Best Pizza This Side of Heaven
|2 can(s)||tomato sauce (5 oz)|
|1/2 tsp||garlic powder or 2 cloves crushed fresh|
|1/2 tsp||onion powder|
|1 tsp||dried oregano or 2 tsp fresh chopped|
|1 Tbsp||hot pepper flakes|
|1/2 tsp||salt, less if tomatoes are salted|
|1 Tbsp||freshly ground black pepper|
|2/3 c||warm water|
|1 3/4-2 c||flour ( or more)|
|8 oz||part-skim mozzerella cheese shredded|
|toppings such as onions, green peppers, mushrooms, etc.|
Everything is about the crust. This takes some time, but the results are so worth it you will never make another type. Beware: if you make it, your family will never allow take-out pizza or frozen again!
Check after 12. Edges should be starting to brown. Remove and if you wish, using a metal spatula, slide under one end and the pizza will slide out, onto a cutting surface. Let stand for 10 minutes and then slice up as desired. And then be prepared for the best pizza you have ever had!
