Making homemade pizza was on the menu for Jamie Oliver’sFood Revolution platform basic pizza recipe allrecipe.com pizza dough recipe
I made Souk’s (my very talented oldest sister) famous semi-homemade red sauce, and tweaked it to fit my family’s needs. Then we put it on the dough, divided into four sections so each one of us can add our toppings we like and threw it in the oven to bake. While it was baking we nibbled on the toppings. The kids favorite was fresh cut up pineapple chunks. My kids thought the dough tasted like biscuits after it was cooked, they liked it. My husband said it tasted a little “doughy”. I thought it tasted better than expected. Not the best I’ve tasted, but good for a fast and easy recipe to make.
