Who doesn’t love Pizza???
Nurse Frugal LOVES Pizza! It’s cheesy, it’s fattening, it’s delicious and I can’t get enough! The other day Mr. Bigtime and I experimented by making our own pizza. We had made calzones a few days prior and had leftover Bridgeford dough:
This stuff is INCREDIBLE! With one package, we made 2 large calzones and a huge pizza with leftovers (Nurse Frugal happens to LOVE leftovers, very convenient to take to work.) Getting back to the topic of pizzas: We threw everything on that bad boy.
Recipe for Mr. Bigtime’s Supreme Pizza:
Adapted from simply recipes:
Preheat oven to 450 and place pizza stone into oven
1-1lb piece of Bridgford Ready Dough defrosted
1. Prepare your toppings. Try not to add too much of any particular item, the crust will not be able to fully cook and crisp if there is too much on top.
2. Flatten the dough with your hands on a slightly floured work surface. Starting at the center and working outwards, use your fingertips to press the dough to 1/2 to 3/4-inch thick. Stretch the dough until it will not stretch further. Let the dough relax 5 minutes and then continue to stretch it until it reaches the desired diameter – 10 to 12 inches. Use your palm to flatten the edge of the dough where it is thicker.
3. Brush the top of the dough with olive oil (to prevent it from getting soggy from the toppings). Use your finger tips to press down and make dents along the surface of the dough to prevent bubbling. Let rest another 5 minutes.
4. Spoon the sauce, sprinkle the cheese and add the rest of the desired toppings 😉
5. Sprinkle some cornmeal on the baking stone in the oven. Slide the pizza off of the floured surface and on to the baking stone in the oven. Bake pizza until the crust is browned and the cheese is golden, about 15-20 minutes.
