The other day while Josh was working on his finals for the semester, I was surfing through Netflix and found this show called The Pizza Masters. I was pretty excited about it because my favorite food in the whole wide world is…PIZZA. I am very committed to finding good pizza. I love pizza so much that when I went to Italy a couple years ago, I ordered pizza at all the restaurants in all the towns I visited trying to find the best Italian pizza. It was a challenge and I never really found it because we had a layover in New York City right before we headed overseas so I had the delicious New York thin crust pizza fresh on my taste buds and fresh to compare. The Pizza Master follows a couple of loud, obnoxious, Italian American, pizza restaurant owners, across major cities in the USA searching for the best pizza and some other random food. I was quite disappointed about the show, but it really made me crave Josh’s pizza. Josh’s pizza is amazing! I never liked homemade pizza before I met Josh. With Josh’s pizza you can have the delicious taste and quality of restaurant style pizza right from your own oven. I sound like a commercial, but it is seriously incredible. My favorite!
For my birthday 2 years ago, I asked Josh for a pizza party. We invited a bunch of friends and family over and Josh made 14 pizzas. Bless his heart, especially with one oven. But he guessed right and we only had a pizza and a half left over. Throughout our time together we have entertained many people with Josh’s wonderful pizza. We like the traditionals like sausage, but we also like to branch out. Here is a list of our favorites.
The Joshy C. Decker- sausage, green chilies, mozzarella, tomato sauce with chipotle, and red pepper flakes.
Buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo (yes, that’s a real sentence)- blue cheese/ranch cream sauce, mozzarella, buffalo sauced chicken, a little bit of blue cheese crumbles, and red onion (just for me, Josh hates onions). (Picture below)
5 Courses of Steak- steak, mozzarella, chopped peppers, Gorgonzola cheese and minced garlic butter, and tomato sauce. (Picture below)
Ann Froman – Sausage, mozzarella, fresh basil, tomato sauce, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
The JaQK- Alfredo cream sauce, Italian seasoned chicken, asparagus pesto, and mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese. (Picture below)
Josh’s Pizza Crust Recipe
1 cup flour
Parsley, Oregano, and Crushed pepper (if you like heat)
2 egg whites
1 tsp. of olive oil
1 tsp. gluten
1 envelope of dry yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
Turn the oven on to 500 degrees. Mix all the dry ingredients together, except the yeast. Add the egg whites and olive oil. Mix the yeast in the warm water and wait for the yeast to bloom. After the yeast blooms, add the yeast water until you get the dough to a right consistency. Not to dry, not to wet. Let the dough rise for at least an hour. Roll out the dough very thin and bake for a couple of minutes. Take out and add your favorite toppings. Bake for 8-10 more minutes. Keep an eye on it. Enjoy!
We’re finally at the end of our top 10 list. We have taken a few detours but the list is finally finished. We hope you enjoy our favorite foods and try them for yourself. Happy Eating! Buen Provecho!
