I have been lazy lately. I mean. Lazy. I come home and realize that I only really feeeel like making pizza. I mean, defrosting healthy fish full of good omegas... figuring out healthy side dishes... after a long day at the office... when I could really just mush into the couch and watch some fabulous Jane Austen-esque movie with a slice of pizza.
Lazy....and kinda fatty for that matter.
What does this end up resulting in?
Pizza. And lots of it.
I have been making an overabundance of pizza lately. Do I have any regrets? Not one.
DapperDan's thoughts on the matter? Well, let's just say if they had an AA for pizza, he'd be right in it.. front row, in constant relapse, on and off that horse, time and again. Needless to say, he has enjoyed every moment of my laziness resulting in the making of pizza.
Especially when I have recipes like my grandmother's which makes pizza dough so simple to make that it would be insulting to not make it constantly, quite frankly. Especially when pizza is so delicious. I mean, hi.. tomatoes. carbs. cheese. God's gift to mankind. (well.. okay, the second most important gift to mankind).
In one of my relapses and constant state of pizza making, I had decided to combine to fabulous recipes:
My grandmother's pizza dough and Alton Brown's Jerky Tomato Sauce recipe.
Holy Moses. What a treat it was. I suggest you make this as soon as humanly possible. It's smokey, it's cheesy, it's downright delicious.

Sauce- Alton Brown, heart him.
The dough recipe can be found here from a previous post!
The sauce recipe can be found here from a previous post, as well!
I combined the two, added a cheddar/monterey jack cheese on top. Died. Went to heaven. And then came back down to finish the pizza.
