    I think pizza and ice cream is my all time fave meal combo. Not very healthy living blogger, huh? Oh well. It fits into balance so that’s healthy! Yours looks great.

      Perhaps pizza and ice cream aren’t the best choices but eating them in moderation works for me! The pizza was good too.

    Good Looking Pizza!

    I’ve purchased doughs from Trader Joes and put them in the freezer, the trick to thawing it is take it out and leave it in the fridge for a day, and then take out and leave it at room temp for an hour or more before using it, so it can rise a bit. You can even take it out of the plastic bag (that I am guessing you froze it in) put it in a bowl in a ball, oil it up and just cover the top with plastic wrap, as you defrost it and when it sits on the counter. That way it has room to rise.

    Also, I’ve learned that the higher the temp, the better. We cook ours at 450 degrees, and I like my cheese to get a little brown and bubbly!

    I love pineapple on my pizza – My favorite is pepperoni and pineapple! Usually, I have little safeway (or dole) cups of pineapple on hand, which I put on my pizza after it comes out of the oven. Ryan completely rejects fruit on pizza. I think it was something I picked up in grade school, it seemed that pizza day was also pineapple fruit cup day – and don’t forget the ranch for dipping!

    Our day was wonderful – I’ll be writing about it later – it was a Date Day – that I didn’t want to end!

      We did not take the frozen dough out soon enough. I’m sure you are right. I think Michael defrosted it a bit in the microwave and then it sat on the counter for awhile. I’ve never tried ranch dressing with pizza! Interesting….

    I love pineapple and ham pizza (no onions for me). Alton Brown cooks his pizza hot and fast, which makes for a crisper crust rather than a bready crust -although I enjoy either style!

    We had a very good and busy weekend here. The best part was seeing some owls up close at a presentation. Very cool.

      I will try Alton Brown’s recipe next time.

      There’s a raptor park somewhere here in Portland. I’ve never been though. I look at the raptor cam once in awhile. Birds are amazing.

    I’m sorry you aren’t feeling good. I saw your tweet the other day about the costcohondritis and I honestly thought you made up a term that meant something along the lines of a fear of spending too much money at Costco. Ha! You can see where my mind was.

    By the way, if you have a grill you should definitely try grilling pizza dough. This is by far my favorite way to make pizza. Usually you are doing more of a thin type version though.
