As I’ve said before, I sure miss the convenience of pizza delivery. Or when we lived in LaGrange, we could pick up D*mino’s Pizza’s less than a mile from the house. And the deals we used to get at D*mino’s…wow! I could feed all 6 of us (at the time) for less than 10$.
Here, the nearest American style pizza (Pizza H*t)is about 30 minutes from our house, and to feed our whole family would cost about 50$. It’s outrageous!
So, I made my first homemade pizza after moving to Portugal. Since that first pizza, there have been many more that have followed…..
some neighborhood kids have helped make…
some my own kids have helped make…..
What is it with kids? Anything that involves dough is so much fun for them, and when it involves real, true to life pepperoni that was given to us by Mimi…..well, that’s icing on the cake!!
Ahhh..the end result is a delicious pepperoni pizza. The kids think it’s even better when they’ve worked so hard to prepare it.
I’m going to miss them when school starts back.
1 pkg Yeast
2 T Sugar
1 C Warm Water
Mix together. Let sit till yeast has reacted and has spread over the surface. Then add:
2 T Olive Oil
1 t Salt
3 C All Purpose Flour
Mix, forming a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface and knead. Divide dough into half and then roll each half into desired shape. Makes two pizza crusts.
Bake at 350 until dough is done for your taste. Shorter for softer crust, longer for crunchy crust.
