Notes

*I like Essential Bakery's frozen pizza dough. To prepare I cook on a pizza stone until bottom is lightly browned. Remove from oven, flip the pizza and top the cooked side. Return pizza to oven to crisp the (now) bottom of the pizza and cook the toppings.
**I love using peppers, zuchinni, or eggpant; To grill, cut into uniform slices, spray with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and grill until vegetables are lightly cooked and black grill marks are formed.
