Favorite Night of The WeekA few weeks ago I posted a photo on Instagram of me holding up pizzas and my inbox flooded with questions. I had to laugh! I love that y’all are just as invested in pizza night as we are, so I immediately put it on my schedule to write a post about it.
Ann Taylor Dress (old, similar here) // Jack Rogers Sandals // Tuckernuck Earrings (old, similar here) // Juliska Plates // Juliska Glasses // Caitlin Wilson Napkins // Joss & Main Furninture & Garden Stools // Pottery Barn PillowsWe started making our own pizza when I found out I could no longer eat dairy (I get violently ill). Going out for pizza was one of our favorite things to do so we had to come up with a workaround, and that’s when we started making them at home. After about a year we have it down to an actual science, so I’m excited to share it with you today!
So, are you ready?!
What you Need:Crust: We love Udi’s frozen crust. It’s gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and delicious! We also love Whole Food’s 365 beet and cauliflower crust as well, so you have options. If you don’t have any dietary restrictions, well then the world is your oyster! Sauce: I’ve tried all the sauces out and Rao’s Pizza Sauce is by far my favorite. Plus, it’s free of all the bad stuff most sauces have, so I’d definitely go for that one. Cheese: When it comes to dairy-free cheese I have found that Diaya is the best. They have a mozzarella version that tastes great! And since Ryan isn’t dairy free I always pick up the fresh real Mozzarella pearls for him. Toppings: This is where you can go crazy! Our favorites are chicken, turkey pepperoni, spinach, basil, garlic, olives, tomatoes… but you do you!
How To Grill:Now that your pizzas are ready to be cooked you have two options, you can either place them in the oven (if you do so just follow the crusts instructions) or you can grill them! Grilling HANDS DOWN tastes better, so if you have a grill I’d encourage you to fire that thing up! But to be completely honest, I know nothing about a grill, so this is where Ryan comes in…. I’ll let him tell you what to do!
Pre-heat the grill until the temperature reaches 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure the temperature knobs are set to medium. Lay the pizzas directly on the grates and close the lid. Grill for 5-6 minutes, checking on them half way through. Once the time is up, you’ll know they’re done if the edges are starting to darken. Burnt pizza is no fun, so play it by ear the first time in case your grill cooks differently from ours! Enjoy! -RyanYou’ll have to let me know if you end up making pizzas this weekend and how it went! I hope these they will become a weekend tradition in your home just like they have in ours! Happy weekend, friends!
