Pizza is such a great meal to make… it is easy, pretty cheap, delicious and there are always leftovers!
My favourite recipe for the dough makes 3 good sized pizza’s…
- 2 1/2 cup of warm water
- 3 tsp yeast
- 2 tsp honey
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 3 tsp salt
- 5 1/2 cups of flour
Put the water in a large bowl (or the bowl of your mixer) and add the yeast and honey and let sit for about 5 min…
Meanwhile, mix the flour and salt together…
Add the olive oil to the yeasty water, mix then add the flour. The dough should be quite moist and a bit sticky. Knead until you get a soft and satiny dough… set aside in an oiled bowl, cover and let rise until doubled. (about 45 min to an hour.)
When the dough had doubled, divide into three pieces and prepare.
Tonight the boys all wanted pepperoni and cheese…We use a can of Garlic Tomato paste mixed with a can of water and some herbs to make the pizza sauce.
I wanted to make the caramelized onion and spinach pizza with peanut sauce that Annie had shared… and of course the beauty of pizza is that you can make your own…
Here is the Pepperoni and cheese…
