Michael Louis Scott's Homemade Pizza

Picture below is pizza made with black and green olive tomato sauce, onions, and olives

 

Scott's Homemade Pizza recipe is:

Put one package of yeast in Welbilt Bread Machine

Three cups flower

One Tablespoon Sugar

One Teaspoon Salt

Three Tablespoon Olive Oil

One Cup Hot Water

Set Welbilt Bread Machine to French Bread setting and turn on.

When the machine quits it first cycle kneeding, turn it off and let dough rise for an hour.

One can use a 26 ounce jar of spaghetti sauce of one's choice or

While dough rises, made a thick spaghetti sauce with a

quart can of crushed tomatoes with peppers and onion in it

two tablespoons of chopped garlic

one chopped onion

8 ounce can of sliced mushrooms

teaspoon of garlic powder, teaspoon of oregano, teaspoon of basil, teaspoon of Italian Spices

quarter cup of white wine

and tablespoon of olive oil

and I simmered that sauce while the dough rose for an hour.

I shredded a half pound of  Mozzarella Cheese with a grater or use a food processor with grater blade.

Once the dough was ready I oil an 12 inch by 24 inch by 1 inch baking sheet with olive oil, and then floured my larger wooden cutting board which should be dry and larger than one's rolled out pizza dough. I then rolled out the dough to the full coverage of the cutting board which is several inches larger than the baking sheet with a rolling pin.  If one want to roll cheese into the edges of the dough, roll out the dought two to three inches larger on each side than the baking sheet, and when one forms the edges, roll the cheese into the edges.   I then turned the baking sheet upside down on the rolled dough and flipped the board over so the dough rested in the baking sheet. I then fold the edges over to make a nice thick edge.

The I put half the spaghetti sauce on the dough covering it thickly. I freeze the other half for the next time I make one.

I covered the sauce with the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly. I then sprinkled parmesan cheese thinly over it all.

I then sprinkle lightly olive oil over the cheese.

I place the pizza in my Convection Oven for about 25 to 30 minutes at 450 degrees.

I then let it stand for five minutes to cool and enjoy eating it.

One can also had more sauce or toppings or cheese to one's taste.
