Tasty Tuesday – Homemade Pizza

After 3 years of marriage I FINALLY found the perfect homemade pizza. The secret? The crust. This summer I tried making one in my bread machine and YUM, YUM, YUM!!

Bread Machine Pizza Dough

Makes 1 pound of dough

2/3 c. lukewarm water

1/2 t. honey or sugar

1 t. salt (or a dash more)

1 T. extra virgin olive oil

1 3/4 c. bread flour

6 T. whole wheat flour

1 1/4 t. yeast

Add together in order listed and select dough cycle on breaf machine. When dough cycle is complete, deflate dough and use!


My Favorite Homemade Pizza

Grab your supplies: Olive oil, garlic, mushrooms, fresh mozzarella, and capicola and fresh basil

Get your dough and either toss or push it out onto a pizza stone. Here’s my first time attempting to toss. This picture makes it look kind of impressive, but I definitely need some practice:)

Press out dough evenly. You can make the edges a little fatter if you want to. Brush olive oil on the pressed out dough

Coarsely chop your mushrooms and saute with olive oil and garlic

While that’s cooking, pour your sauce on the crust. If you’re extra domestic, feel free to make your own. I usually use Ragu:)

Spread around with the back of the spoon

Slice your fresh mozzarella (this is another key ingredient!!)

Put the cheese on your pizza

Add the meat

And mushrooms

And a little bit of fresh basil if you’ve got it on hand

Bake at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and crust is done (you can put a toothpick through the fat part of the crust on the outside to make sure)
