Pizza Time !!

It's pizza time !!!  Take a look at Mommy's Kitchen, step by step pizza making. The way I make my pizza, is the way the store on my block used to make it when I was a child. Italians make great pizza in New York !! I always looked forward to a great slice of pizza from them. 

First, you need to make a leaven.
You will need one envelope of yeast and warm water.
Add yeast in a bowl add 1 glass of warm water, then add flour with a pinch of salt.
Add just enough flour make sure it's sticky on your hands. Let it rise for
about an hour.  When the leaven is  ready just keep adding water and flour. Dough is ready when it doesn't stick to your hands. Make sure it's pliable.

 085

088  This is how it will look one once you roll it out.

Once you have buttered your pan you place your rolled out dough on it  Saute peppers and onions  together for about 10 min. 

Roll out your dough and  butter your pan and then begin your creation. Cut 1 onion and 1 green bell pepper , saute in 1/3 cup of olive oil for about 10 minutes. Add salt,  pepper and oregano to taste.

For the sauce, I buy ready made sauce that has basil in it ( makes all the difference)  and I jazz it up. I add 2 cups of sauce in a bowl,  10 tablespoons of  olive oil, 1 teaspoon of oregano, salt and pepper to taste. Stir and it's ready to spread. Then place your toppings,I also add mushrooms then I top it off with Gouda cheese, it's great for making pizza. Cook in the oven for about 25 minutes or until the crust has color. Cook at 350 Fahrenheit 
 I buy ready tomato sauce but  I jazz it up a bit.
