Homemade-ish Pizza!!

Who on earth would ever buy a frozen pre-made pizza when making one yourself is so damn easy?!  Check out an easy way to "cheat" at making your own big, badass, homemade pie!

Well, look who it is!! Chicago Bob is in town for the weekend hanging out!
Guess what, Bob?!  You get to be a special guest cook on the blog this week! 

Haha, I can tell you're excited!

Now, how 'bout you yank all the pepperoni off of that pie for me?! :-)

Zoey says "Wait, what?! Pizza?!?  I'm in!"

Fine work there, Baaab!

Now we've got a blank canvas to work with, so to speak!
As you can see, I've used a Sam's Club take-n-bake pizza to cheat a bit so that I wouldn't have to make the dough myself!

I just so happened to have a lb of Italian sausage on-hand!

We're also gonna need some cheese!  I had Parmesan and a mozz/asiago/romano blend!

Hack up the 'roni in preparation for frying it up!

Check these out!  I grew them myself!

This is some of the first of what should be a TON of produce from my garden!

Good job chopping it up, Bob!

Into a pan w/ a bit of butter and some garlic & herb seasoning!

Give 'em just a few minutes & try to yank them off the heat before they get soft bec they will finish cooking in the oven!

Time to fry up that pepperoni!
I do this so that I can squeeze out most of the oil before I toss it on the pizza!

Time to assemble this work of art!

Lookin' good, huh?

Time to cheese it!

Mmm.... cheeeese!

Now, if only I could find some incredible chick to join me on nights like these...

OMG, uncut pizza is soooo sexy!

I like my pie toasty!  Trust me, this thing is so thick that there is still loads of ooey-gooey melted mozz in there! 

Whack it up and then give it a minute to cool down while you go grab another brewski!

Oh man!  Someone's excited!

At this point, it was time for Bob & I to chow down!
I had a lot of fun hangin' out w/ him this weekend & I greatly appreciate all the help he gave me around the house!  Cheers, bro!
