I made pizza completely for scratch yesterday,it was fun! I was nervous because I have a baaad track record with yeast but it turned out really well.I used a Kansas City BBQ sauce recipe and I have no idea where I found it at.Here is a Kansas city recipe I found that similar to what I did use: http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/kansas_city_barbecue_sauce/
My recipe is a little more simple:
- Sift together 1/4 TSP of all spice,cinnamon,mace,pepper and 1/2 TSP of curry powder,chili powder & paprika into a bowl
- Stir in 1/4 cup of vinegar and 1/2 TSP of hot sauce 1 cup of ketchup and 1/3 cup of molasses.(which I did not use after realizing I had none.I did however add 1 TSP of sugar to counteract the spice.)
- Mix until well blended,its delish!
A few things about the crust:
*On the outer edge of the crust I brushed on some olive oil and garlic pepper.
*I would suggest a blind bake of about 10mins on the crust,just because smoked gouda burns easily and my crust (under the sauce) wasnt as done as the outer crust.
*The recipe will tell you to use 2/3 of a cup of water+2tbspn,you will need more.I used about half of a cup. Heres what I got:
Ok onto the not so nerve-wracking stuff!!The pizza toppings:I used a little less than a 4th of a white onion sliced it,seasoned it with olive oil,salt and pepper,uber easy!Put them in the oven on 370 for about 15mins until they loose their crunch.This is gonna sound crazy but I had a hard time not eating them right out the oven!
I then shredded a cup of smoked gouda ( my absolute favorite!!!!)and 1/2 cup of extra sharp cheddar cheese.Then everything goes on the pie.
Ok does this pizza look good or does it look gooood.I'm not bragging but I enjoyed it.
I know the pics aren't the best quality but blogging is new to me so hang in here with me!!
