Homemade Pizza















I make homemade pizza quite often, but I have finally found my all time favorite homemade pizza recipe. This was Soooo good! It took A LOT of self control not to devour enough to make me sick. I used a crust recipe that I have used before, but I think what made this pizza even better than usual was the combination of the toppings I chose.

Crust:
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
Sauce:

The best sauce I have found for pizza, is Lawry's spaghetti sauce. It comes in a packet. You add water, oil and tomato paste.

Toppings:

pepperoni
hard salami, thinly sliced(I buy the pre-sliced)
parmesan cheese
shredded mozzarella  cheese
onions, thinly sliced and sauteed in oil
sliced black olives

Add crust ingredients in order given, to your bread machine and set it to the dough cycle. When the dough is complete, roll it out on a floured surface. The original recipe makes enough for a thick crust in a 9X13 pan. This time I rolled it out to fit a medium to large size pizza pan and I also used some for a smaller size pizza for the kids. The larger pizza had a very thick crust. We could have made 2 in the bigger pizza pan with thinner crusts. When using a 9X13 pan, I oil it first. Let the dough rise again for 20-30 minutes. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes. Take out of the oven. Add sauce(I don't use very much sauce. I think it takes away from the flavor of the toppings), Parmesan cheese(sprinkle over sauce), salami, pepperoni, cheese, onions and olives. Bake ate 375 for approx. 15-25 minutes (time will vary depending on size of pizza).
