Butternut Squash, Caramelized Onion, and Gorgonzola Pizza

This is the first time I've ever made pizza from scratch. I know it's hard to believe with the amount of cooking I do but I was always afraid of the pizza dough. I've heard it can be quiet temperamental.
I saw this amazing recipe on the blog Closet Cooking and just had to try it out. 
So, it was a bit of a long process to make but it turned out very well and wasn't that difficult. I will say that pizza dough is very different than pie dough which I am very familiar with. When your stretching out your pizza dough if you tear a hole in it you can't just fold it onto itself and fix your blunder. If you make a hole, it's there for good! Luckily this recipe made enough for 3 pizzas so I just threw the one out that I ruined and still had plenty for 2 medium sized pizzas. 
I think I will try this dough recipe again but with different toppings. I did L*O*V*E this combo though of caramelized onion and Gorgonzola.

I have been craving pizza lately so this is just not FAIR!! It looks so good. I will have to try it, but it's the pizza crust that is the hardest part. I also love olives, feta cheese, spinach, and tomatoes on my pizza. Yum! Yum!

Well done - that looks tasty. I've just wrapped up one of D's Christmas presents, which is a pizza cookbook. I blogged about it here http://www.outsideofthebox.com.au/2010/10/non-alcoholic-30th-birthday-present.html.

I'm looking forward to lots of yummy homemade pizza in 2011 - I have to add this one to the list.

Try a whole wheat recipe! The trick to have a soft wheat dough is the water temp, and how much you knead it. I have arthritis, so it's difficult for me to knead for a long time. I love your topping choices. Bell peppers and mushroom with home-made tomato sauce is awesome as well ^_^

Amy said...

My mouth is WATERING. What a delicious pizza!

You have such a beautiful blog and an even more beautiful family. Blessings to you. :)

Cara said...

Erin said...

Oh my goodness...I just printed out the recipe. I host Pizza Night every Thursday and this will be made as soon as possible. I love how I can sneak in some veggies for my little guys too :-)

Tracey M. said...

WOW this pizza looks YUM! I would never have dreamed up these ingredients. They sound incredible though. Hats off to you for making your own dough! The closest I might come would probably be Pillsbury crescent dough which I've used to make homemade pizza before. Surely not even remotely close! I love the recipes you have on your blog. And that they're alphabetized!
