Pizza never used to be a comfort food to me. It was just something to get when I did not have the energy to cook. It was filler food. My homesickness has been really bad lately and so I started craving our favourite pizza on Vancouver Island: Ali Baba‘s Phat Philly. Where else can you get a roast chicken pizza with green onions, mushrooms, ranch and barbecue sauce? If I can’t buy it on this coast, I can make it and have a taste of home!
Finding a good pizza dough recipe for the breadmaker was a bit of a challenge but I found one here. I add just over a tsp of sugar to get it a little more oomph! See how big it got? You can of course make the dough by hand but I have no energy lately so my breadmaker did all that work for me.
There is my favourite Vancouver Island pizza! My husband and Mom both said that it may actually be better than the original which is super high praise. I have tried six different pizza places in the HRM and so far, none of them come close to any of my favourite BC pizzas. That’s OK, I can make better pizza than all of them.
