Canadian Bacon Pizza
Prep Time: about 20 mins Rise Time: 45-60 mins Cook time: 6 and 12 -15 mins
Oven Temp: 475
3 cups flour
1 cup milk (or water)
1 tsp dry yeast
2 tbsp olive oil (or veggi oil)
1 tsp salt (optional)
1 tsp sugar (optional)
Heat the milk (or water) on the stove or in the microwave to around 120 degrees. I just use my finger to try and guess the temp. It just needs to be a bit hotter then room temp. Add the yeast. Let it sit for 8-10 mins. Add oil, salt, and sugar. Stir. Add flour a cup at a time and mix well. Knead dough for about 5-8 mins. Add flour if it's too sticky. Pat into ball, place back into bowl, cover and let rise. If you pat the outside of the ball with oil it will keep it from drying out.
Knead risen dough. Roll out into circle or rectangle depending on the size of your pan or pizza stone. Pick a place to start on edge of rolled out dough and fold the edge inward. Continue rolling the edge in as you move around the edge. This creates your crust.
Pre-bake your dough for 6 minutes. Take out and use a fork to poke any air bubbles.
Add toppings. Cook for 12-15 minutes.
Sauce - I use my favorite canned spaghetti sauce or you can make your own
Mozzarella cheese (about 1 and 1/2 cup) - or more if you like
Ham - diced (we had ham for Sunday dinner, and I used the left overs)
pineapple - I use canned pineapple
These toppings are of course for a Canadian bacon pizza but you can put whatever topics your family likes best.
Hope you like,
