Once the dough is done mixing, you DO NOT have to wait for it rise – just divide the dough into 2 dough balls.
I use a rolling pin to roll out the pizza.
Place the dough on the pizza pan (spray with cooking spray first) and poke holes with a fork all over the dough – this will prevent it from puffing up in the oven.
I pre-bake the dough in a 500 degree oven for 9 minutes.
When you take it out, the crust will be lightly browned. Add as much sauce as you like.
We have been getting Italian sausage links from Whole Foods. But any sausage you like will work. You can either buy it in links and remove the casing, or buy it in bulk.
Next we like adding green pepper and onion
Add the mozzarella cheese – the Cabot cheese and sprinkle either Italian Seasoning on top or a combo of Oregano and Basil Seasoning.
Place it back in the oven for 9 more minutes.
After 9 minutes, I will slide the pizza off the pizza pan and cook it the rest of the time directly on the oven rack.
Bake for another 8 minutes – and it will come out looking like this:
Slide the pizza back onto the pizza pan and let rest for 5 minutes for the cheese to set up.
I hope you try this if you’ve never attempted making pizza at home.
If you are not sure about making your own dough -most pizza places sell their dough – or Trader Joe’s also sells the dough for .99 cents a bag.
