Foodie Friday: Bruschetta Pizza

I have started menu planning and nearly daily cooking again. With Little Peachy to care for, I have to plan a bit ahead, but so far it has been working out. For example, while she slept in her Pack and Play (in the closet) yesterday afternoon, I browned the meat, made the crust, grated the cheese, chopped the tomatoes, and mixed the bruschetta topping. That way, when it was time to start baking, all I had to do was assemble and throw it in the oven. (Beside the crust sticking to the baking stone, there were no problems.)

This recipe is adapted from the Taste of Home June & July 2009 magazine.

Make one batch of basic dough recipe. (As usual, I substituted 1/2 c. of bread flour for 1/2 c. of whole wheat flour.) Roll dough out for crust.

Other Ingredients:
-1/2 # pork sausage, cooked
-6 oz pepperoni
-2 c. shredded mozzarella
-1 1/2 c. chopped tomatoes
-1 T. basil
-1 T. olive oil
-1 t. garlic salt
-1/8 t. thyme
-1/2 t. balsamic vinegar
-1/8 t. pepper

1. Top crust with sausage, pepperoni, and cheese.
2. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
3. Mix remaining ingredients in small bowl.
4. Top pizza with tomato mixture.
