Growing up, my dad always made pizza for us on Sunday night. It was tradition. The dough was made from scratch. The veggies he used were grown in his yard. The only item that came pre-made was the pizza sauce.Yesterday, we made our own, with just a few modifications.
Put the dough in an oil covered bowl and place it in a warm, non-drafty place for an hour so it can rise. We put it in the oven.
Here’s how it looked after an hour.
Roll the dough into a ball, and let it rise another 45 minutes. We weren’t ready to make the pizza yet, so after the 45 minutes, we wrapped the dough in cling wrap and put it in the fridge for a couple hours, until dinner time.We rolled the dough out onto the pizza stone and sprinkled it with sugar.
Next, add the pizza sauce. Then, we chopped up the veggies for toppings. Here’s the onion.
We loaded the pizza. We ended up putting onion, yellow pepper, jalapeno, mushrooms, black olives, pepperoni, cheese, and pizza seasoning.
We put it in the oven for 10 minutes, flipped it, then cooked it 10 minutes more.Ooey, gooey, and incredibly cheesy.
On a completely unrelated note, we finished the frame gallery in our office. Here it is in all its glory.
U of I’s Quad, goldfish, a bird printed on a vintage Chicago map, a Marimekko print, and some random images we found and liked. An eclectic mix, huh?
