Homemade Pizza

This Easy Focaccia recipe takes only 15 minutes of actual work but 3-4 hours of wait from start to finish. I use this recipe has pizza dough all the time, just remember to roll it thin which will help it cook properly.

Pizza is the perfect meal to get ride of small left over in your fridge! Often I will make a pizza with 3 different theme in the same pan!

About the cheese you can use one or all of them on your pizza...
When you use cooked meat, just make sure that you slice it very thin and/or in small pieces. Also, I always end up with small pieces of different cheeses in my fridge and everything goes for pizza. Experiment and send me your ideas!

Bake at 425F, and rotate twice in the oven, and cook until well browned
About 18-28 minutes.
