Here it is, just for you. My secret family pizza recipe revealed! While you're reading it, go ahead and pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
1 cup warm water
1 pk. dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons oil
2 cups flour
(add 1 cup additional flour)
Sprinkle yeast into warm water and stir in sugar, salt, and oil. Add flour (2 cups) then gradually add remaining flour. Knead well and form into a ball.
Pour 1 tablespoon of oil in bottom of bowl and put ball of dough in, turning once to coat with oil. Cover and let rise in a warm place til doubled.
Grease pizza pan with crisco (not oil) and spread dough to edges. Brush dough with melted garlic butter all the way to the sides.
Here is where it gets fun...my secret is: I add whatever I have/want to/feel like! Start with a sauce (I use store bought sauce and add fresh crushed garlic, oregano, basil, rosemary and crushed bay leaves). Spread over crust. Add the secret ingredients (whatever you like): I use sliced red, yellow, and green bell peppers, sliced onions, sliced mushrooms, black and green olives, pepperoni, pineapple tidbits, bacon, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, etc. Add whatever you like. Bake in 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until done.
I hope you enjoy this pizza recipe that has been in our family for generations. Ok, maybe just two generations...but they all love it!
Great list. H5
