Move Over Dominoes-Here Comes "Mominoes!"
We took a poll on Instagram-What types of meals are you looking for? The answer was a resounding-easy weeknight meals! Well, we got you. This pizza recipe is probably the simplest of the lot. No rise time, minimal ingredients, you can make it vegan veggie, or not- and it's egg, dairy, soy, nut friendly.
2.5-3 cups of unbleached white flour
1 packet yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
1 tsp. sugar
1 cup warm water (between 110-115 degrees)
2 TBSP olive oil
1 tsp. salt
1 TBSP corn meal (optional)
3/4 tomato sauce
4 oz. cheese (we used shredded white sharp cheddar-you pick yours)
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese (we shredded it ourselves)
Roasted broccoli ( or any veggie of your choice)
Preheat oven to 450
Place yeast and sugar in a large bowl
Heat water for one minute in microwave
Pour water over sugar and yeast and wait until it becomes creamy and bubbly
Whisk ingredients together after yeast has bloomed
Add salt, and oil and whisk
Start adding flour one cup at a time. You may need more than 21/2 cups if dough is sticky-don't worry this dough is very forgiving.
Dough will start getting difficult to stir-use hands and knead until bread is smooth and pliable.
Roll dough out into a square (we used a 15x11 sheet pan) You don't have to roll it out to that size as you can press/stretch a lot of it in the pan. Watch our video on how to do this.
Make sure dough is even across the pan
Poke holes with a fork all across the dough.
Pre bake for 10 minutes
Prepare sauce and cheese
We pre roasted broccoli -approximately 2 cups-put it on a sheet pan with some olive oil and salt and roasted for 30-35 minutes on 425.
Caramelized onions-we sliced a large onion, placed in pan with olive oil and salt and sauteed onions until soft and dark brown (about 15 minutes)-totally well worth the effort.
Let crust cool for 5 minutes and then spread the sauce evenly.
Strategically place veggies/onion onto the crust (at this point you could bake your pizza without the cheese if you are vegan or dairy allergic)
Sprinkle cheese evenly across the entire pan
Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and crust is golden brown.
