Pizza Night

I found a pizza recipe that I absolutely love and thought I would share. It was quite easy to make, it just takes about 2 hours to let the dough rise, but it was well worth the wait. I managed to make my own sauce with whole canned tomatoes & spices; we used up left over vegetables in the fridge, and had a quite lovely dinner. Really! I was going to take a picture of it but we were all so HUNGRY that I didn't get a chance. One other thing I did was substitute 1/2 of the flour with wheat flour (an easy compromise between Joe and me)...and it was delicious. Try it! You don't have to pay so much for pizza, and it is a million times healthier!!!!!!!!!

Homemade Pizza Recipe


Pizza Dough: Makes enough dough for two 10-12 inch pizzas

1 1/2 cups warm water (105°F-115°F)

1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) of active dry yeast (check the expiration date on the package)

3 1/2 cups bread flour (can use all-purpose but bread flour will give you a crisper crust)

2 Tbsp olive oil

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon sugar
