My Favourite Pizzas
We make pizza, at least once a week, with lots of meaty toppings. On this pizza day, my son was visiting and he’s vegetarian, so we settled for pineapple, cheese and capsicum. We really enjoyed it so I wanted to post it and be able to find It, again. Have a lovely week!
Transfer into the oven and bake 8-10 minutes on a pizza stone, until crisp and bubbly
Slice and enjoy.

We love homemade pizza night! Pineapple is one topping we haven’t done yet, something to consider.
You should definitely try pineapple. it’s great!
Reminds me of a pizza I had once but they added ham and it was delicious! Love pizza and love all kinds of good toppings!
I can imagine ham on pizza, must have tasted excellent!
It’s interesting to see that pizza recipe, years ago….or so it seems, one of my sons was the pizza maker at home and this was his favourite kind to make. Sometimes he’d put ham on, sometimes not. It was good either way. Pizza is not my go to meal, but another son has an outdoor bread oven and pizza on it is fabulous! We are warned of a rainy night with a wind warning, lit one candle In readiness in case the power goes out. A little breeze so far but nothing out of the ordinary. Fall has definitely landed here, how about your part of the country Liz?
Our part of the country is good. It was kinda warm today. Even now my French doors are open. I’m watching news about Hurricane Mathew, in Haiti and East Coast of Florida.
One day I must build myself a bread oven. I think it makes the best pizza ever. I am falling asleep. Talk to you tomorrow. Have a lovely evening.
Having just recently left that area of Florida, I’m thankful I don’t live there! It sounds like Haiti really got hammered again. Poor souls. We should all count our blessings to live where we do. On the Viennese Striezel, it sounds very aromatic, I’ve not heard of it before! I want to come live at your house and be your taste tester! Cheers Liz! Package is in the mail!
Thank God you left before the horrible storm. I really sympathize with the residents of Haiti. It seems every catastrophe is always striking. The bread was really nice but I had to eat most of it on my own. You’re are welcome to be my taste tester. I’ll let you know when the package arrives. Thank you so much for sending it. Have a great week!
