Home made Pizza Pie

 
Back in the 1950's when 
Pizza hit America by storm 
everyone called it Pizza Pie.





Simple basic ingredients, here's my recipe:


1 and 1/2  CUP WARM WATER (105 to 115 degrees)
1  TABLESPOON YEAST
3  TABLESPOONS  OLIVE OIL
1  TABLESPOON SALT
1 TABLESPOON HONEY
4 CUPS OF ALL PURPOSE FLOUR





Cover and let rise in a warm place.
If your house is on the cool side, 
turn the oven on for a few minutes, 
then turn it back off, and  set your bowl in. 
let rise for 1  1/2  hours or so.






The dough will at least double in size.






I love punching it down after it rises.
 Doesn't that look good?
It smells good too!



 

Now it's time to have fun!





Putting corn meal on the wooden peel keeps the dough from sticking.





I would love to be able to toss the dough but it would take a lot of practice and I don't make pizza often enough.





Marinara sauce.
Mozzarella and turkey pepperoni, sweet basil leaves right out of our garden. 
We will add cheddar cheese,black olives and mushrooms.





We have a pizza stone on the Grilla pellet grill.
We are at 550 degrees.





Wow does that ever look and smell good.




YUM!!!!






For the second pie we have garlicky hamburger, mozzarella, basil, black olives and mushrooms.





Such beauty!




In it goes for 10 -12 minutes.




Double YUM!!





Grab a plate and let's eat!

  1. Yum, these pizzas look so good. You are making me hungry. I have a pizza stone, but never thought about using it on a grill.

  2. They do look great. I do mine on the inverted lid of a 16" Dutch oven. Place the oven up-side-down over it. Place a wok ring on it to hold the charcoal, then just pill on the charcoal.

  3. Okay all you readers . . . if you're reading this you can get a little bit jealous, because I was there to help eat these pizzas. Yum . . . they were so good that we decided that we are never using the regular oven again. Steve's pizzas were the best I've ever had, and I'm not just say that because he's my sweetie. Perfection!
