PostHeaderIcon Pizza, that’s what’s for dinner!

We had Pizza the other night and I thought I post about it. There is just something about Pizza, it reminds me of Family and good times.  I am still searching for the perfect crust recipe but until I find it I am using Barbara Kingsolver's.
It uses a bit to much yeast so if you plan ahead you can get away with less.
Since our oldest son moved to the states in the Fall there is currently only three of us living here.
My husband and 15 year old son eat b.i.g pizza’s so this recipe makes three pizza’s for us. Two big ones and one small one for me.
If your family is big on sauce and likes lots and lots of toppings put your crust on some parchment paper or you will end up with a big spill trying to get the pizza in the oven.
I have a superpeel and love it, it avoids that spill. I tried with the regular peel and flour or cornmeal but with as much topping as my guys place on it, it was hopeless until the superpeel.
Top your pizza with your favorite pizza sauce.
I make a sauce using crushed tomatoes, Italian herbs, garlic powder, salt and pepper. You can cook this ahead, freeze it and always have some on hand when the call for Pizza gets loud.
Than have each family member top their pizza the way they like it.
I can make two pizza’s at a time in my oven. I bake one on a pizza stone and the other on a hot cookie sheet.

I love homemade pizza! My favorite dough is from Giada DeLaurentis. You should give it a try!
