Pizza Night

After a long work week I try to keep Friday night dinner fun and relatively quick and easy.  Burgers, various sandwiches and pizza are usually
 on the menu.  Last night was pizza.  The fun thing about pizza is the endless possibilities.

This pizza was half pepperoni, half spicy chicken sausage, green peppers and red onions.  But the creative possibilities are endless.

1 package yeast
1 tbs sugar
2/3 cup warm water
Mix together and let sit for 5 minutes
2 cups of flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup olive oil
yeast mixture
I mix in my Ninja with the dough hook for about 1 minute
Remove dough and kneed for about 1 more minute
Place dough in a covered, greased bowl and let double in size. Approximately 1 hour.

Pizza Sauce:
8 ounces tomato sauce
1-2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 minced onion
tsp or two of dried oregano
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Sautee garlic and onions, add sauce and oregano and let simmer.  Right before you are ready to use the sauce, stir in the parmesan cheese.

In the oven preheated to 475 degrees I pre cook the dough for about 7-10 minutes.  Remove from the oven, add sauce and toppings and mozzarella cheese.  Return to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes or until the mozzarella is bubbly delicious. 


  1. I made pizza at home for the first time this month - in the shape of skulls. They were fair; it is a work in progress. Someday soon I make a proper pizza
