Return of the Lazy Sunday

The start

Like I said earlier, pizza is all about the dough. Of course here are a few ideas for what to top it with. Above is pesto, fresh tomato, basil and mozzarella.

Caramelized onion, rosemary and goat cheese, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with Romano

Black olive, anchovy, basil and mozzarella

The leftover topping free for all

  2. ChgoJohn says:

    You are so right about the crust. Hope you have/had a safe trip home.

  3. Jenny liu says:

    I love pizza! but why the dough always undercooked when the topping has already cook well even born. (400 Fahrenheit degree) 😦

  4. IΒ΄ll take a slice of each to go please. Oh, and a couple of beers. Thanks πŸ™‚

  5. rsmacaalay says:

    I guess with pizza its hard to go wrong specially if you master the dough. Love the flavours you prensented

  6. Charles says:

    Totally agree on the crust – a good (or bad) crust can totally make or break the pizza. I still didn’t get round to using my pizza stone yet. Now that I have a functioning oven once more there’s no reason not to! Roll on the pizzas I say πŸ™‚ Beautiful pizzas Greg!

  7. This will be great for Friday – Sunday night home.

  8. easybaked says:

    Yum! These look great! I haven’t made pizza in forever- thanks for the inspiration πŸ™‚

  9. You make it hard to ever want to eat store bought pizza again!

  10. Making Storm Pizzas for dinner tonight…yours look yummy!
    Drive safe, and keep WELL west of this monster…

  11. Lea Ann says:

    I’ll take a slice of that goat cheese, rosemary and carmelized onion please.

  12. jenlenew says:

    love the look of that caramelized onion pizza!

  13. Eva Taylor says:

    Very appealing pizzas! The crust looks delicious!

  14. SimpleP says:

    Holy cow those look good!

  15. Judy says:

    I could eat pizza every day, love it. It is the one thing I miss most since we don’t eat bread like we used to. When we do make the exception, these are exactly the kind of pizza we go for–yum!

  16. I would love the 3rd pizza please!! Anchovies on mine all day long πŸ˜‰

  17. Kristy says:

    I’m digging lazy Sunday! Good stuff. Too bad I filled up on pizza already this weekend. Then again, I never really fill up on pizza. Hope you’re enjoying your trip!

  18. JamieAnne says:

    This looks fantastic! Yum!

  19. nrhatch says:

    Yes, please!!!! They look scrumptious!

  20. I love a well made pizza dough. But I think a pizza is all about the sauce you use and the toppings as well. everything must go hand in hand. You do make a mean dough.. I would eat that bread lol.

  21. ceciliag says:

    A perfect sunday late lunch, i am with the pesto and mozz of course! YUM. I have all of that in my fridge and a fresh batch of pesto in the blender, so now i am off to look at your dough recipe! Thank you for sorting out my sunday afternoon! c

  22. Sissi says:

    You call it a lazy Sunday? Pizza is the last dish I would make if I feel lazy πŸ™‚ Great toppings ideas! Onion, rosemary and goat cheese sounds particularly appealing! I am also a big fan of anchovies on my pizza!

  23. Ginger says:

    Pizza is my favorite food ever! I love the onion, rosemary and goat cheese one, yummy!!

  24. joshuafagans says:

    Some nice looking topping combos!

  25. Ooo… I’ll have a leftover toppings free for all thanks! These look so mouth watering, love the use of goats cheese.

  26. I was going to have brisket tonight for dinner and now I feel the need to eat pizza…damn you! What…perhaps brisket on the pizza. πŸ™‚

  27. Kelly says:

    Your toppings look fantastic, I would never be able to choose (ok, if I *had* to pick one, I would go with Caramelized onion, rosemary and goat cheese). Delish!

  28. Lazy Sunday pizza party! Great idea!

  29. These look absolutely divine! Can I have one now? Please?

  30. Wow, you do a much better job with pizza than I do! At my house I just pick up frozen plain cheese pizzas and add my toppings of choice. It’s fast, but I bet your crust is much tastier.

  31. A_Boleyn says:

    I’ve made pizza from scratch for years on cheap thin black baking sheets and they’ve always been terrific. I don’t know what I’d get if I actually used a pizza stone. Maybe for my 60th birthday … I’ll invest in one. πŸ™‚

    I’ve never tried goat cheese but have heard of people using it for ages. What makes it so special?

  32. A_Boleyn says:

    I’m really tempted to do a batch of caramelized onions and top with rosemary and goat cheese as in your picture. Do you add the goat cheese after baking or before as it doesn’t seem to have browned/melted much?

  33. I like your idea of a lazy Sunday!

  34. We don’t have pizza often but thoroughly enjoy it when we do – great topping choices.
    Have a happy week.
    πŸ™‚ Mandy

  35. niasunset says:

    Could I have one for me too, please πŸ™‚ Thank you dear Rufus, made me hungry now… with my love, nia

  36. I am coming to your house next Sunday! These look amazing.

  37. spicegirlfla says:

    Carmelized onion, rosemary and goat cheese is my pick!! I could eat pizza any day! I think it’s the perfect meal, thin crust is my favorite.

  38. imakeeper says:

    Ohhh I like this idea of a lazy sunday involving pizzas and lots of melted cheese. I also thought having a ritual brunch (complete with mimosas) as the way to go… but I might be wrong after seeing these little doughy pies of tastiness.

  39. A_Boleyn says:

    I wondered because it looked like there was rosemary sprinkled on top of the goat cheese as a garnish and I didn’t know if you had also added some rosemary underneath the caramelized onions along with the romano cheese.

  40. Love love love pizza. Sounds awesome!
    And lazy Sunday? Is there any other kind of Sunday?

  41. ....RaeDi says:

    Thanks for the tip of cooking the dough a little before toppings, why didn’t I think of that….RaeDi

  42. nancyc says:

    All those pizzas look great!

  43. bakingdevils says:

    I love pizzas…It is all about the dough…Since I am not a big fan of cheese, for me it as to be gorgeous bases with delicious sauce and toppings..yours look so appetising…It’s breakfast time here and I could do with a pizza right now πŸ™‚


  44. I love pizzas, too, and the more cheese the better. This looks wonderful and I could eat it right this minute.
