I gathered all of the ingredients, for the crust: flour, sugar, salt, olive oil, warm water and quick-rise yeast.
Then, I proofed the yeast, in the warm water.
I mixed all of the ingredients together, and added garlic powder and italian seasoning - just to give the crust some flavor.
I rolled it out - doesn't it look great. You can really see all the herbs.
And because I had seen the very end of a Emeril show (you know, the one with him in the grocery store teaching people to cook), where he used a cast iron skillet to make a pizza, I thought I should too.
Then, I LOADED on the toppings. I started with pizza sauce, then canadian bacon, and then grated parmesan (the kind from the little green can), and then I grated (with a zester/grater) fresh parmesan over that.
Then, I covered it with pepperoni, because what is a pizza without pepperoni, I ask you.
Then I piled on shredded mozzarella, and more pizza sauce.
And more parmesan from the can, and more of the fresh stuff.
And then more pepperoni.
And then more mozzarella.
And then it baked, and let me tell you right now - it smelled as good as it looks! And then it came out of the oven, right as Darren was walking in the door and I don't know if I have ever seen my husband smile like that. I like to think he did, on our wedding day, or at least on our wedding night, but I'm not so sure he did.
