*warning: Just by making this recipe you can't make pizza that looks like this. Sorry. That requires a beautiful outdoor clay oven, and a handy dad.
so pizza. Our family eats a lot of pizza. Growing up our pizza Fridays were practically famous. Everyone's friends would come over just for the pizza every weekend.
Like many things our pizza recipe has evolved over the years. But this recipe is the staple, what our pizza would taste like back in 1998, when we didn't have a clay oven and a culinary genius dad (I mean, we have the same dad, but now he just has more time to study culinary genius things).
So here we go
1 pizza crust
1 tbsp yeast
1 cup warm water
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp oil
2 1/2 to 3 1/2 cups flour
dissolve yeast in water.
add salt, oil, and 2 1/2 cups flour. Mix then slowly add more flour if needed.
Knead till smooth and not really sticky. Place in a greased bowl and let rise till doubled.
bake in a 450 degree oven with favorite toppings! Double, or triple as necessary.
... or quadruple.
2 cans tomato sauce
1 can tomato paste
mix together, add spices to taste
Toppings: at least our favorites
So you know, just put it together like a pizza
