Homemade Pizza

# 77 That’s what we had for dinner the other night. My husband made the crust from scratch. I think it turned out really good - thin and crispy just as I like it… I helped with the toppings. We made three different kinds. One was just cheese pizza (with lots of extra cheese on it), I put some pepperoni on the second one, and the third one was pictured... That last one was really a mix pizza. We just kind of put whatever we found in the fridge. The toppings were spinach, broccoli, mushrooms, shrimps, and mozzarella cheese. I guess that’s the beauty with homemade pizza – it’s really free style, we can put whatever toppings we want and however much or less we want each topping to be... What toppings do you like on your pizza?

I love home made pizza and I too like thin crispy crust. I only like for toppings anchovies and black olives and mushroom

Oh... I don't know too many people who likes anchovies as toppings... Most I know avoid them... I don't mind them myself... When I order seafood pizza, they would ask me if I want the anchovies and I would say 'yes'...

@sishy7 Oh you are unusual sishy..no one or at least not many like them here. It is my Sicilian heritage that my Father always made pizzas like that.

If we had some black olives and green pepper then, I'm sure they'd end up on the pizza too...

The pizza looks so delicious. We normally put tomato paste, chicken/beef, pepper, olives, sweetcorn and mozzarella cheese.

that looks super good. I usually use a tortilla and simply put whatever I want on it then bake. I haven't done that in quite a while.

Yes, flat bread is good as well @sishy7 I love melting a lot of cheese on some flat bread then dipping it in tomato sauce as I eat it .... or salsa when I have some.

@rebelann That sounds good too... I'll remember that the next time I have some flat bread... melted cheese and salsa remind me of nachos - add sour cream while we're at it, no?

I am usually an everything-on-it pizza . . . but not when we do it at home (too many ingredients to chop up just for my own pizza ). Did you guys make the sauce from scratch too?

I think he used pizza sauce from a bottle but added some other ingredients or seasonings (don't ask me what exactly they are... ). I do know he added some different ingredients for the pizza pictured, one of them was soy sauce, I think...

Well, your first two pizzas sound good, but I would have to pass on the third... (I am really not a fan of pepperoni, either, but I will eat it if there is nothing else.) My favorite pizza toppings are Italian sausage and mushroom, but Pretty won't eat mushrooms so I very rarely get my choice of toppings. Usually, if she chooses, we end up with Taco pizza or Canadian Bacon and Cheese pizza. (I will eat those, so it is not like I starve when we order them. I have even quit crying now when she only orders those types of pizzas! LOL!)

Taco pizza... hmm, that's a new one to me and sure sounds interesting... What toppings do they have? Do they have crunchy tortilla, or some taco sauce, maybe?

@sishy7 It is regular pizza crust covered with a layer of bean paste, browned hamburger over that with cheese, lettuce and tomato and then Doritos Nacho Cheese Chips broken over the top. (Lettuce, tomato and chips are added after the pizza cooks.) They give us taco sauce packets to put on the pizza when we get it home. We get these pizzas at Casey's General Store. Casey's is a convenience store in the southern and western U.S. (I have only seen it here and south of us plus all the way in California when we were there several years ago. I have never been further East than Pennsylvania, so have no idea if it is on the East Coast, too. I don't remember seeing any Casey's stores in Pennsylvania.) Edit to add: Pretty has made a few Taco Pizzas here at home. She doesn't like making the crust, though. So we only buy it from Casey's now.

@DaddyEvil Oh, I don't remember seeing Casey's in California... First time I heard the name of this convenience store, actually... In the frozen section of some supermarkets down here, they have pre-made pizza crust... I don't know how good they taste, but it seems like a convenient thing to have when we want to make our own pizza at home without worrying about making the crust from scratch... The Taco pizza sounds just like how I imagine it would be... I'll remember to try that next time we make pizza... I don't think I've seen it offered in any of the pizza stores we've been...

For my pizza a very simple topping, tomato sauce, mozzarella and basil (Pizza Margherita), I like the crust and I do not want to kill the taste with too many ingredients, but I am Italian, so I am partial to pizza.

Simple is good! One of my sons prefer just pizza sauce and cheese on his pizza... That's why we made the first one just a simple cheese pizza...

@LadyDuck We also only use mozzarella for pizzas... But we put a good amount on it... Then my son would still sprinkle some parmesan on just before he eats his piece...

That looks delicious! I like making homemade pizza, because as you said, I can put as many toppings on it as I want with as much of them as I want, and I don't have to pay extra for them! I do like the local pizza from the Italian place, though. Theirs seems to taste different than ours. Someone said it is the oven they use, because they have the specialty pizza oven.

PA! How I've missed you so! I'm so glad my pizza can lure you all the way here so I can see you... Oh yes, I bet a specialty pizza oven would make all the difference in taste... My husband said that too - he dreams of having a traditional pizza oven which sounds just like an old-fashioned and hard-to-use oven to me...

@sishy7 I missed you, too! If you offer me food, then you can lure me back from just about anywhere! My memory is not so good at the moment (I am assuming that it is due to extreme stress), but I think I was talking with MysD about the pizza ovens a couple months ago. I do think that they are more old-fashioned and harder to use, but they sure do make the pizza taste better.

Home-made pizza is a favourite in our house, although I never tried shrimp or prawns on it. I use the dough setting on the bread machine to make enough dough for 3 decent-sized thin and crispy pizzas. I make my own pizzaiola sauce for the top, too. Delish!

Yum! If I have a bread machine I'd probably be more confident to make the dough providing it gives me exact instructions of what to do step by step...

@sishy7 If you can make a cake from a packet by following the instructions, the dough-making bit is as easy as falling off a log.

OOOoh that looks yummmmmmy ! Instead of using the typical red tomato sauce, mom and I use an olive oil, garlic and onion based sauce that is loaded with steamed broccoli, steamed cauliflower, spinach, mushrooms, and lots of different cheeses baked to perfection
