Classic Pizza


Date: 1/13/2012

Recipe: Pizza sauce:

Pizza dough:

Toppings: sauteed onions, green peppers (I sauteed them because I prefer them that way and it’s easier for Annie to eat but some prefer them raw and crunchier), mozzarella cheese and pepperoni

Modifications: No modifications from either recipe linked – we have used both before several times – this is my go-to pizza dough and sauce recipe and you can modify the toppings to your heart’s content. I probably should have added a bit more cheese to this version.

Time to table: Since the dough and sauce were prepped beforehand, about 15 minutes of actual prep. The pizza dough takes 1.5 hours to rise whenever you make it, and it’s cooked at 500 so however long your oven takes to preheat to that temperature.

Servings: 3 adults, 1 toddler

Ben: Like

Erin: Like

Annie: Like

Notes: The past few months, we’ve had takeout or delivery pizza far too much (partially because we left our pizza stone at a rental cabin and needed to replace it – thanks Mom & Dad for the Christmas present!), and I’ve gotten used to that – sadly, my own versions just don’t quite cut it for some reason. I do love this pizza and will certainly make it again, but it’s just not the same as delivery. Not enough grease I guess 🙂
