This recipe compiled while an Italian chef was making pizza in my kitchen.
It took a lot of experimentation by me to get this right and to write the final recipe.
Add your favorite toppings
My kids loved sliced hot dogs
(Use GOOD ones!)
No need to let bread rise.
Bake any left over dough in a bread pan.
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 green pepper, chopped or sliced
1/4 cup cooking oil
2 15-ounce cans tomato sauce and bits
1/2 can water
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
about 2 tsp salt
some pepper to taste
1 tsp garlic powder
few sprinkles oregano
few sprinkles parsley flakes
cheddar cheese, grated
mozzarella cheese, grated
1 pizza dough recipe made and set aside
See Pizza Crust recipe in this same area
toppings: Pepperoni, hamburger, sausage, black olives
Saute onion and green pepper in oil until tender. Siphon off the oil. Add the rest of the ingredients. Cook on a medium heat until oven is preheated to 450 degrees.
Take 1/4 of the bread dough. Roll out and fit into a lightly greased pizza pan. Add some corn meal to coat the pan, dumping the excess. Put 1/4 of the pizza sauce on an uncooked pizza crust. Add toppings. Don’t use too much sausage or hamburger or you’ll end up with too much grease on the pizza.
Bake on middle (or top) shelf until bubbly. About 12 minutes. Remove pizza from oven, add a handful of grated cheddar cheese and at least another handful of mozzarella cheese or more. Return to oven, but this time place the pizza on the lower rack to brown the crust. Bake about another 12 minutes.
If making more than one pizza (I always had to make 4!), prepare the next pizza while one is baking on the top rack and when you add the cheese to the first and put it on the lower rack, put the fresh pizza on top to begin the first 12 minutes of cooking. When pizza number one is done remove from oven and set aside, add toppings to number two, return number two to oven on lower rack, add pizza number 3 to top rack. Cut and serve pizza number one. Prepare number 4 and continue as above.
