With the storms and cooler weather decided it was a fine opportunity to do a little something inside the kitchen, make a pizza! Made the dough from a Guy Fieri recipe on the Food Network site, super easy.

1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for the bowl
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1 cup water

Had the dough all ready and my pizza stone in the oven at 425º, start the build with a little sauce

Salami

My homemade Italian sausage and some onions

Few red bell peppers and a topping of parmesan cheese, ready for the oven

20 minutes at 425º, looking good to me!

Finish the whisky, pop a brewster, bon appetito!

This turned out to be one dammed fine pizza! We like a thick crust but not a heavy dough, somehow this recipe really fit the bill, even my in-house food critic was impressed. For as easy as it is this one's a real keeper, and repeatable! Thanks for lookin' in, y'all stay safe out there! RAY

Now that is a pie I could get into & just tear it up. Even though I’m not supposed to eat that stuff anymore, I do cheat on occasion!:emoji_sunglasses::emoji_sunglasses:

I could do that. Would have to peel the peppers off for the wife, but doable. :emoji_thumbsup:

I love a WORKS PIZZA, even Anchovies!
Looks great. My long time Go To Dough Recipe is similar but a little more Sugar and Salt. My crew likes Thick Crust Sicilian Pizza, baked in pans my Dad fabricated many years ago...JJ

Nice, Ray! We would both tear into that but one slice would be the Mrs. Sodium intake for the day :-(
Thanks for the dough recipe. I'm partial to simple and easy.
Like Al said, you can cheat a little now and then....

Hell Al, if everything was up to the docs we'd never have any fun! Thank you for the Like, I do appreciate it. RAY


Ray, That is one good looking pie. Stu
Thanks Stu, I'm loving this weather, raining pretty good right now. Got a Beef Bourguignon going in the crockpot, gonna bake a batch of burger buns later. Thanks for the Like amigo, much appreciated. RAY


Nice looking pie Ray!
Thanks Steve, it was great to strike while the iron was hot and the weather was not, be awhile before the next one. Thanks for the Like Steve, I do appreciate it! RAY


Wow!! My kinda Pizza!! Loaded with Meats!!! Nice Job Ray! Like. Bear
Thanks Bear! I make pizza that requires a knife and fork. Something you can pick up and eat with your hands is a snack, not a meal. Thanks for the Like John, I do appreciate it! RAY


YEAP! Meat lovers!! Awesome job!
Thanks Yankee! My wife said maybe we could have a vegetarian pizza sometime, I told her she could order one for herself from Domino's. Thanks for the Like, I do appreciate it! RAY


Nice job Ray, I’d have been all over that plate!
Thanks WHB, after another half slice I managed to do a push away from the table, stuffed! Thank you for the Like, I do appreciate it! RAY


Looks excellant Ray!
Thanks Jim, tasted every bit as good as it looked! Thanks for the Like, much appreciated! RAY


I could do that. Would have to peel the peppers off for the wife, but doable. :emoji_thumbsup:
Thanks Winterrider! If not for my wife I might have tried a little garlic in the dough recipe, probably wouldn't have gotten the nice review she gave me. Thanks for the Like! RAY

Thank you Chef! My Resident Food Critic actually approves of shrimp and chovies on the pizza I make from time to time, I might have to make a half and half on the next one. Thank you for the Like Chef, I do appreciate it! RAY


Nice, Ray! We would both tear into that but one slice would be the Mrs. Sodium intake for the day :-( Thanks for the dough recipe. I'm partial to simple and easy. Like Al said, you can cheat a little now and then....
Thanks Mose! I thought both the salt and sugar amounts in the dough recipe were pretty moderate, and was really surprised with the texture of the finished product. I've tried so many pizza dough recipes over the years I could write a book, this one really works well for what we're looking for. Thanks for the Like Mose, I do appreciate it! RAY


Yes!!! I love pizza that looks good
Thank you, I'd rather eat pizza than ice cream, and it's better for you too! RAY


Nice pie Ray. Homemade pizza is a staple in our house.
Thanks Norm! Homemade pizza is one of the best benefits of homemade sausage, never have to run to the market. Thanks for the Like, I do appreciate it! RAY


Excellent work Ray!
Thanks Charlie, and thank you for the Like, much appreciated! RAY


Nice work Ray !
Thanks Rich! I'm still wanting to try making some dough and let it proof out but fridge space gets to be a real issue around here. Thanks for the Like amigo, much appreciated! RAY



That is perfect! Nice pie Ray.
Thanks Brian, my old boss used to say perfect is always good enough! RAY


Nice Pie Ray! I'd be all over that! Like!
Thanks Keith! Right before I made this pizza I was looking all over for a dough recipe of yours I was sure I bookmarked. It was like looking for a sheetrock knife in my garage, got ten of 'em and can never find one. Thanks for the Like Keith, I do appreciate it!
