Simple, kids can make it

Directions:

Cut partially frozen dough into how many pizza you want. I can make 12 minis or 2 large thin crust or 1 deep dish from the loaf. Let thaw before starting below.

Brown ground beef, drain well. OR dice up ham, quickly brown that. Shape out your crust to thickness, put on greased pan, cornmeal the bottom if you want. Bake the crust on 350 degrees F for about 8 minutes to set it. Then put your toppings on, stick back in and bake at 400 degrees F for 10 or till cheese melted/golden.

You can either make your own dough or when your supermarket has it on sale buy multiple packages (like 40 cents per lb) and freeze all but one. Place the dough in a slightly oiled bowl & cover with a clean dishtowel and let it rise.

Preheat your oven to 475. Then take your pizza stone & lightly sprinkle it with cornmeal.

Roll your dough on the stone & lightly grease the edges with olive oil. Spread 1 to 1/4 cup pizza sauce on the dough & then add whatever you like; i.e, onions, peppers, pepperoni, mushrooms, add 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese over the veggies & then sprinkle oregano & basil on the cheese. Now sprinkle about 2 T. shredded parmesan cheese.

Pop into the oven & cook about 12 minutes or until done.

Happy eating.

Let's face it, there is never enough time in a day to get things done we'd like to. One way to share time with kids is to pick one night a week that they have to make the meal. It teaches them to plan ahead, get familiar with items in the kitchen, and teaches them to be responsible. It's great when mom or dad give them a great big smile at the dinner table. Teaching them to read a cookbook is not a bad idea either.

Pull-apart pizza is a good starter recipe. Cut biscuit dough into bite size pieces and place into greased baking pan. Spread pizza sauce and cheese on top (extra toppings if desired) bake at 350 degrees F until cheese is bubbly, then cool on a platter. To eat, just pulls it apart.

This pizza may be adapted to be vegan (as long as the vegan eats yeast).

Ingredients:

  • Pizza dough
  • Red sauce (you can just use any spaghetti sauce for this).
  • Toppings: Pineapple, green pepper, etc..
  • Mozzarella cheese (optional)
  • Corn meal

Make pizza dough in to a flattened circle.

Place dough on pizza spatula that has corn meal on it. Or on a pizza pan with corn meal on it.

Place a blob of red sauce in the middle, then proceed to smooth it out towards the edge leaving approximately 3/4 inch at the edge.

Now place mozzarella cheese covering everywhere there is sauce, if you are omitting the cheese skip to the next step.

Place your toppings on the pizza, remembering the pizza will be cut into triangle so you want to place more toppings on the edges rather than the center.

You will want to use a pizza stone to place your pizza on in the oven. Before putting the pizza on it you will want to place some corn meal on top of the stone so it will be easier to remove ( add corn meal on hot stone right before you are ready to put the pizza on it otherwise it could burn.

Instead of a pizza stone you can also use a pizza pan.

The pizza stone needs to be preheated with the oven, the pan does not.

Preheat oven 425 degrees F.

Once preheated place pizza in the oven for 15 minutes then check if the bottom of the crust is brown if not leave in a little longer.

When crust is lightly brown take out of the oven, cut and serve.
