Few things are more welcome at the end of a long day at school or work is the sight of good pizza on your kitchen or dining room table. Fortunately, residents of apartments in Flagstaff don't have to be master chefs in order to craft a tasty pizza in their home kitchen. Following are just three basics of putting together a great pizza on your own or with help from your family, neighbors, or friends.
Homemade Pizza Crust
If you've got flour, whole wheat flour, active dry yeast, and olive oil in your cupboard, you've got the ingredients for crafting homemade pizza crust. Making several pizza crusts in advance, placing them between pieces of waxed paper, and keeping them in the freezer until you need them is an excellent way to conjure up a pizza in your kitchen in less than half an hour.
Grilled ingredients such as Italian sausage, fresh mushrooms, onions, and sweet peppers combine to make great pizza toppings—this works best when using an outdoor grill. Simply place ingredients in a saucepan until the sausage is brown, pat down with paper towels to remove excess fat, and place two pizza dough circles on the grill. Carefully grill them on a lightly oiled rack and brush with olive oil when you turn them over.
When pizza crusts are browned, brush them with pizza sauce, sprinkled them with your choice of cheese, top with the sausage mixture, and grill until the crust is crispy and the cheese is melted.
Flatbread pizza is the busy person's savior—simply brush flatbread with pizza sauce, add your choice of ingredients such as sliced meats, roasted vegetables, and grated cheese. Place it under the broiler until cheese is melted and the flatbread is brown and crispy.
