I may not be a Pokémon master, but I decided to spruce up my pizza so that I can get in the Pokémon spirit.
Okay, I didn’t quite hop on board with the latest craze in Pokémon GO game, but I have followed my younger cousins once or twice on an adventure to catch some Pikachus (side note: none were found, but they did manage to get a hold of some Eevees).
I’ve been finding a lot of Pokémon-inspired recipes lately but when I stumbled upon this Pokéball pizza, I was totally inspired. I knew that I had to whip one up.
Things that I learned after making my first semi-homemade pizza:
- I need to learn how to make my own pizza crust (which is why I dubbed this pizza as “semi-homemade”). My mother has an excellent recipe for one, so I’ll definitely have to learn more from her.
- My husband purchased a perforated pizza pan (a.k.a a pan with holes) and it is absolutely genius. It really helped in cooking out my dough evenly.
- Adding extra cheese makes pizza extra delicious (for me, at least).
- It took two layers of black olives to get the outline juuuuust right.
Overall, we’re happy with how our creation turned out. I’m looking forward to doing more “themed” recipes – makes for some good practice for birthday parties, holiday events, etc.
Have you been catching lots of Pokémon?
