Uncle Steve’s Homemade Pizza

When visiting my Aunt Ellen and Uncle Steve, the one thing you can depend on is good food. Whether it is a huge Brisket meal or homemade pizza. Today we chose homemade pizza baked by Uncle Steve.

Fresh ingredients from the market today. 1

Now comes the kneading of the dough. So glad I was watching.

Did you catch that…….its the surprise. Pepperoni and fresh mozzarella cheese wrapped inside the crust…….Oh I can’t wait until its done.



Add the shredded mozzarella and the pepperoni.

(said with an italian accent)


Ready for the oven on 475 degrees. My mouth is salivating. A few minutes later, DONE.



Can you see the surprise….its there in the crust. Let me tell you, it was scrumptious.

Traveling across the country to visit family is awesome, and the food that comes with this visit is even better. Thanks Auntie Ellen and Uncle Steve for making me feel at home and for feeding me all these wonderful foods. I’ll be back in a hurry.
