Pizza Palooza ... Meat Lover's Pizza

We continue our Pizza Palooza with a meat lover's pizza the boys made.  I made a simple pizza dough that I found on Smitten Kitchen.  We topped their pizza's with a meat lover's dream.  The boys just love when we do pizza night and they get to make it all by themselves!

Meat Lover's Pizza
Pizza Dough (see recipe Below)
Pepperoni or Salame
Canadian Bacon
Ham (my dad smoked a ham)
Pizza Sauce

Roll out your dough to the thickness you like.  Add pizza sauce, then top with favorite toppings and your cheese.  Bake at 350 for 10 to 15 minutes.

Pizza Dough
1 1/2 cups flour (can replace up to half of this with whole wheat flour)
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon active dry yeast
1/2 cup lukewarm water (may need up to 1 or 2 tablespoons more)
1 tablespoon olive oil

ALEXIS NOTES: I used the 1/2 whole wheat always trying to get a little in :).

Stir dry ingredients, including yeast, in a large bowl. Add water and olive oil, stirring mixture into as close to a ball as you can. Dump all clumps and floury bits onto a lightly floured surface and knead everything into a homogeneous ball.

Lightly oil the bowl (a spritz of cooking spray perfectly does the trick) where you had mixed it — one-bowl recipe! — dump the dough in, turn it over so all sides are coated, cover it in plastic wrap and leave it undisturbed for an hour or two, until it has doubled in size.

Dump it back on the floured counter, and gently press the air out of the dough with the palm of your hands. Fold the piece into an approximate ball shape, and let it sit under that plastic wrap for 20 more minutes.

Sprinkle a pizza stone or baking sheet with cornmeal and preheat your oven to its top temperature. Roll out the pizza, toss on whatever topping and seasonings you like.  Bake it for about 10 minutes until it’s lightly blistered and impossible to resist.

I hope you enjoy this it is an easy thing to do and the kids really enjoy building their own meal!
