Roasted Peppers and Goat Cheese Pizza


Yes, the ingredients that you saw in yesterday’s post, show up again today. But isn’t that one of the challenges that we face on a constant basis…how to use up leftovers in a creative, or if not creative, at least in an appetizing way. So, I had some of the roasted peppers leftover and some of the goat cheese, and I had been craving pizza lately. Do you ever do that, get stuck on a food? I had pizza 3 times in the past week, I finally feel like I’ve saturated my need for pizza for a while. I made a garlic infused olive oil to brush on the crust and used my favorite bread machine pizza dough recipe, only this time I was actually smart enough to make double the dough recipe and freeze one ball of it. Why have I not been doing that in the past???? Also for the pizza dough, I substitued the whey from the drained yogurt (from making yogurt cheese)for the water in the recipe, and it was great. It gave the dough a slightly tangy flavor, almost like a sourdough, but not quite.

    I second Pam’s statement that your pictures are great! But in my house, we never have to deal with leftovers. Those which are not consumed by the hungry hordes for dinner become someone’s lunch the next day. I am surprised we have had no fistfights over who gets the leftovers.

    Hi this is really a nice blog article about pizza and peppers.. I found this ( nice site about comparing any two things on the Internet. The results are based on the articles published in I compared goat cheese and cow cheese.
    This nice site has been surprisingly designed by an India based company Huge H Web Services ( This was unexpected by me as I had always believed that the Indian companies were mainly good at BPO jobs and other software services outsourcing.
