School Pizza (who remember)
if you love and miss the old school rectangle pizza, here’s the recipe.
2 ⅔ flour
¾ cup powdered milk
2 T sugar
1 packet of quick rise yeast
1 tsp salt
1 ⅔ cup warm water (105-110 degrees)
2 T vegetable oil
½ pound ground chuck
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
1 8oz block mozzarella cheese – grated yourself
(To be authentic school pizza, you will have to use imitation mozzarella shreds.)
Sauce (Some make the sauce the day before):
6oz can tomato paste
1 cup of water
⅓ olive oil
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
½ tbsp dried oregano
½ tbsp dried basil
½ tsp dried rosemary crushed
Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Spray pan with Pam and lay Parchment paper down (Pam makes it stick).
In a large bowl – flour, powdered milk, sugar, yeast, salt – whisk to blend.
Add oil to hot water (110-115 degrees) – pour into your mixture.
Stir with a wooden spoon until batter forms – don’t worry about lumps – you just want no dry spots.
Spread dough into pan using fingertips until it’s even. If dough doesn’t want to cooperate, let rest 5 minutes and try again.
Bake just the crust for 8-10 minutes – remove from oven and set aside.
Brown meats until it resembles crumbles – set aside and drain meat.
Get out the pizza sauce – to partially baked crust, assemble:
- Sauce – spread all over crust
- Sprinkle meats
- Sprinkle cheese
Bake at 475 degrees for 8-10 minutes until cheese melts and begins to brown
Remove from oven – let stand 5 minutes
Cut in slices and serve!
