This post goes out to Littlequeenjay who lives far far away and doesn’t get good results from her current pizza recipe.
Here ya go girl!
Be sure to visit her blog she is awesome!!!!
This pizza recipe is so much tastier (and cheaper) then any take out pizza or frozen store bought.
It doesn’t require a lot of time and can be done in under 2 hours including dough rising.
– 2 cups warm water
– 2 packet of yeast
– 2 tablespoons sugar
Put water, yeast and sugar into a mixing bowl.
When yeast begins to foam like this….
– 2 teaspoons salt
– 1 egg
– 1/2 stick of softened or melted margarine or butter
– 7 cups of flour
Mix all ingredients.
Cover dough with a tea towel and set aside to rise.
Prepare your favorite pizza sauce and toppings.
We used portabello mushrooms and garlic.
For sauce I used 1 can of tomato paste(16 oz) plus 1 can of water.
1/2 cup of sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon oregano
After 1/2 an hour or up to an hour or more take your dough and punch it down as it will have risen.
Knead it for a couple of minutes.
Spread it on a cookie sheet or pizza pan.
Spread sauce and toppings on pizza dough.
Sprinkle on cheese.
I used cheddar.
Bake at 375 F for 20-30 minutes checking frequently for desired doneness.
We like ours a little burnt on the edges and very crisp.
This is a very simple and delicious pizza recipe.
If you are short on time and don’t want to make your own dough check out Trader Joe’s pizza dough for .99 cents in the refrigerater case. It comes in herb flavour and whole wheat beside plain white dough.
It’s not bad and in a pinch makes a good pizza.
Enjoy WP kids eat pizza today turkey day is coming!!!!
Our turkey is already brining in the fridge.
It’s the only way to make a turkey!
Put a cup of salt, a cup of sugar and a generous handful of spices into a big pot with some water. Bring to a boil. Let cool completely. Put your defrosted turkey in and add enough water so turkey is submerged. Put in fridge. It can sit for 3-4 days until you cook it. You won’t taste a better turkey where every bit is eaten. Will post recipe later.
