On Thursday, I returned home after a long day of visiting and speaking to small businesses across the state. Jody was out for dinner and I was confronted with a refrigerator full of random groceries. So I decided to take out the pizza dough I had in the fridge and make some leftover pizza.
The dried meat cut in half from the last dinner party was a perfect topping. Sliced pepperoni, sopressata and warm capicola ready to cook. I rolled out the dough in a frying pan with a little avocado oil and preheated the oven to 475 degrees.
After I heated the oven and the dough was at room temperature, I added salt, pepper, oregano, and chilli to the dough.
In addition, I ate meat, American cheese, provolone cheese, cheddar cheese, etc. in a bag that was left in the refrigerator.
I have half an onion left over. Once the oven is preheated, add the sliced onions to the dough.
After 4 minutes, take out half cooked, spread crushed garlic, top with cheese crumbs/slices, and top with meat.
Remove from the oven for another 4 minutes at a low temperature of 400 degrees to prevent burning. Use a metal spatula at the halfway point to make sure the dough is not sticking to the baking sheet.
Let it sit for 5 minutes, then cut with a pizza cutter or scissors. Enjoy with beer, bourbon, water, and more.

I finally made the decision to invest in a wood fired pizza oven.
