Pizza #18: Louisiana

As we’re getting ready for some more pizza action tomorrow, I realized I never told you all about our Louisiana Pizza from last week.  So please, let me tell you now!

It. Was. Delicious.2013-04-05 18.25.05Tommy and I both voted this Muffuletta Pizza as our number one so far.  Any other ‘top pizzas’ have now been replaced.  Boom!

Not only is it filled with a delicious olive salad, two types of meat, and lots of cheese, it also is double crusted.  With even more cheese on top.  Talk about YUM!2013-04-05 18.06.51My dear sister-in-law took charge of the olive salad, and totally rocked it, I might add! I got the crust rollin’, and Tommy whipped up a batch of his sauce.

There was so much flavor bursting out the seams-literally.  And the top crust, drizzled in olive oil and covered with cheese and crushed red pepper, was so unbelievably crispy and wonderful.2013-04-05 18.09.01I’d say we all made a pretty good team, and were all 100% satisfied with the results.  I don’t doubt that this pizza will be made again someday in the not-to0-far future.  And for your sake, I hope it’s in your near future as well!!2013-04-05 18.25.05
