Have you noticed by now that I really like pizza? Between my folks owning a Pony Express Pizza while I was younger, and then working in a Papa Murpheys while in college, it’s just always been there for me. It’s delicious, versatile, and EASY. Oh, and especially cost-effective if you make your own (yes, we order it out sometimes, sorry)!
Ingredients – Sauce
3/4 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup Brown Sugar, packed
1 tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp. Garlic, minced
1 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
2 tsp. Chili Powder
1 tsp. Paprika
1/4 cup Water
Directions – Sauce
Put all of the ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir well. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to low and simmer about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Preheat oven (and pizza stone, if using) to 375 Degrees F.
Roll out some premade pizza dough to make your crust. (recipe here)
Brush some olive oil along the edges of the circular dough, to prevent burning.
Spread the sauce evenly over the rolled out dough, about an inch from the sides.
Top with a layer of cheese (Mozzarella is what I prefer) – I do about 1 cup here, but base it on your own preference.
Add other toppings: Chicken (cooked) pieces, bacon bits, green onion dices, red onion dices, tomatoes…up to you!
Then top with another good layer of cheese – I do about 1 1/2 to 2 cups here. I like cheese!!!
