New York Pizza in a D.C. Kitchen

February 18, 2010

A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I decided to make pizza. If there’s one thing I love, it’s pizza! Especially homemade pizza with all my favorite toppings. Typically, we pick-up a pre-made crust (cooked or dough from the fridge section) and just put what we want on top. [As you all know by now, I'm not a baker and messing with fussy pizza dough is not something I'm eager to check off my list.] But, when we got to Whole Foods, pre-made crust cupboard was bare. The only thing I finally did find was frozen pizza dough. I was skeptical. Frozen dough (“fro do”) does not sound appetizing. But it proclaimed to be “NY style” so I went for it.

When I got home, I noticed that the dough needed to be thawed for SIX HOURS and I only had 2 hours tops! Oh no! So, I did the only thing I could think of. I cranked up the oven and set out the dough on top of the stove so that heat from the oven would thaw it quickly and gently. It worked! It only took about an hour.

Then, I hand tossed that bad boy and loaded it up.

The result was delicious! Cooked to perfection.

The crust was nice and thin. That’s a NY style slice!

That looks super tasty! I love do-it-yourself pizza with a premade crust; it makes it such a painless process :)
