Fry Pan Pizza
makes about 4 or 5 10-inch pizzas, or use the extra dough for breadsticks

3/4 cup warm water
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon sugar
dash of salt
1 packet dry active yeast

Put aobut 1 1/2 cups of flour in a dish and add the oil, sugar and
salt. Mix these together, then add the yeast and water. Keep
adding flour until the dough is stiff enough to knead, the dump it
out on a floured surface and begin to work in more flour. When
the dough is very stiff and rubbery, oil the surface and place it
in a covered container in a 140 degree oven for 1 hour, or until
roughtly doubled. When the dough has risen, remove it and pound
it down, then seperate the dough for the pizza and bread sticks.
Put the pizza dough back in to rise and make breadsticks with the
rest, and put those in to rise as well. Let the dough rise for
aobut 45 min. more, then remove the pizza dough and roll it out
and place it in the pan (1/8 to 1/4 inch thick, up to you). An
oiled cast iron frying pan is what I use, and it works quite well.
Turn the oven up to 375 degrees and let the pizza dough rise while
the oven warms up (leave the bread sticks in there). While in the
final rize, add sauce, cheese and toppings. Bake for 20-25 minutes,
and take out when the cheese is browned. The bread sticks should
be done at the same time. Slide the pizza out of the pan and then
cut it.

Traditional tomato sauce

pureed tomatoes
onion powder
garlic powder

Puree the tomatoes and let them stand for a few minutes, then drain
off the juice. Take the pulp and spread a thin layer on the pizza
dough (a bit of mozzerela underneath will make it stick better).
Leave about 3/4 inch of space around the edge. Sprinkle the
seasonings over the sauce, and on the crust sticking out at the
edge. Add favorite toppings and cheeses, making sure that no cheese
touches the edge! Any cheese touching iron will cause the pizza
to stick.

Variation: White pizza

Instead of using tomato sauce, use ricotta cheese. Add a bit of
water to make it smooth enough to spread easily. Spread normally,
and then sprikle on the usual seasonings, toppings and cheese.
Bakes in the same amount of time.
