Easy Pizza Ingredients

  • 2TBSP sugar + 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 package of yeast (2 1/4 tsp dry active yeast)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion salt
  • 1 1/4 cup water (divided)
  • 3 cups flour
  • pizza sauce
  • can of pineapple chunks
  • stick of pepperoni chopped
  • onion chopped
  • can of mushroom pieces
  • shredded mozzarella cheese

Easy Pizza Directions

Dissolve and let stand for 10 minutes: 1 tsp sugar and 1 package of yeast (2 1/4 tsp) in 1/2 cup lukewarm water.

Then add: 2 TSBP lard, 2 TBSP sugar, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp onion salt & 3/4 cups lukewarm water. Mix.

Then add 3 cups of flour. Stir /knead briefly until combined. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.

Then dump out of bowl, knead a few times, shape into ball and cut in half. Spread each half on a small cookie sheet (greased with lard).

Here I am going to warn you that “spreading” is easier than it sounds as the dough will rip. Honestly, as you’re spreading it you will think, “this isn’t enough dough – it’s paper thin” but really it is enough and it will rise in the oven. Trust me!

Then spread with pizza sauce and top with chopped onions, canned mushroom pieces, canned pineapple chunks and a chopped stick of pepperoni.

Bake at 400 deg for about 20 minutes or until crust is done (lightly browned on bottom) then remove, add mozzarella cheese then return to the oven for about 3 minutes or until cheese melted.

Cut with scissors and eat! Yummy!

Thankful for Pizza Memories

I have fantastic memories of making pizzas growing up and for them, I am thankful! We lived in a small northern town where buying pizza was super expensive. Mom would make the dough, and prep the toppings and we would anxiously dance around, waiting for our turn to decorate the pizza. {Yes, it would have been easier, faster and less messy to do it herself but I’m thankful that she let us “help”}. We’d spread on sauce and put on the toppings piece by piece, eating some {and inevitably getting told to stop eating all the toppings!}. Mom would cut it up with scissors and we’d have a feast but the best part was eating it the following morning for breakfast when the pineapple was cold and juicy on the pizza. {I’m actually not a huge fan of it on a hot pizza}.

Now grown, we make home made pizza occasionally. With the cost of cheese and pepperoni, it’s actually cheaper for us to buy the Pizzaville special but it’s not as fun. My littles enjoyed “decorating” our pizza (and getting told to stop eating all the toppings!)and of course, we enjoyed it even more this morning for breakfast!
