On to the pizza

As I said, the pizza was tast-y. All I have is this sad looking picture of 2 leftover pieces.

I made a sauceless pizza--just added a bit of olive oil to the crust and topped with a mix of Italian cheeses and some regular old mozzarella. Added some garlic from the Dane County Farmers Market, red onions and yellow, orange and green peppers. Yum.

The crust was easy and good. Thin, crispy and a bit of a chewy texture. Perfect.

Here is the crust recipe, courtesy of Lino's Restaurant:

4 ½ Cups All Purpose Flour
2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Dry Yeast
7oz Water
7oz 2% Milk

Combine flour, salt and yeast in a mixing bowl. Combine milk and water in a measuring cup. Heat water and milk mixture until it is 100 deg. F. Mix all ingredients together. Use a mixer if possible. It will make the job easier. Cover with a towel and let rise at room temperature for two hours. Roll and cut dough to start your pizza.

Notes: I cut the recipe in half and used Skim instead of 2% milk.
