Salad and Pizza

 
A simple dinner salad

This is a quick and terrific weeknight meal.  You'll have time to make the salad while the Pizza Dough is resting, and time to eat it while the Pizza bakes.
Pizza Crust
Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.

In a stand mixer with dough hook attachment, mix:
2 Cups Flour
1 teaspoon Salt

When dry ingredients are blended, turn mixer on low, and slowly pour in:
3/4 Cup Very Warm Water (about 120 degrees)

When dough is well-blended, turn out onto a floured surface, and knead until dough is smooth and elastic.
Shape into a ball,cover loosely, and let rest for 10 minutes.
Roll dough out into desired shape.

Scatter Corn Meal onto Pizza Stone. 
Center dough on Pizza Stone and pinch all around the edges to create a crust that will retain toppings.

Top with:
Pizza Sauce
Proscuitto
Real Mozzarrella Cheese - cut with an egg slicer
Thinly sliced onion
Marinated Artichokes
Drizzle with Olive Oil

Bake for 25 - 30 minutes until cheese is melted and golden brown.
Let Pizza rest for 5 minutes before cutting.
Buon Appetito!

  2. Thanks, Mary!

    This recipe really simplifies the process - I think you'll be pleased with the results. I think the real secret is using real, fresh mozzarella.
