After making rolls using Rhonda's recipe, I then thought I ought to use her recipe, with yeast this time, for making pizza dough. And once again, I was inspired to be creative after seeing the mouth watering pictures of home made pizza over at Vickie's family blog. Take a good look at the above picture. That picture is from her post on their Friday Nights Pizza. Her family has such a sweet ministry, and sharing pizza is one way families are invited to join them for some wonderful Christian fellowship. I just love to hear or read about families who live with old fashioned values. Makes me long for the good old days when it was safe to trust people, ya know? Now, about the pizza......isn't the picture amazing? That olive pizza would have to be one of my favorites! Boy, a picture like that sure did set me to work! I'm always tweaking recipes, so while I did ask Vicki for her recipe, which was graciously shared on her blog, I did make a few minor changes and/or additions.
Mind you, I did use a roll recipe for pizza crust, and it came out pretty good. Here, I decided to try using Mexican crumbly cheese just because I had some, and needed to use it before it expired. I also used lots of sauce:
And fresh out of the oven:
This one does have mozzarella cheese, but I'm afraid I used less sauce.
Now, I think they don't look anywhere as good as Vickie's pizza. And the cheese topping might have toasted just a wee bit too much. I'm not afraid to show that sometimes my culinary attempts are not perfect. But I can attest to these pizzas being very good and tasty. Works for me! It made for a nice inexpensive dinner. Turns out the roll recipe can also stand in for pizza dough! How versatile!
That's why I copied it on to my homemade tags like I do with all my favorite recipes!
