My mom made a variation of this when I was a child. It's great for a quick weeknight dinner, and your kids will love it. The original recipe called for Swiss cheese cut into strips, and then placed like spokes on a wheel, but I think it is better with shredded cheddar covering it all. Try it either way.
Under orders from the teenagers in the house, I created recipes for their favourite take out breadsticks and dipping sauce. The bread sticks are very easy to make and the recipe has been posted separately as Bread Sticks - Pizza Hut Style
My boyfriend and I had the most fantastic pizza in Italy during our travels, even the takeaway stuff is fantastic. Through trial and error (and expanding waistlines) we think that I've found a good approximation of a home-made pizza sauce we had in Cassino when we went down there for the 60th commemorations last year.
My DH loves those frozen Tony's Pizza Rolls....I'll eat them too, but....what exactly is in them?? We probably don't want to even know! These are MUCH better and at least we know what we're eating!! Buy extra sauce for dipping if you'd like, but they really don't need it. Also, add/omit any ingredients you like or don't like. Make them to your own taste of course. This is what we like in them.
I found this in quick and easy style cookbook a long time ago. It literally takes only 15 minutes from start to finish to make! I made changes that my family likes and this is what I ended up with. My family really likes to make these as well and eat them. The kids have tons of fun making their own.
Ever wonder what to do with the leftover meat toppings you didn't put on your pizza? Well, I had some italian sausage and pepperoni left over and this is a recipe that I came up with that I wanted to share with you all. My italian sausage was already cooked but if you wanted to use raw, you could omit the butter and oil and cook the onion, mushroom and garlic with the sausage.
Adapted from a recipe in 'The Australian Women's Weekly's Cooking on a Shoestring'. If you aren't vegetarian and you can stretch your shoestring to include bacon, a couple of rashers of bacon tastes great as an additional topping. I've added a couple of extra herbs to the original recipe that had only the rosemary and, if you're making this, I'd encourage you to use whatever are your favourite herbs. I've included the pizza dough from the original recipe but I've also made this with Recipe #4892, which I found when checking on Zaar before posting this recipe. It also makes a deliciously crisp and flavoursome pizza base. The preparation time below includes the 60 minutes standing dough when making the dough.
Over the past few years there's been several public searches for the best pizza in America and believe it or not, Phoenix Chef Chris Bianco is the hands down winner! There's only five ingredients needed to make a basic pizza dough! So what does he do differently? According to Chef Bianco, it's all in how it's handled. The following recipe is ideal for most pizzas, even great for grilled pizzas! Read the directions carefully before beginning. If you're ever in Phoenix, Bianco's Pizza is a must!
UPDATE: The only way we bake pizza today is on the grill using this innovative pan . . . http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002OOMSA/ref=oss_product .
An absolute must!!!!
Wish I could remember where I picked up this recipe [over 30 years ago], but I can't! In spite of the detailed directions, it is easy to make & great-tasting, to boot! And, I'm one of those who can thoroughly enjoy a simple cheese & sauce pizza! Preparation time does not include the 2 hours it takes for the dough to rise.
Use your favorite pizza crust and sauce recipe or use recipe#65641 Not to worry if you do not have two oven racks, you can switch positions after the first baking. Adjust the sauce and cheese amounts to taste. Prep time does not include making the pizza dough or sauce. Feel free to use your favorite cheese blend in place of the mozzarella.
