Guest Pizza

I bought this t-shirt for my daughter, it seemed appropriate.

Teddy has not been well.  She has had horrible diarrhea and hasn't eaten much in 3 days. I have no idea what is wrong.  She has spent most of her time laying on her spot on the floor in front of the fan. See the fan blowing her fluffy butt?  Believe me, this is a very good thing these days!

I made pizzas for my house guests.  Here is the dough recipe:

Pour 2 cups of water into your mixer bowl.  Add 2 T. sugar, 4-1/2 tsp. rapid rise yeast, 2 T. olive oil and 2 tsp. of salt. Add 5 cups of flour and knead until you have a smooth ball of dough.

Cover and let it rise until doubled, about 1 hour.

After it rises, divide it into thirds and spread each piece out onto a piece of parchment paper.

Spread the dough with pizza sauce.  Top with some mozzarella cheese.

I added some green pepper from my garden and some mushrooms.  Then sprinkle it with some provolone cheese and some grated parmesan.  I also sprinkled on some Italian seasoning. I added some strips of pepperoni too.

Bake them at 500 degrees for about 15-20 minutes.

The crust should be crisp and the cheese should start to turn golden.  It also shouldn't be blurry!
