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.
I make the dough with 1/2 white and 1/2 wheat flour. It gives the crust more substance and a better flavor. Even my kids and their cousins prefer it this way. I like using olive oil in both the crust and the sauce.
Since we only eat one pizza for a meal, I have included two methods for freezing the second one, or you can freeze both for OAMC. NOTE: prep time does NOT include rise time.
This is "hands down" my best breadmaker pizza dough. It has never let me down it always turns out superb. This recipe is for a thick crispy crust that retains that melt-in-your-mouth pizza dough inside. Using your breadmaker makes this recipe very easy and very tasty!
Sourdough pizza is different. The crust will blow your mind. Don't try it unless you're prepared for addiction. It's best to use a fast-rising culture to produce just the right amount of leavening in quick order. This recipe is from "World Sourdoughs From Antiquity" by Ed Wood.
The comment I hear from everyone the first time they eat this is, "This is the best pizza I've ever had!" My daughters have old high school friends who still ask for this. It's very filling, so one pan goes a ways.
An easy to fix deep-dish pizza cooked in a cast-iron skillet. To be sure pizza doesn't stick, I give it a shot of non-stick spray. For pizza sauce, I recommend Steve's Recipe #8497 and I haven't used refrigerated store-bought dough since.
