Better than Pizzeria Pizza

Better than Pizzeria Pizza

I'm not a huge fan of Chicago-style pizza, where the crust plays center stage and the ingredients are an afterthought. Maybe it's having spent a few years in New York eating thin-crusted pies that you fold over and eat with your mouth turned so that the fresh mozzarella doesn't drip off onto your plate. Seems like the crust should be somewhere in between that wafer-like crust that sometimes gets a little too dry and the loaf-style pies that leave you feeling stuffed after just one bite. This recipe finds that happy medium – plus it's so easy to make.

In my family, each person gets to fashion a pie. My oldest child loads hers with meat, while my youngest has lately decided she prefers Hawaiian style. It's become a favorite meal at our house, even if it's more work than picking up a couple Hot-n-Readys from Little Caesars around the corner. With any extra dough, we melt butter and brush it across the dough and sprinkle the leftover cheese on it for breadsticks. So if you've never attempted pizza at home, what are you waiting for? And if you've tried making pizza in the past but have had lackluster results, give this a try. It's good to the last crumb – and slice!

Hope Drogmiller and Hopes Daddy look forward to trying this wonderful recipe. We love Metro Parent and were sure this recipe is one of the best. But until you try this great at home recipe Hope and I would like to share some of our pizza places that we enjoy! We are a pizza eating family, once a week at least, we love this marvel of dough, sauce and toppings. Here is our list of FOUR THUMBS UP pizza parlours/restaurants we enjoy and give four thumbs up for sure! Dont forget to let them know Hope and Hopes daddy say their pizzas some of the best in Michigan.

In no particular order:
Alex's Pizza (Downtown Wixom, super friendly, great hand tossed pizza,
round or square, square is our favorite. Drinks from pop
to wine. Sit down, big screen t.v. Family Friendly!)
Corsi's (Livonia on 7 mile between Middlebelt and Inkster, another
family owned family friendly place to eat. Hand tossed,square

Pizza but everyone is simply simple and nice. We tip 22% here!)
Bellacino's (downtown Farmington on grand river, Keith and crew make a
great $5.00 Pizza here and you can dine in and also buy a
two liters of pop in their spacious dinning area and outside
table sitting when weather permits. Forget the other $5.00
pizza's, this is worth the drive to downtown Farmington)
Sam's Club (Novi, in a hurry, this pizza can be ordered in many
different toppings, all round pizza, simple cash and carry
but good)
