We have taken to making our own pizza instead of going out. This way we know what's in it. I rally don't know what has gotten into me, I keep worrying about what is in things and looking for better, healthier ways. Restaurants don't care about my health, but I do. I found a simple dough recipe, I throw the ingredients in the bread machine and an hour later it's ready for us to divide and conquer.
This one is mine! I used pepperoni fresh from the deli, sausage and ground beef as my toppings. The pizza sauce is from a recipe I found, then altered a bit. :0) I'll include it at the end in case you want to try it out.
Check out that crust! yummy!!
We spent a couple of days searching high and low for pizza stones right before Christmas - we made individual pizzas for Christmas dinner. When we couldn't find any nearby I started googling and duh! You can use any unglazed quarry stone/tile. These were 46 cents each, so a significant savings over the label pizza stone. AND these are much easier to store when you're not using them. Our pizzas are baked at 550 degrees for about 15 minutes.
My Pizza Sauce
1 Big Can of Tomato Sauce or Diced Tomatoes
12 oz can of Tomato Paste (I add this a bit at time, checking the consistency - of course if you get it too thick just throw in more sauce)
1 tsp chopped garlic (I use jarred organic garlic)
Shake in some Dried Onion (I think I use 2-3 tsp)
2 tsp dried basil
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt (this sauce is not at all salty)
1 tsp sugar
1 large bay leaf
2 tsp fennel seed
I just throw all this in a saucepan and simmer for 20-30 minutes. This makes enough for about 6 pizzas - since there's three in our family I just freeze whatever is left after the first use.
