Weekly Recipe: Basil Pizza

We make homemade pizza every Friday night. This is our favorite, hands down! (The dough recipe is really for those who already know how to make bread.)

Basil Pizza

1 scant T. yeast
3 c. flour (I use ½ spelt, ½ hard red)
1 t. sea salt
3 T. olive oil
1 scant T. honey
1 c. warm water (use slightly less if using spelt)

After initial rising, roll dough onto oiled stone (or oil with cornmeal).
Preheat oven to 500 deg.

Mix together:
8 oz. shredded mozzarella
¼ c. Parmesan
4 tomatoes, diced
1 pkg. fresh basil, sliced
1 can sliced black olives

Salad Dressing:
2 T. olive oil
1 T. red wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves, pressed
½ t. salt
½ t. pepper

Mix all together and spread evenly over pizza dough. Bake at 500 for 10 minutes.
