While we love ordering pizza from our favourite pizzeria, it can be expensive… and hard on the waistline. In turn, I often make pizza at home, and the kids help with the toppings and spread the sauce. It becomes a family affair and adds to the fun of the evening. (Tip: I always sprinkle garlic powder and basil on the sauce.)
This week, we made our pizza with a new kind of cheese – Mozzarellissima, a new stretch mozzarella that makes pizza out of this world! (I’m looking forward to using it in my lasagna, too!
Mozzarellissima has a lovely buttery taste, and stretches like no other. I could tell the minute I started grating it… it’s definitely different than my usual mozzarella. My daughter couldn’t resist sneaking a few handfuls while we were making the pizza, so you know it’s good!
We couldn’t help but take a peek at the pizza in the oven. Mmmm… it smelled so good!
It tasted great, too… especially when paired with a lovely glass of wine. 😉
As you may know, I’m a deal hound, so when I heard that I could get $1 off Mozzarellissima with the purchase of Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio or Leonardo Chianti (look for the bottles with special tags) at the LCBO, I figured I’d give it a try. I’m a real sucker for Chianti, so red was the winner! This promotion is available until the end of the month… perfect timing for holiday entertaining.
