I am kicking myself for not taking a picture, but trust me - it looked beautiful.
For dough, I always use my sisters recipe - quick, easy, and works perfect for pizza dough.
- Dissolve 1 package of active dry yeast in a little under 1 cup of warm (not boiling, tap works) water. I usually let it sit for 5-10 minutes in a smaller bowl.
- In a large bowl mix 2.5 cups flour (bread flour works well), 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of salt, 2 teaspoons of white sugar, and the yeast mixture.
- Work it all together, then cover the bowl with a paper towel and let it rise between 30 minutes and an hour. I usually get impatient and use it at 30 minutes.
- Flour your hands, so the dough doesn’t stick and flour the surface - then plop down the dough and work it into the shape you want your pizza to be.
For sauce, I went quick and easy and used a can of tomato puree, a can of crushed tomatoes, a little olive oil, a lot of garlic, oregano, basil, and salt/pepper. I let it simmer on the stove for about 20 minutes, so it could all work together. I caramelized the onions at the same time - they taste so great this way with the goat cheese!
Work out the dough into a pizza shape, toss on the sauce (the extra freezes so well!), top your pizza and put in the oven for about 20-25 minutes at 350. So delicious!
