Homemade Pizza

Every once in a while, I get a hankering for homemade pizza. Actually, I get a hankering for homemade pizza frequently, but every once in awhile I do something about it. I really should make it more often. It is delicious, inexpensive, and is on the table faster than some pizza deliveries. 

I've been making my own pizza since around age 10 and I have always used the same recipe. It is tattered and grease-stained now from 3.5 decades of use. I don't remember where it came from, so unfortunately I can't credit the source. Mom, do you remember?

I follow the recipe exactly EXCEPT that I don't divide the crust. I love thick crust pizza, so I just use all the dough. I've tried it as written and it's wonderful, so if you prefer thin crust, follow the recipe. It only takes about 15 minutes to assemble the pizza...

... then it bakes for 25 minutes. Piping hot and delicious in 40 minutes. 

I really should make it more often.
