Dad’s Pizza

During my life, my Dad did not do a lot of cooking but he is known for making a few dishes: Onion Rings, Easter Bread, Blueberry Blintzes. Now I am finally getting around to posting about his thin crust pizza. He makes it more times a year than his other known specialties.

He does not have an exact recipe.

Mix about 1 1/2 cups white flour, a little olive oil, salt and pepper in the bowl of a stand mixer.

Heat about 1 cup of water to 120 degrees. Add 1 tsp yeast and a pinch of sugar.

Pour the water / yeast mixture into the flour mixture.

Use dough hook to knead it a little.

Proof the dough in a warm oven for 1.5 hours.

Push dough into pizza pan.

My Mom makes the tomato sauce. Often they have some in the freezer.

He adds sauce, garlic and onion powder, mozzarella cheese and whatever toppings they want (usually mushrooms and pepperoni). Sometimes he adds fresh chopped herbs or dried herbs.

Bake at 425 for 20-30 minutes. We like the pizza crispy.
