Pepperoni Pizza

Pepperoni Pizza

Ok, so this is nothing all that special. It's just a pepperoni pizza. And it isn't Core, but I've been craving pizza and have been on Flex this week because my schedule is seriously insane. When I don't have control over what I'm eating or I'm not up to fussing much in the kitchen, flex is the way to go. But it'll be back to my regular Core postings next week.

I know this *looks* like an ordinary pepperoni pizza. But it really is homemade, crust and sauce. I stop short of making my own pepperoni.

And if you have a breadmaker it's even easier. It was mixing, kneading, and letting the dough rise while I exercised. Talk about zero effort. The sauce was also simple, mix the ingredients and let simmer away. The dough is the basic dough recipe from Cooking Light and the sauce recipe follows.

Tomato Sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 (8-ounce) can no-salt-added tomato sauce
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

Heat a small saucepan coated in cooking spray over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and saute 1 minute. Add the oregano, salt, crushed red pepper, and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil then turn down the heat and let simmer about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in parsley.
