What's For Dinner

Rustic pizza is for dinner tonight since the fridge and pantry are nearly bare. This is a great example of using what's on hand for a darn good meal! Using my trusty pizza dough I purchased from Sam's by the case makes this a quick and easy meal.

I stretched my dough ball out to form the rustic size-no perfect pies here! I pre-baked the dough with olive oil, garlic and Italian spices on 450 degrees for about 8-10 minutes. I let cool for a few minutes then added sauteed onions in olive with salt & pepper, sliced roasted red peppers from the jar, mushrooms, hot pepper rings, shredded Swiss cheese, shredded smoked Gouda cheese, basil and drizzled with more olive oil. Baked for approx. 15 minutes. Absolute heaven!


  1. This looks so good...especially for a bare pantry meal :)

  2. Sam's has pizza dough? I haven't seen it here in Knox. I'll have to keep an eye out because with my boy's football season starting, we need quick weeknight meals.

  3. Chris - Yes, Sam's has pizza dough! We have to ask for it in the concession area - believe it might be up on the board when you order. Comes frozen in balls so you just pull out what you need & let it rise.
