Happy Thursday guys! Can you believe the month of May is “running” it ends next week! Wow…. So my family and I will be going out of town, we are going to another state for Summer (work + vacation), so for the rest of the month we’ll be on the road, we all enjoy embarking on a road trip and that’s what we’ll be doing in the next coming week or so. For this period that we will be out of town, I won’t be posting as much as before ( I already scheduled some posts) but be rest assured that as soon as we are back (by God’s grace in August) the normal posting would resume just bear with me. I need some time to rest before school resumes in August even though I will be taking one course online but it won’t be as stressful as taking 15 hours credits.
Back to the business of the day, It’s almost weekend and having some pizzas for the weekend is not a bad thing, right? My family loves pizza and anytime I have a chance to make it my kids always love it. I posted the Homemade Pizza Dough and Homemade Pizza Sauce so I will continue with how to make the pizza itself. Depending on how thin or thick you want your crust you can make 2 pizzas out of the dough recipe. Use any toppings you love on pizza, olive, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, beef, Philly steak, pepperoni and so on but don’t overcrowd your pizza with toppings.
I used cornmeal on the baking pan to give the crust some texture you would get when you buy, also if possible or if you’re using a pizza stone (I used a flat pizza baking pan) preheat before placing your dough on it, I preheated my pan but if you can’t do it just skip it you will end up with good crust pizza, if you’re going to preheat the pan please be very careful. Let’s bake!
- Pizza dough
- Pizza sauce
- Chicken (chopped)
- 1 Cup Pineapple (diced)
- 1 Cup Grape Tomatoes (half)
- 2 Tablespoons Olive oil (or your choice)
- Grated Mozzarella Cheese (as much as you like)
- 2 Tablespoons Cornmeal
- 2 Tablespoon flour (or more)
- Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
- Grease your baking pan with oil and sprinkle the cornmeal over it, shake to allow the cornmeal to get to all the pan.
- Dump a pizza dough on a floured surface.
- Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out.
Pick up the dough and gently stretch, you can hold your hand into a fist and place the dough over it, if you can, throw it up or just use your second hand to stretch the dough out.
Place the stretched dough onto the pan, brush oil over the dough.
- Add the pizza sauce and spread over the dough leave some space on the edge of the pizza.
- Add cheese
- Add chicken
Add the tomatoes (seasoned with oil, salt, and pepper) and pineapple or any toppings you’re using.
Pop it in the preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese bubbles or the cheese melts and the pizza is fully cooked.
Let it cool and slice.
Serve and enjoy.
