One great pre-made item from Trader Joe's: pizza dough.

I usually buy the plain dough, but I decided the buy the garlic herb dough last night. Threw on some Gruyère cheese, ham, onions, and heirloom tomatoes. TJ's now sells a "gourmet tomato medley", which is nice because buying heirloom tomatoes from the farmer's market costs an arm and a leg. I didn't add any herbs because the dough already had the flavor. Pizza turned out pretty well.

Next time, I think I'll prebake the dough before adding the toppings. Gruyère's fats separate out pretty easily, resulting in a lot of grease making the dough soggy. Otherwise, the nutty flavor makes it an excellent pizza cheese. No pictures this time, but I definitely won't make pizza dough from scratch when it's pretty good from TJ's.
