Pizza Crust Dough
2 1/4 cups bread flour
3/4 cup water
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp milk powder
1 tsp instant yeast
8 ozs mozzarella cheese
4 cups of simple tomato sauce (recipe is at bottom of page)
8 ozs button white mushroom
8 ozs ham or sausage
4 ovenproof cereal bowls
Mix all the ingredients for the pizza crust dough and knead until smooth and elastic. Oil the dough and leave in a covered bowl to proof until double.
While the dough is proofing, prepare the simple tomato sauce, cut or shred the mozzarella cheese, clean mushrooms with a damp kitchen towel and cut ham or sausage into bite size.
Grease the cereal bowls and line with the mozzarella cheese, add in the mushrooms and ham/sausage and top with the simple tomato sauce.
When the pizza crust dough has doubled it's size, punch down and divide into portions and make them into balls. Roll ball out to a size 1/2 inch to 1 inch bigger than the cereal bowl. Cover the bowl with the dough.
Repeat with the other 3 balls and leave to proof. In the mean time, preheat oven at 425 f. Put in hot oven and bake for 15 - 20 minutes until dough is brown. Remove from oven and flip pizza crust on to serving plate and remove the cereal bowl.
Simple Tomato Sauce:
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 (32-ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
2 dried bay leaves
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, optional
In a large casserole pot, heat oil over medium high heat. Add onion and garlic and saute until soft and translucent, about 5 to 10 minutes. Add celery and carrots and season with salt and pepper. Saute until all the vegetables are soft, about 5 to 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and bay leaves and simmer uncovered on low heat for 1 hour or until thick. Remove bay leaves and check for seasoning. If sauce still tastes acidic, add unsalted butter, 1 tablespoon at a time to round out the flavors.
