What's your favorite pizza?
November 20, 2012 at 2:40 PM



How do you make your pizza?  Does anyone have a yummy recipe?  Here's the recipe I use for crust

First I mix these 3, then let it sit for about 10 minutes
Warm Water -  0.75 cup
Fleischmann's - Active Dry Yeast - 1.125 tsp
Pure Maple Syrup, 0.33 tablespoon
   
Then I mix in these 2
Salt , 0.5 teaspoon                                    
Evoo, 1 tbsp                                            


Then I slowly add the flour
King Arthur - 100% Organic All-Purpose Flour, 2/3 cup            
Hodgson Mill - Organic Whole Grain Whole Wheat Flour, 1 cup

Then I let it rise for an hour in a bowl covered with a towel. I split it into 3 to make 3 personal pizzas so everyone can have the toppings they like :D 
I make it all sorts of ways, with tomato sauce, with beans, with sour cream as the "base".  with onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, corn, sausage, etc.  And I usually shred mozzarella or cheddar to throw on there too.

The one in the pic has homemade refried beans, corn, onions, peppers, cilantro and cheddar

    I'm generally too lazy to make crusts, but I use the pre-bagged ones from Trader Joes most of the time. I usually love a tomato sauce with mushrooms, tomatoes, black olives, and cheese on mine though. DF is in love with BBQ chicken and stuff. I just can't get behind that one though. :-P

    I've always tried to find a good pre-made dough but I haven't found one!  but we don't have TJ's.

    yum I've done that too but it's been a while :D  I love hummus and garlic.  And if garlicy isn't a word, it needs to be.  lol

    That looks great Stefanie!  I usually like veggie pizza but I use Whole wheat tortillas (la tortilla brand) instead of crust as my hubby likes the Pillsbury crust and it's high in calories!

    I like to use tortillas too. Makes it extra crispy!
