I love Fridays and for some reason I’m always craving pizza on Friday evenings. Maybe it’s the comfort food factor or the fact that it just seems so easy to prepare, at least if you’re not doing everything from scratch. So, you’ll be relieved to find this recipe for a semi-homemade pizza bread that you can make quite easily and without a lot of mess. If you have the homemade bread and sauce already done, you’ll be really proud of yourself; if not, no worries- it’s still a great quick meal, alongside a nice salad, of course.
I’m also happy to report that this recipe calls for using a halal, certified-organic pepperoni that does not have nitrates- super hard to find! I have steered clear of nitrites in my food (mostly found in processed meats like hot dogs, salami and pepperoni) for a very long time because I had read way too many unhealthy facts about them. Now, researchers have recently published information that indicates a link between sausage and cancer, or basically foods with nitrites and their link to cancer. Alhamdullilah (thank God) for companies like Whole Earth Meats who are trying so hard to bring us halal, organic and chemical-free food. The least we can do back is to show our support by purchasing their products and spreading the word about them to others- anyone interested in eating better and knowing more about the origins of their food.
I used halal, organic beef pepperoni by Whole Earth Meats, shredded mozzarella from Trader Joe’s, and Pomi tomato sauce by Parmalat
