My Pizza and some links to share!

I made pizza this week and it was so yummy!

I love it when the produce store has the big ripe red peppers in season!

My crust is very simple...
just flour with a dash of salt,
add yeast that has been softened in warm water
until you have a dough you can roll out.

Then add whatever meat and veggies you like
and LOTS of cheese of course!

I bake my crust for a few minutes before I add the ingredients
and it comes out crispier and less soggy.

So it's a pizza dough crust,
tomato sauce with some garlic powder and oregano sprinkled on top,
then parmesan and romano cheese,
cooked meat
( I cook Jimmy Dean Sage sausage and drain it good,
I even microwave the pepperoni for hubby,
on a paper towel for 8 seconds
and then mash out all the grease!)

After about 10 minutes on 425 degrees, I add the cheeses
(I use cheddar and mozzarella...don't grate the mozzarella, slice it)

Melt the cheese in the hot oven and then turn the broiler on to brown it.
OH MY! I have made hundreds of these pizzas over the years
and they are always so great!

My friend at the Freckled Hen gave us a great French Bread Recipe...

Oh my gosh your pizza looks good. I never make them homemade but need to start. I like them best with no meat but that doesn't go over with the rest of my family. We could each do our own!
