Who doesn't love pizza?!
I had to share my first totally
And it was fun and easy!
I was inspired by my friend Camille.
Thanks, Camille! And move over
I can't wait to try it on the grill.
Here is what I did ~
Combine in a large bowl;
2 cups flour (Bob's Red Mill Unbleached)
1 envelope Pizza Yeast
1 & 1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt.
Add 2/3 cup very warm (115*) water and 3 Tablespoons
Olive Oil. Mix with a wooden spoon until blended
and soft dough forms into a
loose ball. Knead on a lightly floured surface about 4
minutes or until smooth and elastic, adding
small amount of flour if needed.
Press dough into greased pan
(or you can try 'tossing' it like I did. Hope you
have better results than I did. I gave up
and stretched it out on my stone.)
Top with your favorite toppings!
Pizza sauce, sliced baby bella mushrooms, olives, pepperoni,
mild Italian sausage (cooked), chopped sweet onion and
red bell peppers,
and LOTS of CHEESE! Four cheese Mexican blend
Bake in a 425* oven on the bottom rack for 12-15 minutes.
It was soooo good, I even ate the crust (which I don't usually do).
Gentleman Farmer and I
ate. it. all!
We also had some cole slaw on the side and
homemade Italian Creme Soda's.
Into a tall glass with four ice cubes, pour 1/4 cup of sweet cream
(Mine was raw.
You can use whipping cream),
a scant 1/4 cup flavored syrup
(Mine was Raspberry)
(find these in the coffee section of the grocery store)
Fill with ginger ale.
Stir with a tall spoon.
Eat, drink, and be merry!
