    Default Easy Cheap Terrific Pizza (and variations)

    The Best Pizza Dough

    Want to make this extra EASY? Place dry ingredients
    into gallon zip loc bag; add water and oil; seal bag and
    knead with hands until dough is smooth ball; then knead
    about 20 to 30 more times. Open bag, transfer dough
    to oiled bowl, turn once to coat; cover; let raise about
    30 minutes to doubled in size.

    1 tsp. sugar
    1 T. dry yeast
    1 tsp. salt
    1 c. whole wheat flour*
    2 c. unbleached flour**
    3 T. vegetable oil (or olive oil)
    1 c. warm water

    Mix sugar, yeast, salt, whole wheat flour, unbleached
    flour. Add oil and water; mix thoroughly. Knead until
    smooth ball. Cover, let rest up to 30 minutes. Meanwhile
    make the pizza sauce, oil the pan with 2 to 3 T. oil or
    shortening. Preheat oven to 475.

    *or use 2 c. whole wheat flour and 1 c. unbleached flour.
    JUST to warn you: we tried this with all whole wheat flour
    and it didn't spread and cut as well as with at least one
    cup of unbleached flour.

    **you can use white flour if you don't have unbleached,
    they will work the same in this recipe. We just never buy
    white flour, as it is bleached with a chemical, and the
    residue of that chemical stays in the white flour.



    Simply Good Pizza Sauce

    1 can tomato sauce (8 oz.)
    1 tsp. garlic salt
    pinch of crushed red pepper (optional)
    up to 2 tsp. italian seasonings

    Mix well and let sit to meld flavors, until needed.
    Note: this can also be used as a dipping sauce
    for breadsticks.


    Pantry Pizza

    A very decent and cheap pizza can be made
    without mozzarella cheese
    , so we buy a huge
    jug of dry parmesan cheese and keep it in our
    fridge as a storage item for this recipe.

    Spread rested dough on a generously oiled 14" round
    pizza pan, or 11x15x1 pan; turn dough a time or two
    to coat both sides while spreading. Let rest 5 minutes
    after dough is spread. Spoon on sauce, and spread

    evenly with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle top evenly
    with 3/4 cup dry parmesan cheese. Bake (in preheated
    475 oven) on lowest rack 9 to 12 minutes. Cool slightly
    before cutting.

    Note: if we have some, we like to put a little bit of
    cooked sausage/onion, sometimes sliced olives too,
    on top of the sauce, then sprinkle the dry parmesan
    over all.


    Pepperoni Pizza

    Spread rested dough on a generously oiled pan of your
    choice (see above). Let rest for 5 minutes after dough
    is spread. Spoon on sauce and spread evenly with the
    back of the spoon. Top with up to 2 cups grated mozzarella
    over all (or can use 1 and 1/2 cups grated mozzarella, plus
    1/4 cup dry parmesan sprinkled on last). Then top with
    sliced pepperoni. Bake, in preheated 475 oven on lowest
    rack, for about 9 to 12 minutes. Cool slightly, dab top of
    pizza with paper towel to remove some of the extra oils.
    Cool slightly before cutting.

    Thumbs up Re: Easy Cheap Terrific Pizza (and variations)

    When I use pepperoni on a homemade pizza I separate the slices and fry for a couple of minutes in a non stick pan. I heat the pan then separate the slices while I lay in the pan by the time the bottom of the pan is covered its time to flip the slices. Then by the time the slices are all flipped, they are done and taken out with tongs from the side I started flipping. Takes only minutes to do and removes extra oil from the pepperoni and browns them slightly. Makes them yummy. Usually a few don't make it to the pizza

    Take care Jackie

    I make yogurt, cream cheese and mozzarella type cheese from powdered milk much cheaper than buying stuff at the store including Parmesan cheese! We make lots of pizza with whole wheat crust and we can our own pizza sauce up in pint jars each summer to use throughout the year. So good and we only buy meat for the pizza occasionally but usually use left over meats or just make cheese pizza.

    Great ideas ladies. Thanks

    Jac, I love pepperoni pizzas and also try to get some of the grease out first. I usually put it on a paper plate sandwiched between a few paper towels and nuke it. Wastes paper towels but saves washing the pan, some of mine don't make it to the pizza either. lol

    Whenever we make a pepperoni pizza we degrease the pepperoni's first by laying them on paper towels and nuking them for 30 to 60 seconds. Most of the ft goes into the paper towels so we can toss them away.
