Was really craving making homemade pizza after finally getting my hands on a pizza pan with holes was only $11 from Mitre10. My pizza dough is very simple to make with only 3 minutes of kneading time if done with a mixer and 5 minutes if kneaded by hand. The topping I made a simple pepperoni pizza and then changed it up with the second and going for a raspberry, roasted garlic, rosemary and brie pizza with ham of the bone. I kept the base rather thin on both and it cooked perfectly in under 20 minutes!
I was unsure which was my favorite as the both rocked the boat! The raspberry one was inspired by cranberry and brie something sweet with something sharp and creamy the garlic and rosemary just take it to a whole new level. The pepperoni was simple passata sauce, pepperoni salami and cheese with a pinch of dried oregano .
