Baby Sprinkle + Pizza Recipe!

I wasn't planning to have any type of celebration for baby girl #2 but with much pushing and prodding from a friend, I reluctantly decided to throw a small party at my home for some close friends and family to celebrate the soon-to-be new addition to my growing family. I didn't make a full registry since we only need small items since we had little A not long ago and just did the bare minimum with decorations of balloons, a banner, and small favors. I'm actually very happy I did it because it was so nice to see the friends and family I haven't seen in a while and probably won't see again until the arrival of baby B. :)

It was also a lot easier and more enjoyable for me this time around because I opted to order food instead of cooking this time, with the exception of some Red Lobster biscuits and pizza, which turned out much better than I expected thanks to my new pizza stone! I definitely recommend one to get that fluffy dough with a crispy bottom, which you won't get from using a regular baking sheet. Here's the fool-proof recipe below - we made 4 pizzas because we liked it so much, including little A!

Pizza dough
28 oz can of crushed tomatoes (Sclafani is the brand I used)
2 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Pinch of salt
Fresh whole-milk mozzarella (I like salted)
Shredded low-moisture mozzarella
Pepperoni (if desired)
1. Let pizza dough come to room temperature.
2. Preheat oven to 500 degrees and heat pizza stone for one hour.
3. Stretch out pizza dough when ready, using plenty of flour and trasnfer to a pizza peel dusted with flour or a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to slide off easily onto the pizza stone when ready.
4. Mix the rest of the ingredients together to make the sauce. Using a ladle, place 2/3 cup in the middle of the dough and spread to the edges.
5. Top with both cheeses - thumb-size pieces of fresh whole-milk mozzarella and a sprinkling of shredded low-moisture mozzarella and pepperoni, if desired.
6. Slide dough from peel or sheet onto the pizza stone and cook for 4 minutes, then turn oven from bake to broil and blister the top of the pizza, about 5 minutes more.
