I'm obsessed with making pizza

Remember when I was telling you I'd discovered that Pillsbury crust and it had made me return to making homemade pizza?  Well, I found a homemade crust I love...I have been obsessed with making pizza lately.  I make it at least once a week and last week's pizza, I ate entirely by myself.  Hey, I'm nursing, I can get away with the extra calories. ;)
I use this crust recipe: Pizza Crust 
We don't use pizza sauce which I think is the secret to our pizza success.  This was Tony's discovery.  Instead of sauce we mix about 2-3 Tablespoons (I eyeball it) of Olive Oil, about a teaspoon of kosher salt, a teaspoonish of dried oregano, and 1 clove of minced garlic.  Spread it on the crust with a pastry brush.  Then cover with very thinly sliced fresh Mozzarella.  Then top with whatever you like. We've done tomatoes, pepperoni, black olives, mushrooms, etc., it all turns out SUPER tasty.

That looks beyond incredible. I would kill to have some of that right now, it looks amazing. Oh man. If only I weren't too lazy to do it myself. ;)

Should we call it Poppa Tony's pizza? Yes. The extra calories are for the bambino. I'm with ya on that. It looks fantastic. I'm salivating.
