Cheating at pizza



By guest writer Susanne Koch

Having one of those days? Busy at the office, slow traffic, long lines at the supermarket... You just don't feel like cooking. I often dial a pizza place and ask for a pizza brought to my door. It's very convenient, but it's expensive and often not quite as good as I had hoped for.

Today I made my own 'home made' pizza in 5 minutes (15 if you include the cooking time). I got to choose my sauce, cheese and topping and I didn't have to wait for the pizza boy. Here's how:

My supermarket now has ready made rolled pizza dough. All I had to do was unroll it. I was a sceptic until I tasted it, but the result was really good.

For my sauce I chose a pasta sauce with gorgonzola, which gave my pizza a nice, sharp taste. Then I simply added some slices of mozzarella and some good quality prosciutto. This way I have control of the quality of the ingredients and my pizza was tastier, healthier and less expensive than what I get from the pizza boy.

Are you wondering what to cook today?
