Personal Pizza

This is something new I decided to try. Ordering pizzas, although convenient, is pricey. (If you insist on ordering the pizza I have found Dominos pizza often has the best deals. They have a 2x Tuesday deal where you can get 2 large pizzas for the price of one...this only works for carryout though. If you live on campus or close it, there's a dominos on St. Johns Bluff so all in all this doesn't pose as much of an inconveneince.)

I was browsing through Publix's website looking for their weekly cupons and buy 1 get 1 free deals when I came across buy 1 pizza sauce jar, get 1 free. They also happened to have buy 1 package of shredded cheese, get 1 free. Pizza sauce + mozzarella cheese = pizza night!!

There are several options for buy pizza crust. I got the Martha White Pizza Crust Mix package that you just add water and oil to but there are also some that come completely premade or frozen so you only have to heat it up. Just depends on what quality you want and what your price range is.

Personal Pizza
-mozzarella cheese
-pizza sauce
-pizza dough mix package
-1/2 cup HOT water
-1 tsp oil
-favorite toppings

 Preheat the oven to 475 degrees. Spray a 12-14 inch pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray. I however just used a nonstick cookie sheet.

Combine the pizza crust mix and the hot water in a medium mixing bowl, stir about 30 strokes with a fork or until well blended. (I found it easier and faster to use my hands). Shape the dough into a ball (if the dough is too sticky add 1-2 tbs of flour). Brush with oil and then cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Then spread out in the pan and prick generously with a fork.

Bake on the lowest oven rack for 5 minutes.

Top the pizza as desired. I added sauce, cheese, and pepperoni. Bake an additional 9-11 minutes or until crust is golden brown and the topings have been throroughly heated. Store leftovers loosly covered in the refridgerator.

This pizza was labeled "Thin and Cripsy" but I didn't spread out the dough as much as I could have therefore it was more of a "Pan" pizza. If spread out it would be slightly bigger and much more crispier.

This is a very good and easy way to make pizzas that everyone can have just the way they like it. Buy a few packets of the crust mix and everyone can have their own personal pizza for a very low price :)
