Pizza Dough $3.30 (with the refrigerated breads.) Follow directions on the bag of taking it out and letting it sit for 1/2 hr at room temp. You'll let it sit 10 more minutes after shaping it too. See below for pizza dough tips so you don't do what I did!
1/4 lb. ground spicy sausage (new seasons case pork from local farm/ pacific village is not reared with GMOs.) $0.75. Cook in skillet on medium, dividing with spatula into fine crumbles until there is no pink in the meat. Just a few minutes.
After the pizza dough has rested for the first time, you're ready to divide it in half and prepare it for two pans.
Pizza dough tip: Get it in one try and leave it alone if its not perfect! Split it in two for two pizzas. Its so much more manageable than one giant one would be. Stretch the dough out by pulling the sides and rotating to make a disc evenly so it doesn't get too thin or tear. When its the size of a medium plate, put it on a baking sheet and push the dough to flatten out from the center like you were pressing down a pie crust into a pan gently. If you have a hole, patch it from some dough on the edge you cut off. DO NOT roll it back up to start over because it totally changes into something unworkable like rubber! Don't do what I did and try to add water. Rolling pin? Nightmare. One of my pizzas was so easy.
While you're letting it sit for 10 min. per the directions, make your sauce:
1 can organic tomato paste mix w/ 1 can of water $0.50/can in cases of 12.
Stir in some spices you got in the bulk section for pennies at N.S. or in bottles from Winco when they have their amazing sales on spices:
1 1/2 tbsp Italian spices ( or 1 heaping tsp ea. thyme, oregano, rosemary & basil)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp onion powder
optional: crushed red pepper. grind it fine in a dedicated hand-held coffee grinder by shaking up and down. How much? We used 1 cayenne, about a heaping tsp. We ground up the rosemary with it while we were at it.
Spread on two pizzas- If you have extra it makes a nice dipping sauce.
1 small block of the new Provista organic mozzarella cheese (for $2.50!!) grated, put on pizzas
Slice an organic yellow squash into 1/4 inch slices. Yum. Slice up a little tomato too. They total $1.50.
Add squash and sausage to pizzas, tomato now or after it cooks.
Bake at 425 until you're satisfied. Ours was 20 minutes.
It was handy to just cover the whole pizza on the pan with wrap after it cooled and put it in the fridge. 2 days later we warmed it up at 300-350 for 10 min and it was delicious. What a nice surpro
