Pizza with Muenster Cheese,
Black Olives, Mushrooms, and Onions
by me at home
* * * *
Last week, I raved about a line of frozen pizzas (see 1.292 3 Cheeses & Onions Pizza) made by an Italian company called, appropriately enough, Pizzeria Italiana. In the interim, I've gone back to the supermarket where I'd discovered them and bought the whole line. Here, I took their basic Margherita and added veggies and a slice of muenster cheese. After warming up the pie in a covered pan drizzled with olive oil on low heat for about 20 minutes, which melted the cheese and gives the crust a nice crisp, I tossed the whole thing under the broiler for another 5 minutes to finish cooking the veggies and brown the cheeses a bit. Not as good as it had seemed last week, not even with my embellishments, no rave here, but it's still pretty good, especially for a frozen pizza. Definitely worth having in the freezer for emergencies.
