Day 8 pizza

We make a lot of pizza and focaccia.  It's super easy if you have a bread maker.  We have the 2 pound machine and we make a double batch all the time, separate it into 8 balls and freeze them into ziploc bags.  Whenever we want pizza we take out a bag and whip up a few.  Each bag usually makes 3 good sized thin crust pizzas.  

Pizza crust recipe from our favorite bread baking book: this is for one pound machines.  The handwritten info is for a double batch.  

Pizza sauce recipe.  This is the most delicious sauce.  Save it in a jar or use an old ketchup or pizza sauce bottle to store it in the fridge.  It is the ultimate pizza sauce from Food. Com

Roll crust really thin and bake at 400 degrees on pizza stone or cookie sheet for a few minutes until slightly cooked and no longer sticky. Be sure not to overcook.  

Remove and add sauce, cheese and toppings of choice.  These were caprese chicken pizzas.  I mixed some pesto sauce in with the last bit of pizza sauce I had and spread that on the dough.  Next I used some fresh mozzarella balls I had in the fridge.  Slice fresh basil leaves into train strips, spread on pizza.  Add some diced cooked chicken and diced tomatoes.  Bake for 10-15 minutes until crust is golden brown.  Watch pizzas as the thin crust can burn easily.  You could make one large thick crust pizza, but we prefer the ultra thin Italian style best.  This makes three 10 inch ultra thin crust pizzas.
