I can't even remember the last time we did Pizza Friday, but it was probably well before the weather broke. Turning the oven up to 550 degrees could be considered a stupid idea when the average temperature has hovered around 90 degrees all week, but we had the a/c on and it wasn't too hot outside, so we went for it.
SP made the pizza sauce using a Lidia recipe that called for squeezing all the liquid out of the tomatoes and then mixing them with spices (oregano, salt, hot pepper flakes) and calling it a day. We were both a little skeptical about an uncooked sauce, but it was really, really good. A little too salty for our tastes, but we can just add less next time. We topped the pizza with pepperoni (hidden under the cheese) and some sliced garlic. Yum!
