Homemade Pizza

Threw caution to the winds and made pizza tonight. Fresh dough, sauce, toppings.
Used a recipe that made it pretty easy. I've stayed away from doing any kind of baking for the last several months. Don't know why, just have not felt the need for working dough. This crust was easy to assemble. My year old yeast still foamed up, so I really had no more excuse not to make the pie.
For the sauce, I used an 8-oz can of tomato sauce, added 1.5 tablespoons of grated Parmesan, and a variety of spices, red pepper flakes, and two pressed garlic cloves. Spread that over the dough, covered it with prosciutto, onion, and chopped tomato, mounded with mozzarella.
425 oven for about 14 minutes.
Yowzah, that's some good eats.
And a nice Alexander Valley cabernet.

We haven't had pizza in a while. Maybe with the kids back we'll go back to having it every Friday.
