Ingredients

How to make it

  • The sauce:
  • Combine all listed ingredients for the sauce...
  • On medium high heat, cook until the contents reduce to half, stirring often to prevent sticking
  • Allow the sauce to cool completely
  • Grind the sauce with a hand blender, or food processor until it is smooth and fine
  • In the interim, work on your pizza dough…
  • ================================
  • The Dough:
  • Combine all the dry ingredients
  • Combine the yeast mixture with the beaten egg and oil.
  • Add slowly to dry ingredients, mixing well, until the dough starts to come away from the bowl.
  • Add more flour as needed to make the dough workable
  • Gently knead the dough, folding, pressing, and turning, for about 5 minutes.
  • This dough does not have to be kneaded to the smooth and blistered stage.
  • Butter and flour the pizza pan
  • Now, shape the dough into a ball, and gradually flatten out to fit the pizza pan.
  • Let the dough sit for about five minutes to dry a little on top, then begin adding ingredients:
  • Add the tomato sauce first
  • Top with the aforementioned ingredients, and sprinkle with the cheeses
  • ================================
  • To bake:
  • Preheat oven to 425*F
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the dough is golden brown, and the center of the pizza is bubbling
  • Allow the finished pizza to rest for about five minutes to allow the tomato sauce to firm up.
  • ================================
  • ***alternative topping suggestions:
  • yellow or orange sweet pepper
  • pineapple
  • lemon or lime zest
  • jalapeno peppers
  • chives
  • Gruyere’ cheese
  • Sweet pepper seeds (for a nice, nutty flavor)
  • Parsley
  • Broken cashew nuts
  • ENJOY! :+D

    I buy fresh home made dough from the deli down the street! Sooo...I will skip that step. But the combo of ingredients sounds great. I will have to try out on the family some night!

    WOW, Elaine! Wait till Peter sees this. He's off running some errands right now, so I decided to get in here. It's a fantastic recipe and I rated it a five.
    Take care of that cold and I hope you feel better soon.
