One of the best pies around, in my opinion at least, is pizza pie! We clearly love pizza around here, so we had to include it for Pi(e) Week.
We usually stick with the Pioneer Woman’s recipe for the crust, but this time we tried Smitten Kitchen’s crust. I actually enjoyed it much more than PW’s or Alton Brown’s version. This was actually the first time I’ve made the dough—that’s usually my husband’s territory. This one was extremely simple and tasted fantastic (although, next time I’m going to include some whole wheat flour and add a little less salt and possibly a pinch or two of garlic powder).
I really enjoyed how easy it was to make. Delivery and frozen pizza is fine and perfect for those nights when you just don’t want to step into your kitchen and cook, but there’s something so rewarding about making your own pizza at home. Plus, I love that I can control the amount of cheese and toppings (as far as I know, pizza chains don’t have turkey pepperoni or green chile as a topping choice).
