Project Pizza

Thanks for all your suggestions to make my own pizza in yesterday's comments. Yes, I have thought about making my own pizza (and I used to buy pizza dough and use that to make pizza a loooong time ago). Honestly, I am not the biggest pizza fan in the world, so I guess that's why I haven't made my own pizza in a long time... But looking at the toddler enjoying his pizza sooo much, I think it's about time I make my own pizza, dough and all!

So, in the next few days, I'll try to figure out how to make a healthy pizza dough. In the meantime, I want to get some ideas for interesting pizza toppings. I'm not a big fan of tomato sauce on pizza, so I'm looking for alternatives. Here is what I have come up with so far:
  • pesto topped with tomato slices, garlic & basil
  • mozzarella, tomatoes & basil - Do I need to put any sauce underneath?
  • thin layer of cheese, grilled chicken & caramelized onions
  • thin layer of tomato sauce, sauteed onions, mushrooms & garlic
Questions: Any thoughts as to whether my toppings will work? What should I add/omit? What are your favorite pizza toppings?

Be well,
