This one is for you pizza lovers!
When you go beyond the basic cheese-and-sauce combo, pizza can be a sneaky (and delicious!) way to get all five food groups onto your plate. First, the crust: Quarter a 1 lb. ball of pizza dough and let sit at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes. Heat oven to 450 degrees. Heat a pizza stone or overturned baking sheet in the oven. With your fingers, stretch dough balls to 8" rounds. If dough shrinks, cover with a dish towel, let rest another 10 minutes, and try stretching again. Transfer rounds to a parchment paper-lined cutting board, and add toppings.
When ready to bake, transfer parchment onto cooking surface and bake pizzas on parchment. The paper will get dark but won’t burn. Each recipe makes 4 personal pizzas.
