weekend 🙂

Last night after work and bootcamp, things got a little messy around here.

It was pizza night!

I LIVE for pizza 😀

We used this mix for the dough, which I bought a while ago and forgot about.

I’m not gluten-free but tend to eat a lot of gluten-free stuff because it’s *usually* healthy and I like to test different things for future gluten-free personal chef clients.

(Random trivia: my brother, who is a chef, is also a pizza ninja. He used to work at a gourmet pizza place in Tucson, Magpie’s, and I’d often go harass him for whole wheat veggie pizza after dance class)

While the pizzas were pre-baking, we got out all of our toppings.

toppings

Sauce, queso, plump and juicy kalamata olives, organic pepperoni and ham for the Pilot, mushrooms, tomatoes and a green bell pepper

I covered my pizza with nooch and red chili flakes, and it was pretty much amazingfacerockinggloriousfantastic.

LOVED the crust- dense and chewy.

Even in all of its glory, this pizza wasn’t quite as good as the deep dish I had in Chicago…

Guess I’ll have to go back? 😉

This morning, I’m off to teach bootcamp and then TurboFire it up, then running errands before heading back to work.

I’m out like sauerkraut <3

    Mmmm, that makes me want to make some pizza stat. I need to work on my homemade crust though- I braved the kitchen and made my own whole wheat dough one time and I felt like it was too dry and lacking the flavor you get with store bought crusts or pizza from actual pizzerias. Annnnyways, I hope you have a lovely Friday!

    I really enjoy your posts.
    You seem to be a very happy young woman and that warms my heart. Could you help me out with something. What does this mean…”<3"? I see it on your site and many others. I am a bit older and less experienced with the web and I can't figure out what it means. Cheers, Kirsten

    Omigosh, I totally agree. I’m not a pizza person by any means, but I once had this deep dish (more like a pie) pizza in Chicago….I still dream of it. And I too will come back for it someday.

    I love Aldous Huxley! I read “Brave New World” in high school and proclaimed it the best novel ever. I thought he was genius.

    I also think pizza is genius, though, so take that with a grain of salt!

    Mmm. Salty pizza…

    I had no idea Bob’s Red Mill makes a pizza crust mix! I need to keep my eye out for that!

    I have been wanting to make my own pizza dough, but a lot of the recipes call for yeast. I have never baked with yeast and it makes me a little nervous. I will look out for that brand and try. YOur pizza looks delish and very drool worthy.

    That’s definitely my favorite crust to use(I am gluten free). It’s a great option because it’s made with whole grains whereas gf pizza doughs are usually made with white rice. I like to add a tablespoon of dried Italian herbs to any crust for that extra flavor.
