My favorite pizza is homemade. I prefer it over all the pizza chains - of course, I will eat their pizza but if I have the time I like making my own crust and experimenting with different toppings. Today I was in the mood to make some pizza crusts so we had pizza for supper.
I made whole wheat crust using a recipe I found on Pinterest. I have posted this recipe here.
Tonight I used the leftover Homemade Pasta Sauce (about 1 1/2 cups) that was in the frig and topped it with canned mushrooms, a few carmelized onions, strips of roast beef lunch meat and green olives. I would have preferred fresh mushrooms but since the sauce had canned mushrooms I figured I would save my fresh mushrooms for something else. We ordered pizza from Papa John's last week and I requested green olives - they don't have them! I love green olives on pizza! Oh, and all topped with lots of mozzarella cheese. It was pretty good if I say so myself.
The recipe for the whole wheat crust made the baking sheet and 6 personal pizza crusts. I use 10 inch pie plates to make the personal crusts. When they are cooled I put them in a gallon zip-lock bag with wax paper between and freeze. They are so convenient to pull out and just add some sauce and toppings for a quick dinner or lunch.
While I had the bread machine out I mixed up a batch of plain pizza crusts. The recipe made 8 personal ones which I will be sending home with Katie when she is here tomorrow.
