Why I Love This Recipe

This is a family recipe that my mom always made - it is so good and reminds me of the chicago-style pizza I grew up with. This recipe makes one pizza - you can double for 2 pizzas.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pizza crust:
3 cups flour
1.5 Tbsp sugar
1.5 Tbsp oil
1/4 cup lukewarm water
1/2 package yeast
Another 3/4 cup water

1/2 t Basil
1/2 t parlic powder
1/4 t pepper
1/2 t salt
8 oz tomato sauce
3 oz tomato paste

One package (or more) mozzarella shredded cheese.
Pepperoni, italian sausage, veggies - whatever you like


Pizza Crust:

Mix together 1/4 cup lukewater water and yeast.

Add all other pizza crust ingredients ( add the other 3/4 cup water last).

Spread dough in a greased 13x9 pan with your hands into the shape of your liking.


In a medium bowl, mix all sauce components.

You can make more sauce if you like more saucey-pizza!


Add a thin layer of sauce and a thin layer of cheese to the crust.

Add the rest of the sauce.

Add your toppings (cooked italian sausage, pepperoni, veggies)

Top with the rest of your cheese.

5. Bake at 450 for 20 minutes.
