Smoked Scamorza Pizza
In Great Shape
This Smoked Scamorza Pizza is to die for. Scamorza cheese, which is aged mozzarella, is delicious by itself let alone on top of a pizza. Add artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers and black olives and your ready for a great taste experience.
I love shaping the pizza in an oval shape like my Grandmother did. It seems to give the pizza a more rustic, traditional style. If I had a built in pizza oven I’d be in business. Once you perfect the pizza dough recipe, the rest is easy.
For this recipe I like to knead roasted garlic right into the dough instead of spreading it on top. This way you get a the great taste of garlic with every bite. Just don’t talk to anybody the rest of the day. My favorite saying is "A clove a day keeps everyone away".
So here’s my recipe for Smoked Scamorza Pizza. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. INGREDIENTS
