I make my own pizza sauce and can it. Since I live in a trailer in Florida I don’t have a canning pantry. I keep my jars in boxes tucked away a round the house. The past couple of weeks I have going through the boxes to see what I have left. Usually I use up the pizza sauce in a year and I thought I was out. To my surprise I found a dozen 1/2 pints that was hiding. Now I can make pizza which will add one more dish to what I can serve in this period of rising cost of food. I posted how I made my pizza sauce a couple of years ago.
- 1 package dry yeast or 2 1/4 teaspoon
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil or melted shortening
- 2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
In a large mixing bowl and warm water(110 degrees), yeast and sugar. Let stand for 5 minutes or until yeast activates. Add oil then add in flour that has been sifted with salt. Stir until a soft dough forms. Let rise for 30 minutes. Punch down and spread on 12 inch pizza pan that has been covered with foil or parchment paper. Use hands to pat the dough into place. Slide paper or foil off of the pan with the pizza dough on it. Place pan in oven while oven preheats.
Preheat oven 400 degrees
Top pizza crust dough with favorite sauce and toppings. When oven and pan is hot, place the pizza with paper back on the pan in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes or until pizza is brown on the bottom . Let rest on the pan for 5 minutes before cutting into slices.
