Pizza two ways

I just LOVE a birthday, don’t you? We like to celebrate a birthday all week around here. Since Bowen is on the road a lot this week, we had his birthday supper last night. Today’s his actually 28th birthday, 28!!!!

Bowen’s favorite foods are meat and pizza and pizza and meat. He LOVES a meat lovers pizza, me..not so much. I am cheese type of girl if you must know. He also LOVES sugar cookies and ben and jerry’s cookie dough ice cream.  I figured since it was HIS birthday we would have his favorite things.

This supper is super easy and was a bit hit for the b day boy. All you need is a few quality ingredients and little love and care. Leftover pizza makes for a delicious breakfast too. For breakfast, IMG_8961I had cold pizza and Bowen had an Italian frittata with sausage, mozzarella, basil and pepporoni..a.k.a pizza topping frittata.

Ingredients
  1. 1 ball pizza dough, we got ours from Ravenite pizza in downtown Fairhope
  2. 8 oz mozerella
  3. 1 package sweet italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
  4. 1/4 package pepperonis
  5. 1 bunch basil, torn
  6. 1 cup marinara*
  7. 1 cup button mushrooms, thinly sliced
Instructions
  1. heat a small charcoal green or green egg to 400 degrees. Oil a sheet tray (or quarter sheet tray) upside down. Buy pizza dough from your local pizzeria, whole foods or publix. Get your favorite toppings and..GO!
  2. First flour your hands, then stretch and stretch your pizza dough (if your favorite part of pizza is the bubbles in the dough like me), stretching the gluten creates the elasticity that forms the bubbles and chewiness in pizza. Next oil a quarter sheet tray and place pizza down on tray upside down. Place sauce on dough, then sausage, mushrooms, pepperonis and mozzarella. Cook on grill on sheet tray for 7 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted. Top with torn basil and enjoy!
Notes
  1. *I used Scarpetta marina sauce for our pizzas-it is so delicious and made my prep super easy. This sauce is also good for you-gluten free, no sugar added and no preservatives- I will be ordering this from here on!
