I got some requests to post pizza……….so I thought I’ll post it today……….homemade pizzas are really awesome……..when the time of baking pizza my hubby was saying it feels like went to pizza hut!!!!!!!! Actually the aroma of oregano spreads………I made the pizza sauce also.Once I bought pizza sauce from shop but I didn’t like the taste of it…….so I tried my version of pizza sauce………it was really nice……..preserved ones and fresh ones are really different…….pizzas are made on pizza stone I don’t have pizza stone so I used an old fry pan….. I removed the handle of those fry pans and used it for baking pizzas it came out very well in these pans………one pizza I made with thick crust and another with medium thick crust……….now have the homemade pizza………..
