Yummy, made at home deliciousness. And cheap too!
First, start by making your own crust. For a two person sized pizza, I used 2 cups of whole wheat flour, a dash of sugar and salt, 1 pkg of active dry yeast, 1/2 cup hot water, ground spices (I lean towards oregano, garlic powder and basil, but be creative!), and olive oil. Kneed with your hands (be sure to take off your rings! this stuff it sticky!!!) And roll it on out!
Then throw that sucker on the pizza stone (or cookie sheet) and roll up the edges to give you a nice crust. If you want to be bad, brush the crust with melted butter and sprinkle a little garlic powder. I didn’t on this one, and it was still good!
Add a layer of sauce. I cheated and just used Tomato Basil Garlic Prego.
Then add your toppings! We had diced onion, diced yellow pepper, olives and peperoncinis!
Don’t forget to say cheese! We used an Italian blend with a little Pepper Jack for a kick!
Then, bake at 375 till the crust is a nice golden color, and all the cheese has melted.
Oh, we also pre-baked some chicken. Which we sliced up and put on top during the last 5 minutes the pizza was in the oven.
Goes great with beer and football. Or a movie.
Time: 20 minutes to bake chicken; (prepare crust and toppings while chicken bakes); 17 minutes for the pizza!
Cost: Using veggies you already have, this pizza can cost as low as $8!
