My hubby makes the best crusts and I make a pretty wonderful sauce.
Let me go find the recipe. I'll be back shortly.

Talking

Paul's Crust
2 1/2 cups bread flour
1 tsp. Salt
1 package yeast
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup HOT water (110 degrees)
1 teaspoon brown sugar.

sorry.. I don't have the instructions.. he just kneeds it for awhile and then lets it rise. Sometimes ONCE... sometimes TWICE depending on how hungry we are.

My Sauce
Feel free to add more or less of each item.

5 cloves diced garlic
1/2 onion diced
1 can diced tomato
1 can tomato sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons Greek Oregano
1/2 teaspoon fennel
1 -1 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
dash salt

Dice onion and garlic and saute in EVOO
Add tomatoes and tomato sauce
add Oregano and fennel and sugar and salt
Let simmer until flavors all meld together.

If you like your sauce "unlumpy" you can throw the tomatoes, garlic
and onion into a food processor before or after cooking.


also check out this link. It has some good ideas.

I like a pesto pizza from a semi-local place, it has tomato, basil and parmesan and a philly cheese steak pie with steak-ums and american cheese. That place is sadly out of business. If I make them at home I like a french bread pizza with all the veggies (no olives) and peperoni.

the classic margherita is great. I also like the works with fish. (I am not fond of pinapple on pizza or in jello tho) A great one is calamata olives, feta cheese, and prosciuto. yum!

I like a lot of meat on my pizza but will eat just about any kind - tuna is one thing I can't abide on pizza.

I really like dill pickle slices on my pizza!

Not a big fan of the pineapple inventions, or
fresh tomato slices, but most anything else is great.
Thin crust, please! :)

My favorite is just a plain cheese pizza for the most part. But when I feel like any toppings, I like black olive slices, onions, anchovies, and mushrooms. Not necessarily all at once though.
