Homemade Pizza...again!

I don't know how many times I've made homemade pizza, but it never gets old and it's so easy! Thought I'd share the recipe. I changed it up a little this time, like you wouldn't have guessed right?! Turned out amazing! What a great, cheap, way to have pizza on a Friday night!

Yeast-free Pizza Dough
2 cup flour (I made one pizza with white & one with whole wheat flour)
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
6 tablespoons olive oil

This time I tried it in my new mixer! I added all of the ingredients and then mixed it together. It was a tad bit sticky so I added just a little pinch of flour to be able to knead it out of the bowl without sticking all over my hands. The olive oil really helps keep it moist. So I flattened it into a cookie sheet and then added toppings.

Marinara sauce (or spaghetii sauce)
Cooked Italian sausage (about a pound but I didn't use it all)
Mozzarella Cheese

I love BBQ pizza but decided to be more traditional here. The Italian sausage was a GREAT addition. On the whole wheat pizza, mine, I did less cheese. It turned out great! The whole wheat one had a slightly different taste, but they were really most of the same. I made the crust a little thicker by not flattening them out to the entire cookie sheet. 

Ah-May-Zing! Having left overs for lunch today!

LOL - I love your pizza pans. They remind me of when I first moved out on my own. I had square pizzas for a long time. I love homemade pizza, Paul and I usually go for the works. The nice thing about it is you can put whatever you have on hand on the pizza. Maybe I'll be making pizza this week . . . Looks good!
