A New Twist on Pizza Pie
Now I know this isn't the most beautiful looking pizza you've ever seen but once you take one bite, that thought will go right out the window. My first bite of Vodka pizza was at Prince Umberto's in Franklin Square, Long Island.Friends of mine ranted and raved about this pizza so I finally made a trip to the island to get a taste. I have been hooked ever since!
There is nothing better than biting down into a creamy white pie covered in and vodka sauce...not toppings; just cheese and vodka sauce. My version is not quite the same as Prince Umberto's, but it's great, none the less.
Your favorite pizza dough
2-3 tbsp of olive oil
4 oz mozzarella cheese
1.5 cups vodka sauce
1) Preheat oven to 500 degrees
2) Roll out dough and drizzle olive oil then sprinkle cheese
3) Place pizza in oven for 5 to 10 minutes, until cheese is melted
4) Remove from oven and top with vodka sauce. Cook for another 10 minutes.
5) Let cool and enjoy!
