I made a pizza tonight-- garden style. From the garden, I used peppers, tomatoes, basil and oregano. I put the fresh herb leaves on whole--was a little worried about how they would cook up, but they were wonderful. I sliced the tomatoes and put them in a strainer to drain so they wouldn't make the pizza soggy. Worked fine. On my half I put a sliced onion, separated into rings. Only on my half because Rachel dislikes my beloved vegetable. I used both Cheddar and mozzarella cheese. Somehow I think they probably don't use Cheddar in Italy. I would have put mushrooms and artichokes on, but didn't have any. Gosh, it turned out delicious!

I made pizza last night too! It turned out soggy because I've never had time to raise the dough before, and apparently you're supposed to pre-bake it a little if it's risen. We just had pepperoni though. With cheddar cheese. Pizza places don't use cheddar, so italy probably doesn't either. I think it is more greasy than other cheeses.

Sounds yummy. Draining the tomatoes is a good idea.
