weeknight pizza with tj's crust.

i rarely (never) post food that i made that same dayyy, but i must. i am just really jazzed about this pizza!

i took these pics on my phone btdubs.  i was pretty much jumping for joy when i saw the cheese bubbling all golden in the oven.  

here it is. 

with the ready-to-eat trader joe's garlic and herb pizza dough.  it's so good.  definitely get the garlic herb and not the plain.  because i said so.

in the oven, put:

tj's crust (with a little olive oil)! tomato sauce! pepperoni! mozzarella! pickled red onion! red bell peppers!

when it comes out of the oven, put:

freshly crumbled goat cheese! balsamic reduction! and arugula!

we didn't have any arugula! but if we did, we'd put it on top!

to reduce balsamic vinegar

, just bring x amount of balsamic vinegar to a boil, then let it simmer for about 20-25 minutes on low.  it should thicken and the volume of the liquid will be cut pretty much in half.  it'll look like a syrup. 

don't put your nose too close to the pan...you'll singe all your nose hairs.  seriously, open the window.

bake the pizza at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes, or until crust is golden and cheese is bubbly and browned and scrumptious-looking.

top with goat cheese, balsamic reduction, & greens, like arugula.

scarf it down like i did!

whoa baby.

happy thursday!
