I realized yesterday when I was looking for my pizza dough recipe on my blog that I’ve never posted it! I just posted the link to my cousin’s wife’s blog…I got both the dough and sauce recipes from her. So easy and so yummy!!

Pizza Dough

1 Tbsp. yeast
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 cups warm water

2 Tbsp. sugar
3 Tbsp. oil
1/2 Tbsp. salt
4 cups flour

Sprinkle yeast and 1 Tbsp. sugar over water. Let bubble (about 5 min.). Add 2 more Tbsp. sugar, oil, salt and flour. Let rise about an hour. Spread on pizza pan. Add toppings. Bake at 450 for 15-20 min.

This makes enough for 2 pizzas or 1 pizza and breadsticks. You can use some whole wheat flour in place of the all purpose flour.

Pizza Sauce

1/2 medium onion, diced
2-4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 Tbsp. EVOO
1 large can crushed tomatoes
1 Tbsp. basil
1/2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. parsley
(or any seasoning you like)

Sautee onion in oil in a pot. Add the garlic. Cook a couple more minutes. Add tomatoes and seasoning. Cover and simmer over low heat 5-6 min.

    I have had Melissa’s recipe marked since she posted it to try out at home and still haven’t tried it. The few times I’ve made homemade pizza since then, I’ve used the ABin5 dough for it. I might try this on Saturday if it works out. I hope it does b/c homemade pizza sounds so good! Yum!
