I watched the episode of Cook’s Country where they made this pizza. It seemed interesting because it was made in a baking sheet (no pizza stone mentioned), I didn’t need to make or buy a sauce, and the cheese goes on first, before the tomatoes. Thennnnn I made the mistake of not saving the recipe for later. Thankfully, I found it on a blog so that I could make it, too! I am not sure what Rebecca changed from the original since I don’t have the original, but I liked how this turned out. I’ve been making lots of pizza things because the Fudgelet finally likes it, and it is less messy than some other food. At least, homemade pizza tends to be less messy.
I’m feeling in the mood for pie, I guess. First ham and cheese pie, and now a pizza pie…except this dish is not a normal pizza, so not a pie at all. Alas. Maybe next week I will share a chocolate pie I’ve been holding onto for awhile now.
I had never made ciabatta before this, and it is so easy! There was a small snafu with the dough being too runny, but adding a bit of extra flour worked just fine. So, I consider this practically fool-proof. Plus, there is the added bonus of being able to make it ahead, making a pizza night even easier! You could totally make this bread and then turn it into pizza later that night, or the next day. The garlic/butter mixture will definitely keep the bread soft and pillowy.
