The mom came over recently for a lesson in making homemade pizza crust, and I figured that would be the perfect time to test a new pizza recipe I've been mulling over in my head. I love bleu cheese and hot wings, and of course, hot wings dipped in bleu cheese dressing, so I figured I could make a killer pizza with these toppings.
I bought a nice moldy hunk of bleu cheese at Fresh and Easy to crumble over the pizza, and combined that with some shredded mozeralla and mild cheddar cheese. The three cheeses were the perfect combination, with none of them overpowering the other. The only problem we had was the dough took FOREVER to rise, even sitting on top of a hot oven (my usual trick to make it rise quick), which made it harder to stretch out and shape. I chalked it up the fact that we had all the windows open and it was freezing and damp outside after 5 days of torrential rain.
The mom brought my dad over with her-- he wanted to watch football with the husband--so we made a regular pepperoni pizza too, with a homemade tomato sauce. We had a lot of fun cooking while the men watched the Vikings/Saints game, event though, sadly, my boyfriend Farve lost. The mom even washed all the dirty dishes for me!
This pizza is definitely a keeper and I can't wait to make it again.
