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.
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.
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.
This is a quick and easy side that can complement almost any meal. I served this at an Italian themed Christmas Dinner with Recipe #120737, Recipe #228972, along with veggies (zucchini and asparagus) and a green leafy salad. Everyone went crazy over this bread, even the kids. From "Every Day Italian" on Food Network.
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!!!!
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.
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.
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.
My mom made these when I was a child and now my daughter and I are making them together too. Very fun meal to get the kids involved! Would be perfect for a birthday party - a mini pizza party where you can pick your own toppings!! This is also a great idea for daycares - the kids love being involved in making their meals.
Easy to make pizza bread starting with a loaf of French bread or you could also use kaiser rolls or other bakery buns. Great for lunch or dinner, or cut into smaller slices for appetizers. You can bake it in the oven, or cook the hamburger first and make it on the barbecue. You can change the seasonings to taste and add other favorite pizza toppings if you like. Times given are for the oven method. Additional time is required to cook the hamburger for the barbecue method.
