The beer adds just a hint of fragrence and flavor in this quick pizza dough. We found this great recipe in the King Arthur Catalog. Another great one from King Arthur Flour. We modified it a bit to match the things we have in our pantry. Please note that the prep time includes the rising time for the dough.
I like this recipe because it's simple and uses ingredients I always have on hand. I got it from my dad, I can't say for sure where it originally came from, but maybe from a Betty Crocker cookbook. This dough also works well for making meat pies.
This pizza sauce recipe was given to me as a wedding present, written on the inside cover of a pizza cookbook. It is thick, saucy, spicy and delicious. I'll never use anything else on my homemade pizzas. I like to double or triple it and put it in Ziploc bags in my freezer.
Whenever you need pizza quick, this is the recipe to go for! It is not a traditional yeast dough crust...it actually starts out with a batter that turns into a crust. It is extremely easy to prepare, very good and you could probably have it done and on your table before the pizza parlor could :)
It doesn't get any easier than this. This is Nick's basic pizza sauce and the base for Pizza Margherita. Use the best quality tomato sauce and paste available. Normally I like to make this kind of thing starting with fresh tomatoes, but of course, it has to be summer and you have to get your hands on the tomatoes. I promise, you can't get this flavor from hot house tomatoes. Freeze what you don't need or use it to start spaghetti sauce.
