Italian Lemon Cake

This Italian lemon pound cake is a recipe that I'd had my eye on for a long time. I finally made it back in April! I skipped adding frosting but if you visit the original recipe it'll tell you how to make it. The glaze needed a lot more lemon juice than the recipe called for. I used 5 tablespoons of lemon juice and it was still very thick. The cake itself isn’t very lemony so you really do need either the glaze or the frosting to bring the lemon flavour to this recipe. I'm not complaining though, it was still really delicious!

Pizza Your Way

Actually, it's pizza my way using what I had in the fridge the other day. Use whatever you have on hand to top your pizza.

You can make a white pizza if you don't have or want to make sauce. Mix some minced garlic with olive oil and brush over the rolled dough. My favourite toppings on a white pizza would be simply mozzarella, green olives and sliced tomatoes.

When it comes to topping pizza, the possibilities are endless!

Pizza Your Way
Makes 12 slices

  • 1 recipe pizza dough
  • 1 recipe pizza sauce
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella
  • 2 oz leftover cooked chicken breast, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted red peppers
  • 4 chopped sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil)
  • 1/2 cup diced button mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Roll out the dough to fit your large pizza pan. In my case I used a square baking sheet. My pizza looked more rustic and there's nothing wrong with that!
  3. Spread half the sauce recipe over the dough.
  4. Sprinkle half the cheese over the sauce then add your toppings.
  5. Sprinkle the other half of the cheese over the toppings followed by the parmesan and oregano.
  6. Brush the edges of the pizza dough with olive oil then bake for 25 minutes or until brown and bubbly.
  7. Let it rest for a few minutes before cutting.
