Friday Night Pizza- Only It's Sunday!






Friday night, did not feel like cooking.. went to a great fry food place and picked up a chicken and fish combo! Fish was so good, I went back Saturday and got two fish sandwiches to go!
Sunday, promises were to be kept, so I made what we call around here a "Dad" pizza! That means home made yeast risen crust, flavored with garlic, and red pepper! It means home made sauce, tomato paste, olive oil, garlic, onion, red pepper, oregano, basil, fennel seeds, salt, and red wine vinegar.. It means hand ground Parmesan and Romano cheese.., It means Italian seasoned sausage, pepperoni, and Canadian bacon as meats.. It means covered with Mozzarella cheese, shredded.. 450F for 12 minutes, set for 5 more minutes.. Well, look at the photos!

Looks fantastic!

We're do pizza every Friday in my house (both my boys love it).

BlueV- a good crust, and a killer sauce- and any toppings you want!
K- Friday is usually our night too, but got delayed by taste buds!

ohmy! This looks wonderful. I've only made homemade pizza once. It turned out pretty good, I need to try it again. Delicious BD!

Marjie said...

If my boys saw this picture, they'd be on their way to your house.

Chris said...

Highlander- It's a tradition around here! Son got double portion, his girlfriend is on her way to get her share!
Marjie- I'd kill to have a mob of sons and their friends here again- I miss that more than words could tell..now ya got me all misty-eyed and what all...sniff..
Chris- It's the bomb, when it's home-made, with care and love for the ones you make it for..

Now, I don't have to tell you how much I like pizza!

buffalodick said...

All Americans love pizza! I think it's in the Constitution! Well.. It should be..

Pam said...

I want your pizza sauce recipe. Hand it over.

Beth said...

Pizza looks great!

Uncle Buff...you are such a wise man. I am in turmoil right now...and you picked up on that. so wise you are. choose wisely...thats my trouble right now.....what is wise?

Just telling it like it is said...

You always know my weaknesses! I love Pizza!!!

Martha (Menagerie) said...

Pizza on Fridays here too. Doesn't matter if it's on Sunday instead as long as it happens at some point! Yours sure looks great! I'll be right over and I'll bring the beer :-)

doggybloggy said...

meat lovers delight - this is one kick ass pie - I am going to start making them in a pan it seems so much easier than the hand tossed version -

Char said...

That's one good looking pizza there. What's your recipe for the crust?

Scarlet said...

Photo #3 tells me you didn't brown the crust first before adding the sauce and other ingredients. Is that how you normally do it??

The last pic looks delicious!! Thanks for sharing them all. Wish you'd shared the pizza instead. ;)

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Could you pretty please come over and make us a "Dad" pizza? I'll supply the wine... ;)

G-Man said...

2 of those to go please......

The Peach Tart said...

That pizza looks amazing

Pam- The crust is basically a recipe from Giada D., but I add garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and dried basil and oregano to the dough. The sauce is tomato paste, water, red wine vinegar, fennel seeds, garlic, onion powder,Italian seasonings, a dash of brown sugar- simmered for an hour. Topping and cheeses are up to you!
Beth- Dumb people repeat mistakes. Smart people make them, but don't repeat them. Wise people learn from other's mistakes, and avoid quite a few of them all together..
Darngirl- Pizza, Cheeseburgers, and Tacos are three of the main food groups!
Martha- Italians invented it, but we eat more of it than they do!
DogB- It is easier, but it will remind you more of Chicago style..
Char- See my reply to Pam above yours..
Scarlet- I never never pre-baked a crust in my life..Load toppings quickly, and bake at 450F+ to avoid soggy!

buffalodick said...

Stacy- Love to make them for a crowd!
G-man- Two? They are pretty big, you know..

buffalodick said...

Peach- Home-made pizza is an ancient tradition around here!

MarmiteToasty said...

Brian- When my kids were living here, Friday nite was delivery pizza or a "Dad's"..

Jen said...

Darn! Where was I on Sunday? Is there any left?

Mona said...

Akelamalu said...

Just telling it like it is said...

Mine too...I knew we had something telepathically that way like we were twins at birth!;)

Angela in Europe said...

Oh yum, yum. Looks so much better than the stuff you get out!

Darngirl- Every American feels like this!
Angela- I can only imagine a frog version of Pizza!

Chef E said...

As I have said before- Lucky damn family!

buffalodick said...

ChefE- Living with me is not always "Bananas in Eden"! In the old movie "Popeye" , with Robin Williams, Bluto had a great song with Popeye "It's not easy being me".. I say that a lot!

Melody said...

You are cruel. That looks wonderful!

UBERMOUTH said...

You do know why your wife married you,don't you? :)
Any other [male] cooks in your family?

buffalodick said...

Melody- My cooking is all about caring for others.. and bragging!
Uber- She told me she was knocked up... and she lied.. :) Grew on me like fungus, as it were...

TavoLini said...

I also did a pizza :) Of course, I do a pizza pretty much every week.

Yumm--looks like there's enough there to share--I'll take a slice or two!

buffalodick said...

Tavolini- You need intervention.. your pizza addiction has gone beyond control! :) Take it from a guy who is addicted to nineteen things, and getting worse!

pinknest said...

Meaty pizza. Of course.
