The Homemade Margherita Pizza

No, the Thrifty Sifter hasn't blogged in some time. I'm a bit upset with her over that since she has been baking up a storm the entire time. It's now up to me to document some awesome baking.

We decided to make our own margherita pizza with mushrooms and it was fan-fucking-tastic. The Thrifty Sifter and I took some classes at the Culinary Institute of America a couple of months ago. While I was learning how not to flay my own thumbs, she was learning artisinal baking, including pizza.

Since then Thrifty Sifter acquired a pizza stone and we decided to make use of it tonight. In forty minutes with pizza dough, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, mixed fresh mushrooms, and a tomato sauce of canned plum tomatoes mixed with onion, garlic, salt, and pepper, you really can't go wrong.

So easy and simple (even quick), but SO tasty. We still need some practice at making it completely circular.
