Tasty, tasty pizza

This is perhaps one of the best pizzas that Jim makes. And it's a good one to have in the mix when we are craving pizza but don't have any pizza sauce in the house. To make this bad boy, Jim first puts an entire head of garlic in some foil with a drizzle of olive oil and wraps it up. Then he roasts it in the oven at 375 for about 45 minutes or until it's nice and soft. This really mellows out the garlic. While that's in the over he thinly slices some sweet onion, then slowly sweats them in a covered skillet until they just begin to brown. Depending on your stove this can take 20-30 minutes.

In the meantime, the garlic has probably cooled enough to all him to squeeze out all the soft cloves into a small bowl. A quick mash of them and they are set aside.

Once the onions and garlic are done, he chops up some thinly sliced prosciutto and begins to stretch out the pizza dough.

On the dough, in place of tomato sauce, he smears out about half of the garlic. Next he puts on the mozzerella cheese. Then it's topped off with some chopped prosciutto and sweet onions and off to the 485 degree oven (on a pizza stone, of course) for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and just beginning to get golden brown.

We us Trader Joe's pizza dough and find it makes two nice sized pizzas. If we're good, we'll eat one with a salad. If we're bad, we eat both and think....."What salad?"

bad boy, indeed! your Jim is some multi-talented guy! At our house, The Huz can make eggs. Um, and toast. A little oatmeal, in a pinch. And doggone good fried fish. That's about it!

Ooooh! This does look good...I think roasted garlic is the best. I think I might add some fresh tomatoes to top it off. Yum!
