Pantry Raid #17: Homemade Pizza

With a homemade whole wheat pizza crust recipe (from my sister, Krisan), I had plenty to top it off with. ….like the last of the browned ground beef from the freezer from Pantry Prepping Day. I also got some “stow bot” (that is, Ragu) spaghetti sauce, already had shredded mozzarella cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, pepperoni slices, fresh sliced mushrooms and Parmesan cheese.

Even though there were only three people eating, I made the full crust recipe that makes two large pizzas.

Dissolve 1 package dry yeast in

1 cup warm water
1 Tablespoon granulated sugarground beef on pizza
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
Stir to mix thoroughly then add
1 cup white flour
Cover and let rise until about double. Punch down, divide and make crust by spreading onto oiled pizza pan. (Bake at 400˚ until toasty and freeze to use later.)

For immediate use, spread out crust then begin layering. Lightly coat unbaked crust with olive oil, spread spaghetti sauce evenly over crust. Top with desired amount of mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, ground beef (which has been browned with garlic and onions), pepperoni slices, mushroom slices and Parmesan cheese. Bake at 400 about 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is browned.

  1. Always make my own pizza – so much nicer (and cheaper too)!

      Agreed! I might not consider all homemade pizzas delicious. In parts of Italy the pizza is like the “trash can.” They have their crust and then pile whatever is left over onto it-noodles, veggies, meat without sauce! Then again, it might not be too bad.
