This pizza started out with me cleaning out the fridge and finding that I had a little of this and a little of that but not a lot of anything. This just may have turned out to be the best pizza yet. Hope you enjoy!

How To Make 3-meat pizza

  • 1
    NOTE: You can use already made pizza crust, frozen or homemade pizza dough. Cooking time can and will vary depending on the pizza dough you select. Be sure to follow instructions for baking your pizza based on the dough you selected to use. I used a homemade dough and the directions are based on the dough I used.
  • 2
    Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • 3
    Stretch or press dough out onto a large pizza pan. I used a 16-inch round pizza pan. NOTE: I stretched this dough by turning in a circular motion as I let it hang freely from my (oiled) hands. I found the hard way that rolling out a dough will only make it tough.
  • 4
    Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce over dough. (NOTE: don't over do it with the pizza sauce or dough will be soggy). Then start layering your favorite toppings. I loaded this pizza with 3 meats, peppers, onions, olives, mushrooms and thinly sliced tomatoes and then topped with shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • 5
    Bake for 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown around the edges.

    DIRECTIONS FOR PIZZA DOUGH USING BREAD MACHINE: Place ingredients in pan of bread machine in the order they are listed.
  • 7
    Select 1-lb setting and then select dough cycle and start your machine.
  • 8
    Once machine has finished it's work, oil hands and stretch dough by allowing the dough to hang from your hand while turning it slowly in a circular motion. Once the appropriate size or close to size you need, lay onto pizza pan. Press edges out as needed to fit your pan. If you are already a pro with pizza and can toss, then toss your pizza dough. I've not mastered that yet!

    NOTE: do not roll out the pizza dough or you will have a tough dough.
