Pizza Pizza

I think it is the one food I could eat everyday without tiring of it.

Seriously not too healthy.Spring in bloom 002

However, you can feel better about this recipe for homemade pizza.You could garnish with all veggies or use turkey pepperoni (not the real thing, but still a tasty option).

I still haven’t developed a tasty wheat crust, but if anyone else has, please share.

Pizza Sauce: (for one big pizza)

1 1/2 garlic cloves (or 3/4 tsp of minced garlic which is what I use)

1 1/2 TBS Olive Oil

14 oz can Tomato puree

14 oz can crushed tomatoes (if you like chunky sauce, use diced)Spring in bloom 001

1 TBS brown sugar

1/2 TBS Italian seasoning

1/2 tsp basil

1/4 salt

1/4 crushed red pepper flakes

  1. In a 2 qt saucepan, saute garlic in oil.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients.
  3. Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat.Spring in bloom 003
  4. Simmer, uncovered for 20 minutes or until desired thickness. I let sauce simmer while I make dough.

 

Pizza Dough (one medium crust or two thin crust)

1 cup warm water

1 TBS yeast

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp salt

2 TBS oilSpring in bloom 007

2 1/2 cups flour

  1. In a small mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.
  2. Let rest five minutes.
  3. Mix salt and flour together
  4. Add oil to yeast
  5. Add dry ingredients.
  6. Gently knead dough with a little extra flour until it is smooth.
  7. Let rest five minutes, covered.
  8. Roll dough out and place onto oiled baking sheet or pizza pan. Press to create crust.
  9. Can brush with extra olive oil and sprinkle with garlic salt if desired.

  1. I use your pizza sauce recipe ALL the time! Love it. Also, I’ve found we like our pizza crust better when I use half whole wheat and half all-purpose….

  2. My boys (the big one, too) want to eat pizza EVERYDAY. I love pizza, but I like variety! Over the years, John has burned me out on numerous different kinds of take-out pizza, but I still love homemade. I’m excited to try this sauce recipe especially. 🙂 Thanks!

  3. We love pizza too – this is the pizza dough recipe I always use. I love that it doesn’t have yeast in it, so I don’t need to wait for it to rise! It makes enough for one big pizza, but is easy to double if needed.

    1.25 cups self-raising flour
    Pinch of salt
    50g butter
    2 tsp mixed herbs
    2 tbsp oil
    2 tbsp milk
    2 tbsp water

    Mix flour and salt, and rub butter in with hands (takes a couple of minutes), then mix in herbs, oil, milk and water. Press into oiled pizza tins, and add whatever topping you desire!
