So, I had about 2 cups of marinara leftover from the meatball spaghetti I made recently. Since the sauce is homemade, I try my best not to waste it...I put a lot of time into making it. Time for pizza!
First- I made the pizza dough and made the 2 dough balls for the thin crust pizzas...left them to sit on the counter for 2 hours.

I found 5 jalapenos left on my plants in the garden. They were hanging low in the protection of the leaves...not frost bit. So I picked those for the pizza.
Next, I roasted a large red bell pepper with my new kitchen torch (new toy to play with), then I put the pepper in a walmart bag to sweat and steam. I put 2 pods of garlic in the oven to roast. Then I put the 1# of homemade Calabrian Italian sausage in a skillet to brown. When that was done, I caramelized 1/2 a Spanish Yellow onion in the rendered sausage fat. Somewhere along in the process, I sliced the salumi; The remainder of the venison breasola, Calabrian Soppressata, Milano, and the recently dried Napolitana Dolce. I also used some cajun spiced canadian bacon.

Did you know it was National Pizza Day or was it a coincidence? Excellent celebration either way.

Holy cow. That is a meat lovers pizza if I’ve ever seen one. It’s like a charcuterie board made on pizza dough and baked to perfection. Great job!!!

That's my kind of pizza, a beautiful piece of work! I use about the same amount of my sausage and CB on pizza as you. Care to share your dough recipe? I've used a half dozen different dough recipes over the years and am still searching. RAY

Thin crust pizza dough
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 TBSP. olive oil
3/4 cup luke warm water

Combine dry ingredients with a whisk. Add oil then water. fold until combined. knead 5-8 minutes until dough stiffens and just before it cracks when folding. Make a ball, then divide into two balls. Cover with moist towel, let rest 2 hours minimum. Each dough ball will make 1 14" thin crust pizza.

That dough will be more dense than one that has yeast. Will have to stretch good, but only after resting for minimum of 2 hours or it'll tear.

Thanks a ton, I've got it copied and will give it a go later this week. It's a very similar recipe to one I found and use from Food Network. RAY
