We are pizza people, for sure. We have homemade pizza at least once a week. Pizza is great because you can customize it for your family and what you have on hand. In the picture above, I had some leftover turkey ham and turkey bacon that I used as a topping on one pizza. The other I left plain cheese, a homage to Kevin from Home Alone. (Guess what we watched today?) Here's how I make our pizza crust and sauce. YUM!
- 1 1/2 cups of warm water
- 1 pk yeast (or 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast)
- 1 TBS oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more if needed
Punch dough down; divide it into two pieces and press onto two greased, round 12 inch pizza pans.
Lazy-gal's Pizza Sauce:
- 8 oz can tomato sauce
- garlic powder
- 3 cups shredded reduced-fat mozzarella
- Turkey Pepperoni (or toppings of your choice)
Bake in preheated 425 degree oven on lowest shelf for 13-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is lightly browned. Makes two 12 inch pizzas.
