Pizza is a Friday night tradition at our house. It’s always something to look forward to and I find that because we’re home every day, specific meals on specific days helps mark the days of the week. From time to time, I have someone ask me about my recipe for pizza, so here it is. 


My pizza dough recipe is basically the same one I use for bread! The only difference is the oil and the flour. For bread, I use butter and half whole wheat flour. For pizza, I use all unbleached white flour, and the oil I use is my secret ingredient! 
  • 1.5 tsp baking yeast
  • 1 cup warm liquid of choice (I use water or whey)
  • 1 tbsp sweetening (I use unbleached sugar or honey)
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1.5 tsp. salt
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons *oil or melted fat
Mix yeast in warm liquid and sprinkle with sweetening. Let proof (work until the yeast begins to bubble and rise).

Yeast proofing
*Here’s the secret ingredient. It’s the herbed olive oil that I store my feta cheese in. (Directions here). The oil takes on a wonderful herby, cheesy flavor that makes delicious pizza crust!

The extra virgin olive oil I store my feta cheese in.

Mix yeast with remaining ingredients and knead well. Allow to rise at least once until double in bulk. Meanwhile. . . 


The pizza I’m showing you here is Dan’s favorite; pepperoni and black olive. 

Homemade goat mozzarella.

The sauce is made from my garden tomatoes,
but the other ingredients are obviously not!


Preheating the pizza stone to 425°F (220°C)

Sprinkling the hot stone with homegrown home-ground corn meal

The rolled out dough goes onto the hot stone, then the sauce.

Shredded mozzarella next.

Then toppings.

Bake for 15 minutes.

Enjoy hot!

I do try to mix up the toppings every week. My favorite is sausage and mushroom. 
This one is sausage, black olive, and mushroom. The
mushroom was a foraged puffball from the yard.

Show of hands; who else does Friday night pizza? Any special tips you’d like to share? Recipes? What are your favorite toppings? I’m interested!
