We have pizza almost every single Friday in my household. As much as we love traditional toppings, I like to try and create something random and new every now and then. This one was born the night after we had perogies and sausage, and I had just the right amount of leftovers to whip this up. Throw some caramelized onions on too, if you don't have little gremlins at home like mine that turn their nose up at them :) You won't be disappointed!
My favorite pizza dough recipe: (this makes enough for 3 thin crust, or 2 regular crust pizzas). This dough also freezes exceptionally well, and I have it portioned out in my freezer. Just let it thaw at room temperature for a couple of hours before using:
-2 & 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
-1 & 1/4 cups warm water
-1 tbsp sugar
-2 tbsp olive oil
-1/2 tsp salt
-3 cups all purpose flour
Dissolve the sugar in warm water. Sprinkle the yeast on top, and allow to sit in a warm place for 5 minutes, until foamy. Add the olive oil, salt, and 1 cup of the flour. With a whisk, beat until smooth. Add the remaining flour, a cup at a time, until you have a soft dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Cover the dough and let rest in a warm place for about 25 minutes.
