Is it just me or do you think that when you make homemade cheese pizza it just doesn’t taste the same as the pizza joints? If you agree I have some GREAT news!! I think I have finally found the perfect homemade cheese pizza cheese blend! I am stoked!
I made pizza the other night and decided to put on a whole buncha different cheeses and surprisingly it yielded amazing results!!
I started out by making my all time favorite, go to pizza dough recipe. For sauce I used Classico Vodka Spaghetti Sauce (for some reason I love that sauce!) Then for the kid’s and my pizza I loaded it with shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese and then topped it with Cotija cheese, a mexican Parmesan cheese. I really think the Cotija was the perfect addition. Oh my gosh yummy!!!
For Lover Boy’s pizza I browned some smoked deer sausage and put on top of the cheese. I had no clue that I used the smoked sausage (in fact, I didn’t even know we had different types of sausage). As I was making it he nicely complained and said I used the wrong stuff and that it probably wouldn’t taste good…wrong! He was blown away by how good it tasted! (phew!) He said that it tasted just like a Mellow Mushroom pizza, my most favorite pizza other than Ginos back in Chicago! Score!!!
Such a great thing when everyone loves dinner!! We will totally be having this again and again and again!! 🙂
