Homemade Pizza

Could there be anything better?? My mouth waters just looking at the picture. MMMM!
And for those of you who think the broccoli would be weird- just try it! One time we invited friends over for dinner and I slipped up and mentioned broccoli and pizza in the same sentence- (I try not to do that), so they were concerned. When they took their first bite the look of surprise could not be hidden-- the lady said: "Wow, this is actually good." Then they admitted that when they heard there was going to be broccoli on the pizza they had plans to go home and eat "real" food. Hence the reason they brought such a large dessert when they came... they thought they would be starving and unable to eat our "healthy" food. Sheesh- some people! :-) LOL- don't worry Teresa- I still love you.

I use my Basic Roll Dough and add about 1 cup whole wheat flour.
Grease 2 large (approximately 15" round) pans, sprinkle with corn meal and roll the dough right onto the pan. I made these rectangle for quite a few years- so don't let that stop you!
Pizza Sauce:
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. Italian Seasoning
mix and spread on rolled out dough.

Put on your favorite toppings- ours are:
Finely chopped broccoli
sliced mushrooms
diced bell pepper
diced onion
(as a warning- shredded carrots add too much juice and the dough doesn't get done)
Top with a mix of mozzarella and cheddar cheese, grated.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes. Till cheese is completely melted and both cheese and crust are starting to brown.

Pepperoni: $2.50
Cheese: $4.
Tomato sauce: $.35
Broccoli: $1.
Pepper: $.50
Mushrooms: $.50
Meal Total: $8.85
or $4.42 per large pizza
