Homemade Pizza


I love pizza and we have pizza once a week here. I am going to show you how easy it is to make it at home. I can make a cheese pizza for about $ 3.00.  Adding other ingredients will add to the cost.
I make my dough in my bread machine with a simple recipe,if you don't have a bread machine you can make you dough by hand and let it rise for an hour in a warm place.

                 Pizza dough recipe
        2 cups flour    3/4 cup warm water
         1 teaspoon salt    1 tablespoon oil
         1 tablespoon sugar   1 1/2  teaspoons yeast or one yeast package
combine all ingredients in bread machine and set on dough setting. If making by hand combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir until dough forms a ball. Knead on floured surface into a ball. Let dough rise in a warm place for an hour.
    When your dough is ready lightly grease a pizza stone or pan with oil.

Place your dough on the stone and form it with your hands into a circle. Then poke the dough with a fork all over the dough . These is so you dough will not be puffy when it bakes.







Then add a couple spoons of pasta sauce all over the dough and sprinkle on spices like basil and garlic. Put about a half of pound shredded mozzarella cheese all over and bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees or until cheese starts to brown. Then enjoy.



 I also made a breakfast pizza too using a dozen scrambled eggs,some green chile, and a half of pound shredded cheddar cheese. I put crumbled cooked bacon on one half also.
