When trying to eat “healthy”, (which I say is impossible in summer!), it is difficult to find different recipes. Derek found this pizza recipe that he asked one of his colleagues for and it’s called “No Dough Pizza”.
Really, no dough? It can’t taste good. I love pizza. The fat, the stuffed crust, the toppings galore, the all-you-can-eat cheese are all on my list. I was very interested to see what it would taste like and how it would look without dough. So we bought the ingredients and made them. I was surprised at how easy, cheap and quick this recipe is. I thought it would take some time to make a kind of crust to assemble the pizza. Luckily, it was made in no time and baked in the oven. We decided to play it safe and use pepperoni for the topping, with extra cheese!
At first it was fragile, so we baked it longer in the oven and made sure to give it enough time to cool. This helped us a lot because the pizza hardened and wasn’t as thin. The taste was surprisingly very good. It wasn’t dry at all and the cream cheese made it taste great. I was pleased with the way it went. It satisfies the craving for pizza and it’s so much healthier than ordering!
