The one food that everyone associates with fun is the Italian staple of pizza! The flat breaded concoction topped with vegetables, sauce and meat - to the customer's liking - is associated with sporting events, casual meetings and birthday parties. It's impossible to not think of "fun" while eating a pizza. What's not widely known is that these pies are just as much fun to make as they are to eat. Why not make your next get-together a pizza-put-together night?
As for toppings - the sky is the limit. Hamburger, sausage, anchovies, even slices of steak are recommended for meat lovers.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The success of any successful pizza is its bread. Pizza with delicious toppings with flat, uninspired bread whereas pizza with fluffy, delicious seasoned bread is the one that folks always remember. Kneading the dough, and tossing it high in the air in the manner of old-fashioned pizza parlors of yore adds to the fun. Health conscious consumers may want to opt for non-gluten dough. There are countless food options when making a pizza pie.
Once the round dough is completed, it's time to work on toppings. The number one topping is of course, cheese. All different assortments of cheese can be used: American, Swiss, provolone. This is of course, unless someone in your pizza party is lactose intolerant. A great substitute for cheese is a vegan option: Take walnuts, pulverize them into a fine powder and sprinkle in some sea salt. Wait until the pizza and all its toppings are cooked, and then sprinkle this over the completed dish. It tastes exactly like parmesan cheese, without any of the milk products!
Right after cheese, the most popular topping is pepperoni, round circles of meaty delight! This topping often comes pre-sliced and is available at most markets. Place the slices liberally around the face of the pizza - you may even add a touch of whimsy by making a smiling face out of all the dots!
As for other toppings - the sky is the limit. Hamburger, sausage, anchovies, even slices of steak are recommended for meat lovers. Gaining in popularity is the "vegetarian" pizza, where the toppings are vegetables fruits and nuts.
One of the most surprising and delicious toppings this reviewer has found is cashew nuts. Chock full of chewy goodness, cashews are a welcome and unexpected taste treat on the top of any pizza.
