3/4 cup lukewarm water
1 pkg. yeast
1 tsp. sugar
2 cups flour (we usually use whole wheat and sometimes add cornmeal, tasty!)
1 tsp. salt
Combine water, yeast, and sugar and let sit for 5 minutes. Add flour and salt. Knead 10-15 minutes. Let dough rest for about 15 minutes. Roll out. Add toppings, bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.
You can use baking powder biscuit dough for a crust. It's quicker, but not as authentic.
Oregano or Italian seasonings to taste
1 or 1 1/2 8 oz. cans tomato sauce
Leftover spaghetti sauce makes a wonderful pizza sauce. This sauce can also be put on other breads, topped with pizza toppings and served for a quick meal.
This sauce should cover 1 baking sheet size pizza.
chopped ham, pineapple, sausage, pepperoni, hamburger etc.
chopped onions, green pepper, mushroom, olives, etc.
Serves 3 pizza lovers.
The crust is from Diena Simmons who got it from her friend Teresa. The photo is from our own lovely Elisabeth.
