Tiny Food: A Homemade Pizza Story

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you mamas!

Since my mom is home, we’ve been cooking quite a lot and homemade pizza has quickly become of my favourite recipes so far. It’s such an easy recipe and everyone at home gets really excited when they see we’ll cook them for lunch or supper.

This weekend, I spent my mama day cooking some for my little ones, cuddling them and having the happiest unplanned Sunday of all time. 

The dough 


To be honest, I didn’t have the time to do the dough from scratch, between my lack of sleep and time, I bought it from a local pizzeria we adore at Marche Atwater. To all my local friends in Montreal, this is the best tip EVER: you can get daily, fresh dough for $4.50 at Pizza Mia and it’ll be the perfect quantity to make two regular pizzas, WIN!

If you have time to do the entire process, here are my favourite recipes:

The Sauce

My good friend Gaby, showed me her secret pizza sauce this weekend and I was like: wait, what? so simple? Si!
In your next pizza party, here’s what you need to do:

Ingredients

  • Tomato passata (or strained crushed tomatoes) 
  • Olive oil
  • Salt, pepper
  • Italiano mix spices

How to

Mix all the spices with the passata and Olive oil. Do not cook the tomato sauce and serve fresh directly on the dough. 

Toppings 


We did three pizzas:

  • Mushrooms, feta & onions
  • Margherita with basil
  • Prosciutto & salami

You can be super creative and add fun tops like smoked mozzarella, buffala, salami, endless veggie options, and curated hams.

We used rectangular molds and then cut tiny pieces to serve them, super adorable!

How do you love your pizza?
Bon Appetit!

    I can relate to this post so much ❤️ �� Fridays are homemade pizza night for us! Making everything from scratch is easy with a stand mixer! As for the sauce, I always make my own in big batches and freeze in various containers. They can last me a month or so. If you ever feel like giving your pizza a better texture, cook the pasata with Italian spices, basil and a tad of sugar to balance out the acidity of the tomatoes. Let it cook until is thick… trust me when I tell you it gives you pizza a better texture! … oh! Another trick? Broil your pizza for 1-2 mins before you take it out! … it’s amazing!
