Pizza Night!

Home Made Pizza hot out of the oven!

To get a really fresh pizza designed to your nutritional needs, you need to learn a few things.
Making pizza at home may be too much trouble for most people. But, making a pizza that fits your dietary needs is worth the time and effort.

The dough: Flour, water, salt, and yeast.
The classing toppings: tomatoes, cheese, olive oil and herbs.
Add or subtract as you wish!

The secret?  Spreading the dough on parchment paper and then sliding it on to a pizza paddle and on  a pre-heated pizza stone at 500F for 15-20 minutes. 
When the pizza is  done, slide the pizza by pulling the parchment paper onto the paddle.

What if you don't have a paddle?

Use an upside down cookie sheet! The trick is to cook the dough on a VERY Hot Stone.

Next time, I'll tell you how to save some dough in a jar for the next time you want to bake.
