Lazy Susan | Foods We Love | Homemade Pizza

The kitchen sink homemade pizza recipe.

A bunch of bags of pizza dough from Trader Joes. Seriously, buy a lot. They are $1.09 and only make about a 12″ round.
Trader Joe’s has several different kinds of pizza dough, plain, whole wheat and garlic herb (which I will buy next time).
A relatively large flat working surface for dough.
Rolling Pin, or your hands.
Lots of pizza sauce. Canned Sauce or Classico brand is pretty good.
Barbeque sauce – We love Sweet Baby Rays.
Trader Joes already grilled plain chicken.

The toppings are the best part of making homemade pizza!

Lots of veggies. Pick some. Chop them up. Make it colorful. Get creative.
Here are some ingredients I wish I had (next time)
Sweet Basil, sliced tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, turkey sausage, artichokes, roasted garlic, mushroom .
We had Turkey Pepperoni.
Sweet onion and red onion.
Black olives.
Salt and Pepper
Olive Oil.
Lots of Mozzerella Cheese.
Gouda or another smokey type cheese.
Spices. I use Penzy’s Spices, mostly their garlic salt and red pepper flakes.
A Pizza Stone. Read directions for your particular one, you may need to preheat oven with stone.
A pizza cutter, and large pizza oven spatula.

Make sure you set out the pizza dough 20 minutes before you start kneading it.

Take out ball of dough and add a little flour. Don’t over flour or over knead the dough as it will taste too dry and flaky.
This part was a lot of fun as the kids really loved making their own pizzas. We stretched the dough to make
rough circular shapes. We should have added a little olive oil and cooked the crust slightly before putting
toppings on it.

Add sauce and toppings. Cook for 10-12 minutes.
