It’s been a long time since I’ve done a #TasteTuesday segment, so I figured it would be a good idea to brush up on some new recipes. Since we’ve moved, we’ve been cooking almost every night. Which is nice because it’s probably healthier and we get some extra bonding time in making meals together. Also, we’re literally in the middle of nowhere and there are no restaurants close by. Not even somewhere that will deliver pizza! Crazy, right?! Since the pizza can’t come to us, why not just make our own! Keep reading for how we made this delicious dinner for two.


For this pizza recipe, a key item was not able to be used due to someone not liking it. CHEESE! I know, absolutely crazy! Nate doesn’t like cheese, and I am lactose intolerant, though I still eat it. So, we made a cheeseless pizza. The things we do out of love, lol. However, you don’t have to use the same toppings, if any on your pizza. Make it your own! Use whatever your favorite toppings are, we typically like supreme style pizzas so this is how we made ours. Also, this is a completely different crust than I’d normally use, they didn’t have your original circle pie crust, just this flat bread crust. But it turned out very yummy, so we’d probably use it again.
