Pizza From the Pantry

Well I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable 4th of July weekend.  Ours was more sedate than some in the past have been. No big get togethers or beer and fireworks this year. And I didn't miss it at all!  We smoked some turkey on the pit, had some good baked beans, swiss chard and home made bread and enjoyed good company.  What more can a person ask for?

We made pizza from scratch this weekend as well.  This was my first adventure in start to finish pizza from food storage.  Mushroom made the dough and let it rise.  And then divided it into pizza pan size dough.
And then we spread it out on the pizza pan.... Looking good!!
Sprinkled a little garlic powder onto the crust...Then we added pizza sauce.  We used a jarred spaghetti sauce for this. Just a little bit and spread it out to the edges.
Then we added fresh onions, some fresh ham,  and re-hydrated ground beef and mushrooms.
Topped it off with copious amounts of shredded mozzarella cheese. And popped it in the oven.
12 minutes or so later....
Amazing!!!  We had some left over dough which was cooked to go with the wonderful feast we enjoyed for the 4th on the next day.
So what did you do this holiday weekend?


  1. That looks yummy! I haven't made pizza in forever so will have to try that this week. Glad you enjoyed your 4th. I am glad the fireworks are over so the dogs will sleep.(and me too) LOL

  2. Glad you had a good 4th, Sci.
    OMG! That pizza looks amazing!


  3. That pizza looks delicious! We didn't do anything on the 4th. It was so horribly hot and the bugs are bad this year with all the rain we have had (Illinois). So we just stayed in and watched tv. Lol. It was fine with me.

  4. I've been making home made pizza for years. You may home can Italian sausage to make this with. Pizza sauce is one of the things you can make with the tons of tomatoes you've hopefully grown this year.
