From Cooking Light Magazine. Once you know how to make the dough -- you can use your imagination and top them with any veggies, cheeses, or herbs that you wish. Bake at 475 degrees for 13-15 minutes generally. For topping ideas, see my recipes for Tomato, Basil, and Parmesan flatbreads, Zucchini, Walnut and Blue Cheese Flatbreads and Mushroom, Onion, and Cherry Tomato Flatbreads -- all from Cooking Light.
Came up with this one for pizza night...A hit with everyone in my family. Great with chicken or shrimp...whatever you have leftover. I think the balance of the savory pesto with the sweetness of tomato and caramelized onions turned out really nice. If you use a sweet onion such as Vidalia, you can omit the sugar. I used recipe #144195 with great results. Hope you enjoy!
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!!!!
This recipe is written to be prepared on a heavy-duty stand mixer although it may also be made by hand successfully. This is one of my favorite pizza dough recipes it produces a tender crust with lots of flavor. I have tryed many over the years, but this recipe is the one that comes close to a pizza restaurant-style crust, well for me anyway! The Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese are only optional I like to add in both for flavor, the prepared dough may be covered and refrigerated for 24 hours *after* punching down or may be frozen to be used later --- see my recipe#65641 *or* recipe#232188
I got this recipe from Jeff Smith, The Frugal Gourmet back in 1987. He made this recipe and ran it by Pizzeria Uno in Chicago and they smiled and nodded "It's almost as good as ours." This is easy, no roll recipe.
This pizza is designed for the "adult" pallet and a great way to turn leftovers into a wonderful meal for 2. Serve with a side salad and pepperonci for a delightful and quick meal in less than 30 minutes.
I like to figure out restaurant recipes so I can make my favorites at home (we have a 20 month old girl need I say more!) This is a yummy version that makes great leftovers.
Recipe #123659 makes two 9 by 13 deep dish pans or you can make 1 pizza and a small batch of breadsticks.
