Some notes on Pizza

Wednesday night is Pizza night in the Treanor household. We used to Papa Murphy's it up every week but since we're trying to be healthier, I've started making homemade pizza. This week I decided to take things to an even higher level...healthy homemade pizza.

First of all, healthy pizza is a dumb idea.

I found a whole wheat pizza dough recipe...which didn't turn out like something you want to eat while enjoying the craziness of Phillip on Survivor.

Yes, I did take this picture this morning after the dough sat out all night. However, the photograph makes it especially unappetizing yeah?
We tried rolling it out but Troy Boy smased his finger under the rolling pin (not a fun thing, I'm sure) and then the thing wouldn't get bigger than 6 inches without ripping so we gave up.

Luckily, we had some left over whole wheat pitas from an earlier meal (which is wonderful and you should get the recipe from me because it will change your life). So we put on some ingredients and made ourselves some "healthy" pita pizzas. Now I'm not really sure where we went wrong from here. 

We cooked them on our pizza stone. But I'm thinking it was just the type of cheese we used. You see, the healthy recipe wanted healthy cheese. But, healthy cheese does not a pizza make. It was the weirdest thing I have ever seen. Lets just say I felt like a dog eating peanut butter when I ate this pizza.  I took a picture with my phone but I'm not sure it accurately portrays the oddness of this cheese. 

In the end, I ended up just peeling off the cheese and eatting a pita with sauce...that should tell you how crazy this cheese was because I am not one to deny the cheese. 

Needless to say, there was a quick In n Out run last night. 

So lesson learned: Don't even bother with healthy pizza. Just splurge one night a week and go for the real thing.
