Pizza A Recipe Plus

Updated on May 4, 2014

Pizza even cold.

I remember when the pizzeria first set up shop in our neighbourhood. We hade never seen or heard of anything like it and the first time my parents picked one up and brought it home, I just looked at it and said no thanks.

Since then much has changed. It all began about a year or so later when a second pizzeria opened. It was on the way home from school and you could get slices. My buddies and I used to drop in and get a slice. It was also a cool place to hang out in the evening and sometimes the owner gave us a good deal on a pizza that someone had ordered but never picked up.

Much has changed since then, for one thing, I even enjoy cold pizza, sometimes even for a pre-breakfast snack when I am in a hurry and there is a slice or 2 leftover in the fridge.

The pizza as we know it today did not catch on until the 1600s when the Europeans began to realize that the tomato was not going to kill them. Some food historian trace the pizza back to Greece and not Italy but wherever it originally cam from it is a great idea.

The best pizzas are still home made, mostly, because you can make them exactly as you like them. You can even use a bagel to make a mini-pizza.

Pizza bagels:


2 bagels, whole wheat but you choice (sliced)

Mozzarella cheese ( you decide how much)

Slice of onion, green pepper and tomato.

Hot peppers(optional)


Place cheese on bagel, add green peppers, onion,s tomato

Sprinkle hot peppers if desired.

Place in toaster oven and set on 350 for 3 minutes.



You have a few choices when it comes to pizza dough. You can make your own. You can buy a pre-made shell or you can buy the dough.

I prefer buying pizza dough either fresh and or frozen and stretching it to fit my pizza pan.


I small can pizza sauce or you can make your own basic version;


1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. garlic salt


This is all up to you;

Mozzarella cheese,

My favourites are mushrooms, chili peppers, green peppers tomatoes, onion and pepperoni


Spread sauce over crust, add cheese, then toppings, you can sprinkle more cheese over toppings if desired.

Bake about 20 minutes at 450 degrees f. remove from oven, let cool slightly, maybe 3 minutes, slice and serve.

Besides great taste and being simply fun, pizza is a creative food that you can design fro yourself. I have included links to pizza recipes that require a bit more time but that are well worth the effort if you desire a gourmet version.

    Hi Bob, this looks sooooo good. We just love pizza and this inspires me to break out my bread machine and make a pizza crust. Then I'll have to break out my sauce pan to make the sauce. Then I'll have to break out my grater for the cheese. Then I'll have to break out the knife and cutting board........ I'd better get moving. Great post making your own pizza is very rewarding all the way around and as a plus, you know exactly what's in it.
