Homemade Pizza

I made homemade pizza last week and it was a hit. Here is the breakdown of how I made it:

  • I made the pizza dough from the Healthy Youth Program. It is quick and simple. You may have noticed that I use a lot of recipes from HYP. You can take the girl from the HYP, but you can’t take the HYP from the girl! As usual, the flour was from Camas Valley Mill.
  • For the sauce, I roasted tomatoes from my garden with a bunch of garlic. After roasting, I drained the liquid and mixed in my food processor with a little salt and oregano.
  • I found an affordable way to buy local bacon. If you buy a bag of random pieces and end pieces, it is so much more affordable. For $3.00, we had enough to spread sparingly on two pizzas.
  • I had cooked Oregon Wild Rice the night before for rice bowls, so I sprinkled some of the leftover rice on as a topping. Seems like it might be gross, but it was actually really delicious!
  • We also topped with broccoli and peppers from Peoria Rd. Market and Tillamook Mozzarella Cheese.

Homemade pizza will for sure stay in our menu. You can easily make 2 quality pizzas using local ingredients for less than what one pizza would cost to buy.
