Girls Night: Make Your Own Pizza Bar

In our house Friday Night is usually pizza night. So a few Fridays ago I hosted a little get together, just the girls, and I decided to do a Make Your Own Pizza Bar. I thought about making the dough but this was supposed to be a relaxing night so I didn't want to complicate it. I bought pizza dough from my FAV pizza place in Hoboken, Marios Pizzeria and set up little ramekins with different toppings. To roll out the dough I used a rolling pin and mostly my fingers, not as circular as they do it at a pizzeria, but still tasty. Then I cooked the dough by itself, with a little olive oil, for about 10 minutes then we topped them with our toppings of choice. Once we topped them I baked them for about another 15-20 minutes. I had never done this before so it was kind of trial and error, but I kept an eye on them so it came out perfect. For the sauces I used store bought pesto and store bought tomato sauce. All four of us couldn't decide which sauce to use so we all did half and half, so yummo! I also made smoked mozzarella stuffed meatballs (recipe to follow) as an appetizer and Nicole made amazing heart shaped red velvet whoopie pies (really wish I took a pic of those). It was a really fun night and each of our pizzas had a little something different. Honestly what else do you need; good friends, good food, and good wine, equals a perfect night!
