The tangy crust in this sourdough pizza adds an interesting level of flavor that’s unexpected. It compliments the sweet tomato sauce and delicious toppings perfectly in this Pepperoni, Mushroom, Ham and Onion Sourdough Crust Pizza.
Hello. My name is Christie and I’m addicted to pizza. “Hello, Christie.” Seriously. Is there a 12 step program for pizza addiction? I know S is thinking, “Pizza AGAIN? We order pizza in. Why is she MAKING pizza at home??” *snort*
I’m sorry. Have we met? I’m a Kitchen Hoor. Nice to meet you, hubs. *winkwink*
This…this right here?
This is MY pizza. I’ll share, but this is the epitome of pizza to me. You see, when we were little there was a Dominoes just up the street. I could walk to it. We would order there periodically when I was growing up. I only ever wanted pepperoni. I HATED mushrooms on my pizza. H.A.T.E.D!! We would order a pepperoni for me and sausage with mushrooms for my sister. Well, one day they switched up the order on us and put *GASP* mushrooms on my pepperoni!!! And thus, a new pizza favorite was born.
But that’s not where the story ends. When I crave pizza, it’s pepperoni on the pizza. When I met S, he ordered supremes. Ick. All those VEGGIES on pizza. Oh. Wait. I like veggies on pizza? Since when?? What the…
So now, or usually we go to is a supreme style pizza. But this is still what I crave, with a few new additions. Pepperoni, mushroom, yummy ham, and some red onion for kicks. Sausage? Not really. It’s okay, but too much sausage flavor for me. I can’t taste the other stuff. You know, all the spices in sausage like fennel seed, anise seed, etc. The ham? A perfect compliment to the onions. The shrooms? Compliment the pepperoni.
The sourdough? A lovely compliment to the sweet, crushed tomatoes and tasty cheese. All the flavors in this pizza just compliment each other. And it’s even mighty tasty the next day for lunch. Yup. I had pizza for lunch! I reheated it, too!! The crust did get a bit chewy but it truly was tasty. I can’t wait to see what other concoctions I can make with this starter.
