As I've mentioned numerous times, in addition to trying to lose weight, Dave and I are trying to spend less money eating.  Thus, I've been making a real effort in trying to determine what makes the food that we eat at restaurants so appealing, and then I try to replicate that at home.  With a few things, I've been fairly successful and making pizza for Dave is one of those things.


Dave prefers a white pizza, and recipe is simple.

- Your favorite pizza crust (we use Mama Mia's brand, no hydrogenated oils)
- Block mozzarella cheese, freshly shredded (this is KEY!)
- Olive oil
- Garlic powder (or fresh garlic if you have it!)
- Oregano
- Your favorite toppings (Dave likes plum tomatos, but I threw some pepperoni on the pizza above for his brother)

Basically all you need to do is shred the mozzarella and cut the tomatoes very thinly (or whatever toppings you choose).  Then, pour olive oil onto the crust and spread using a basting brush so that there is a thin layer covering the entire enter.  Cover with the cheese, sprinkle the oregano on, add the tomatoes and other other toppings and cook at 450 degrees for about 12 minutes.

 Look at that face! He LOVES it!

Mmmm! That looks really good! I love this kind of pizza. Did you see the pizza recipe I posted just the other day? It's real similar and my sister-in-law said it's the olive garden recipe. (I think.)
