It wouldn’t be a month of pies without the granddaddy of them all—pizza pie! I save time by buying a sourdough crust mix, but my dad has always made his sourdough by hand from the same starter he’s been using for twenty years. Pizza is the perfect pie to pair with a movie night and a glass of wine. 🍕
Homemade Pizza Pie Recipe
For the crust 1 package of pizza dough mix (or you can make your own) 1 package yeast 1 ¼ cup warm water
For the sauce 1 6 oz. can tomato paste 2 tbsp olive oil 1 tsp oregano 1 tsp thyme 1 tsp basil 1 tsp garlic salt 1 tsp onion salt
Combine flour mix and yeast packet and mix in 1 ¼ cups warm water. Stir until dough begins to form. Knead by hand for three to four minutes, or until dough doesn’t stick to your hands or the bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and set in a warm spot to rise for one hour. Preheat oven to 450° F. Spread oil in a pan or on a pizza stone. Form pizza dough by hand in the pan. For the sauce, combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Spread over pizza dough. Add any desired toppings. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Serve right away.
