Ugh, pandemic 2020 is turning into a real deal. This table has not had fast food since the second week of March. A whole five weeks free of fast food, junk food, bad food. The cravings are real, the withdrawal is worse, and the mental draw is exhausting. Needing a fix for fast bad food, a 15 Minute Pizza Dough was located and toppings were based upon availability at the store.
Not having a food processor to make the homemade five minute pizza sauce, a store bought brand was used. Wanting a thicker pizza sauce, the sauce was simmered until desired thickness was reached. Simmering also develops the flavors more and if needed, additional seasonings can be added to create your own flavors.
Scaled for Likability: Good
This is not high quality pizza but it better than many of the frozen pies in a box. The dough itself could have used a little more salt (something I NEVER say) however, the final result was warm and soft with a nice crust on the bottom. Slathered with a garlic butter sauce smeared across the edges would have taken the crust to the next level.
For those who fear homemade breads, this dough was easy to make and very forgiving in rolling. And dependent upon how cooked the dough resulted in a different crust. The half pepperoni half cheese pizza was baked in a 10.5" cast iron skillet resulting in a soft pillowy crust. The pineapple, salami, black olives was cooked on a 10.5" cast iron griddle resulting in a crispy crust.
When needing pizza in a hurry, this is a great go to recipe. It will not be added to the T&T recipe but it will be added to the collection of emergency meals.
