Whenever I buy a frozen pizza, I usually buy a Dr. Oetker Ristorante Pizza Mozzarella.
Today I decided to finally perform the experiment I have been thinking of for some months. The making of my own pizza mozzarella. I went to my local gourmet store and bought a fresh mozzarella cheese and some high quality pesto.
In order to make a good tomato sauce for this pizza, I used extra virgin olive oil, oregano, garlic, onion, salt, pepper and canned tomatoes. I only used half the sauce and I’m thinking of freezing the rest. Could come in handy.
I put the sauce on the dough, then I put about half of the pesto in lumps on the pizza and covered it in regular cheese (I used a mixture of norvegia and jarlsberg). Then I cut the mozzarella in pieces and spread it on the pizza and let it bake for as long as it takes.
The result: Much better than a frozen pizza! The next time I’m using less mozzarella and pesto but a little more salt.
