It’sa Parma Pizza! My Rendition of a Favorite from Mandola’s Italian Market

Standard

Ever since I got my Kitchen Aid mixer I’ve been experimenting with tons of new things (new to me)! I love bread so I’ve made a few batches of that lately. I’ve also been doing pizza crusts which are FAR better than anything you can buy frozen or pre-made 🙂 We recently moved far away from any “real” pizza (all that’s out here is Domino’s). So one night I decided I would create one of our favorites at home. This is my rendition of the Parma Pizza at Mandola’s Italian Market. It was very similar, it had crispy crust, it looked the same,  and it was tasty! The only thing I would have done differently was get the dough thinner (we prefer cracker like crust), this was a bit thicker but still good. I still miss our usual Thursday Mandola’s night out… but this helps!
