Tonight, I made some home-made pizza. It’s a favorite around here, and I thought I would share the recipe to spread the love!
Pizza Dough for Bread Machine (makes 1 ½ lbs. of dough)
1 C. warm water
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp Vegetable oil
1 ½ tsp. salt
3 C. flour
2 ¼ tsp. yeast
Layer ingredients in order, patting down the flour before adding yeast. Run your bread machine on dough setting only. I’m lazy, and don’t make my dough by hand anymore. I’m sorry; my hands are a little full chasing dinosaurs around the house!
After dough is finished, roll out and form to a 12” x 16” cookie sheet, or 2 pizza pans. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 8 min.
1 C. or more of prepared Spaghetti sauce (I hate how bland pizza sauce is, and find that most spaghetti sauce is nicely spiced, and mighty tasty for pizza sauce
½ C. Mushrooms, chopped
½ C. Green onions, chopped
½ C. Black olives, diced
2 C. Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Spread enough pizza sauce to cover dough. You don’t want so much that it’s soaked, but enough that it’s not dry, either. Put a layer of pepperoni, then some mushrooms, green onions, black olives, and whatever other toppings your heart desires. Put a layer of mozzarella cheese on top. I then cut a bunch of pepperonis into heart shapes and placed on top of the cheese. Bake the entire pizza for 15 min, at 400 degrees, until cheese is melted! The family loved it, and the little hearts were so cute!
Such cute little hearts!
Until Next Time,
