Since we purchased our pizza oven we have had fun experimenting with pizza dough and pizza toppings. It's always been a laugh and most times, even though we have had some disappointments, we have enjoyed what we have cooked.
Tonight I made a vegetarian special which is my go to pizza if I am unsure on what I want (most of the time) but this time I decided to jazz it up with some spiciness of jalapeños. I adore jalapeños and I am often caught eating them straight from the jar.
These lovely pickled treats along with the fresh tasting vegetables was so comforting..... who needs to order a pizza when you can make fresh goodness like this in your own home?
