Submission  for sand badge pizza bb!

I did make the dough from a mix not from scratch but it wasn't a frozen base.

We have gluten free peeps and I didn't have everything to make some crazy rice flour mixture but I did have bobs red mill gluten free crust mix.

I made the crusts and let my kids and family dress their pies!
Mine had sausage pepperoni olives green pepper mushrooms ham bacon  and cheese lots and lots of cheese!

Staff note (Mike Haasl) :

That looks lovely, but the crust does have to be from scratch (ingredients measured and assembled by you) per the requirements. Sorry!

For last nights pizza I followed the recipe here (https://www.kcet.org/shows/americas-test-kitchen-from-cooks-illustrated/recipe-one-hour-pizza) for the dough. I couldn't find semolina flour and tried corn meal. It worked out ok but I'll have to keep tweaking. I had to add extra liquid to get it to a workable state.
For the sauce I used some I canned earlier this summer.
I think the pizza turned out well, I will try again.

I was gonna make pizza for lunch and saw this thread pop up, sooooo....

First you gotta make some flour.


Then you gotta smash out the dough.


Then you gotta dust the pan with corn meal. You gotta. It makes it taste better and not stick.


Was canning tomatoes, so took the last little bit of tomato puree and added some random Italian-ey sounding spices and some corn starch to thicken it a little real quick.


The secret ingredient is Sriracha sauce. Not enough to tell what it is, but enough to know something's there.


I like my toppings what I call "sous le fromage"


Not to brag (well, maybe a little) but this rocket oven/grill/griddle/stove/"whatever else you wanna make it" makes the best pizzas.


You gotta crisp the bottom. You gotta. It tastes good, and it provides structural integrity so your slice doesn't take a nose-dive and dump your toppings in your lap.


You just gotta have some homemade wine with some homemade pizza. It just makes sense.


This project is Pup approved!


Yes, he got some! You just gotta! (He's a good boy!)

Tonight was pizza night. I made my husband's favorite, pepperoni and black olives.

My crust recipe is my basic bread recipe, memorized so long ago that I don't remember where it came from.

Ready to mix the crust.


1.5 teaspoons baking yeast
1 cup whey (because I have a lot of whey from cheesemaking)
1 tablespoon honey
3 cups unbleached white flour
1.5 teaspoons salt
and my secret ingredient, a gravy ladle of the olive oil I store my feta cheese in, seasoned with fresh rosemary, thyme, and oregano.

Feta in herbed olive oil (makes a yummy crust).


After the dough is mixed, kneaded, and is rising, I assemble the rest of the ingredients.

About 8 ounces of grated mozzarella.


Ready to make the pizza.


Pizza stone is preheated in 425 degree F oven,


then sprinkled with corn meal.


Spreading the sauce on the dough.


Cheese and other toppings next.


Then it's into the oven for about 15 minutes.


Sliced and ready to serve.


Not undercooked and not burnt! Yay!

Recipe is rough.

We've got about 2.5 lbs of unbleached flour
2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil,
1.5 cups of water
4 tbsp of sugar
A teaspoon of fleischmanns yeast.

Let sit for about an hour, it should bond decently fast.

For toppings, I added the marinara, a couple dashes of Sriracha, then Mozzarella. Follow that with some mushrooms and polska kielbasa, and a tomato, cut into slices and tossed on all of that. Then another layer of cheese, and it's capped off.

This time I'm not salting it, largely because I want to see the difference in the dough.

That's getting tossed into the oven at 425F for 20 minutes. Why so long? Don't panic, this is a pan pizza cooked in cast iron. It'll be mostly evenly heated, so once the dough on top is cooked the dough on bottom should be mostly done.

I opted to toss the crust inwards instead of draping it over the pan lip, mostly so it'll hold together better. This is a deep pizza, so having more structure on the edge isn't a bad idea.

Images are in the Imgur gallery, but I can move them over to Permies if needed. They're not formatted right for this site, so they take up the entire screen. They look great on Imgur though. I'll be putting the album link up in a moment, and adding the other pictures once it comes out of the oven.

Here's the gallery. Now if it'll behave and let me add another that'd be nice.

Here's the finished Pizza because Imgur breaks when I try to do anything.

Here's it after some finishing on the stovetop. The fresh tomato always makes it annoying to cook evenly. It was delicious.

Do you have a picture of a slice so we can see if it is cooked through/ not burnt?

I had a nice pizza for dinner! And I made photos, so I can get this BB.

Link to the recipe I used:  https://permies.com/t/93692/kitchen/Cauliflower-Pizza-Crust
I love cauliflower pizza crust, not because it's gluten-free, but because my teeth don't hurt from it. The cheese and herbs in this recipe make it taste yummie too!


Crust going into the oven.


Baked crust topped with tomato sauce, (more) cheese (including 'blue cheese'), leek and tiny yellow tomatoes (the last two are from my own garden).


Pizza is ready.


Slice of pizza on my plate. You see it isn't burnt and I was able to get it on my plate, so it is not soft (but cooked all the way through).
