I wanted homemade pizza one day and was feeling too lazy (and too hungry) to take the time to make dough and wait for yeast to rise. Usually, I’d use pita bread for this, but I didn’t have any. I didn’t have any of the usual substitutes either, (not even an English muffin). Necessity being the mother of invention, I decided to create another “base” for my pizza.
It turned out that a homemade tortilla made a perfect crust for my pizza. I didn’t roll it out that much, but left it fairly thick (so it would be more like pita bread).
And, while I was low on pizza base substitutes, I did have sausage, fresh eggplant, and plenty of tomato sauce.
I made a quick tortilla crust, chopped up the veggies, put it all together, and baked it. It made a great, fairly easy lunch.
I had been making do with a tiny, carved rolling pin my grandma gave me. It was pretty (and rolled out cookies or crackers with designs), but really too small to do much good. So, I went and got this rolling pin instead. It rolls the dough more easily, and with much less pressure required.
