For this badge bit, you will make a pizza. They can be "normal", paleo, vegan, gluten free. Paul's "polydough" is probably the easiest way to make pizza. Here's how Paul says to make his polydough pizza:

My husband loves his bacon crust meatza/pizza, which is made with a woven bacon crust. Not sure if that qualifies for this badge bit, though, as there is no dough. But, the actual cooking of the pizza is the same.
Here's some great permies threads with pizza recipes:
Note: with most gluten crusts, like Paul's Polydough, the crust does not need to be prebaked. With most gluten-free crusts (including meatza), the crust needs to be baked first and then sauce and toppings applied, and then baked again.
Your toppings and sauce can be to your own liking. For example: a vegan pesto pizza, a alfredo chicken pizza, a classic margarita pizza, a pizza with ALL the topings. Deep dish, calazone, and thin crusts all count, too.
To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- one pizza
- you make the pizza from scratch, including the crust
- not burnt
- dough is cooked
To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
- Link to/post the recipe you used (especially the part about the crust)
- pic of the crust being made
- pic of the pizza getting it's toppings put on
- pic of the completed pizza and a slice of pizza
o showing that the pizza is not burnt and it is cooked all the way through
Pizza made with homemade dough, from scratch, not in the bread machine:)
Pizza dough: flour, salt, yeast, whey (because I had some leftover from cheese making, otherwise I use water), some oilive oil. Let rise and punch down twice.
Toppings: homemade pizza sauce from home canned tomato sauce with herbs and garlic, homemade mozzarella cheese, slces of green pepper, mushrooms, grated cheddar cheese, copa and prosciuto. Added basil and feta after taken out of the oven.
Baked on baking stone in a very hot oven.
