Concentric Fame and the Coreless Onion

Have you noticed famous people live concentric, insular, lives that restrict their ability to relate to real people or to find footing in the common dreams of Jedermann?  Yet, somehow, the famous believe they represent us all from their suffocating cocoon of Yes People and manufactured adoration.  The famous spin in circles within circles with no direction or grounding.

Pizza

by Joyce Kohl

Pizza Source: Go Inside™
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.

Servings: Ingredients:
4 Pizzas

 

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

corn meal

Directions:
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
