Making Pizza at Home

Ingredients

  • Three garlic cloves, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 pizza doughs in mounds bought at pizzerias or at your grocery store, buy the type in a mound that need to be rolled out; they taste better. Look for elasticity, so they will roll
    nicely. How to tell if elastic or not, when thawed they do not remain in a perfect circular shape.

Pizza Utensils

  • Pizza stone
  • Pizza peel
  • Pizza cutter

Making Pizza Sauce

Heat olive oil in a large frying pan at medium heat for 1 minute. Add chopped garlic. Saute for two minutes; do not brown. Pour in crushed tomatoes. Bring to slight boil, then simmer. Add oregano. Can use right away or let simmer for an hour.

Heat pizza stone in the oven at 475 degrees for 15 minutes.

Roll out pizza dough. Roll out to diameter of your pizza stone. Place rolled out pizza stone on counter, if making more than one or place on pizza peel to prepare for transfer.

This recipe makes four 15” diameter pizza pies.

Spread sauce over dough evenly to desired amount, usually 3/4 cups of pizza sauce. Sprinkle toppings, starting with cheese (Shredded is mentioned, but if in a pinch slice thinly, actually I slice, more than I shed.) and then other toppings. Below are a list of pizza topping ideas for your pizzas.

Place uncooked pizza onto pizza stone by gently sliding from pizza peel. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until crust on bottom is browned. Check for browning with the tip of your peel. When browned, remove pizza stone and place on surface that accepts hot pans.

Let cool for three minutes and then cut with pizza cutter. Enjoy!
