I was not sure how this would work out, but I decided to try it on a night that my husband was working late. I thought at least the kids and I would eat it even if it was bad. Boy was I wrong – this pizza was so delicious. My husband really liked it. He loved the crust. This was the first time I made this crust and it was really good. It was not fancy, but it was crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.
I used the crust recipe from here. I used my Kitchenaid mixer and let it do the kneading for me.
Here are the toppings:
Pizza sauce – about 1/4 to 1/2 cup (I did not measure)
1/2 lb. of ground beef to which I had cooked previously – I just reheated it in my cast iron skillet and added 1/2 cup of ketchup and barbecue sauce and about 1 1/2 teaspoon of dry mustard (kind of like my MIL’s recipe).
Lots of good shredded cheese
*Regarding the pizza crust I actually let it rise for about 2 hours because I was going to the gym and I just let it rise while I was gone. I also baked it on a pizza stone and I sprinkled corn meal on the stone as well.
Bake in a 425 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
I kept waiting for the crust to get brown, but it really never got brown so I just tested doneness by lifting up the pizza and tapping the crust with a fork to make sure it was crispy.
The results: So good – my husband and I loved it. The kids liked it.
