Living On Food



Homemade pizza is a delight. This is a simple and easy recipe, that can be quickly complicated by using more and more involved toppings.


A simple cheese pizza needs only pizza dough, tomato sauce, and shredded mozzarella cheese. Pull off a piece of the dough, and set it on a plate to rest. Start the oven pre-heating to 450°F. Take a cookie sheet, and lightly dust it with flour. Spread the dough out as thin as you can without pulling it apart. Cover with a thin layer of sauce, and then cover the sauce with shredded cheese.

Put the pizza in the oven and bake until it is done to your taste. Twenty minutes in my oven gives the top a nice toastiness, and gives the dough a good doneness.


Careful pulling the pizza out, it's baked a little hotter than most things. Let it cool for a couple of minutes before cutting into pieces. And be careful of the first couple of bites, too.

You should never leave your house or apartment when something is cooking in the oven, but this is even more important when you're cooking at 450 degrees! Don't let yourself get distracted into having an oven fire.
