I've been really loving having a Trader Joe's pizza dough in my fridge at all times. Homemade pizza dough is super easy to make, but it does take some planning with all of the rest and rise time. The dough at Trader Joe's is inexpensive, easy to work with, tasty, vegan, and has normal ingredients. Last night I didn't want to do a lot of cooking, but I also didn't want to rely on a freezer meal either. So, pizza time it is! All you have to do is let the dough rest at room temperature for twenty minutes, roll it out, and top it however you like! Last night I put some coconut herb Chao slices down, and then covered that with some green olive tapenade also from Trader Joe's, garlic, white beans, and crushed red pepper. The Chao and tapenade kind of become one, and it was creamy, and sharp. The tapenade has almost a bitter taste, and I mean that in a good way. They use good olives, with a strong flavor. White beans were the perfect topper. They add a creamy texture, and a neutral flavor so the tapenade is the star!
