The most from scratch pizza EVER

A good ol pizza party with some lovely friends + a pizza pinata
 Since we made homemade cheese we decided to go all the way and make an all from scratch pizza for when our friends came over for dinner. So dough, cheese, sauce all from scratch. Sadly we don't know how to make pepperoni yet :(

Whole wheat pizza dough:
4 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbs sugar
2 tsp sea salt
3 cups white wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1   sprinkle yeast over warm water and let sit until foamy, about 5 minutes
2   mix olive oil, sugar and salt into yeast mixture
3   in a large bowl combine flours
4   pour yeast mixture over flours and stir with a wooden spoon until combined
5   grease a large bowl and place dough inside, cover with a towel
6   put in warm dry place for an hour to rise
7   separate dough into 2 balls and knead each one a few times on a floured surface
8   use immediately or cover and place in fridge for a few days or freezer for up to 3 months

homemade cheese that we made a few days ago, the little add ins
 made it super tasty, and it melted really well

I love love vodka tomato sauce! LOVE IT, so I wanted to give making it a try but then Trader Joe's only had a very random assortment of tomatoes so I grabbed the last of the cherry tomatoes, some heirloom mini tomatoes, and yellow tomatoes on the vine (random but if you saw the options you'd have done it too) O man o man was this sauce delicious!
Vodka cream tomato sauce:
4 cups tomatoes cherry tomatoes (or assortment similar)
1 onion; roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1/2 cup Vodka
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp salt
1   preheat oven to 425 degrees F and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil
2   scatter the tomatoes and onion on baking sheet and throw on the garlic cloves
3   roast for 25-30 minutes, tomatoes should start to brown a little
4   toss it all in the blender and mix well
5   in a large saucepan add vodka, cream, tomato mixture, and salt
6   bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium low stirring often for about 15 minutes
and then devour it!

We rolled out our dough, slathered on our sauce and topped it all with mushrooms, zucchini, prosciutto, homemade mozzarella slices and basil. Baked in oven at 385 degress F for about 10-12 minutes. It was pretty darn tasty.

And then since our friend Kenneth turned another year older but is going on a year long adventure very soon we made him a pizza piñata filled with Asian candies for his birthday (consumable goods our favorite gifts) We thought it might be hard to break open, I taped it up pretty good, but hey him and his rolling pin batton killed it and candy scattered throughout the apartment. Loved it!
