My favorite pizza hands down will always be the loaded veggie.
So, the other night middle son says, "Hey Mom, how about one of your homemade pizzas? We haven't had that in awhile."
I answer, "Okay but it will have to be veggie, is that alright?"
"Sure, that will be good." Middle son is always so agreeable. The easiest of all my three sons.
I pulled out the veggie drawer and it was full of pizza toppings waiting for the construction of a great supper. I have made homemade pizza for years. I will give you my dough recipe, it is the most worn out recipe in my recipe box.
Homemade Pizza Dough
1 pkg. (1/4 oz.) active dry yeast
1 tsp. sugar
1 1/4 cup warm water (110-115 degrees)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. salt
3 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (here I used 1/2 of this amount as wheat)
In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in water; let stand for 5 minutes. Add oil & salt. Stir in flour, a cup at a time, to form soft dough. Turn onto floured board; knead until smooth and elastic, about 2-3 minutes. Place in a greased bowl (I use olive oil here), turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in half. Makes 2 -12 inch pizzas. Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.
Toppings can be your choice.
I have used: the above pasta sauce, black olives, onions, green peppers, spinach, cherry tomatoes cut in half, fresh Italian parsley, basil, and mozzarella.
You put the toppings on top of the cheese. I used to put the cheese on last but, the toppings don't cook as well.
Middle son and last son had no complaints. They really liked this sauce. That was the first time I ever tried this sauce.
