School Lunch Pizza

Kids used to love lunch lady pizza when it was made with love and care by the good ol lunch lady.


"Crust" Ingredients Sauce Ingredients

2 2/3 c. Flour 6oz. Can Tomato Paste

3/4 c. Powdered Milk 1 c. Water

2 Tbsp. Sugar 1/3 c. Olive Oil

1 packet of quick rise yeast 2 Cloves Garlic, Minced

1 tsp. salt 2 tsp. Salt

1 2/3 c. warm water (82-92 degrees) 1 tsp. Pepper

2 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil 1/2 Tbsp. Oregano

1/2 Tbsp. Dried Basil

Pizza Filling 1/2 Tbsp. Onion Powder

1/2 pound ground beef

salt Cheese

pepper 8oz. Cheap Mozzarella, grated


Method:

Preheat the oven to 475 degrees. Line a half sheet sized baking pan with parchment paper.

In one large bowl mix together the flour, powdered milk, sugar, yeast and salt with a whisk to thoroughly blend them together. In another large bowl, pour in the oil and water. Gradually add the dry mixture to the oil and water bowl stirring with a wooden spoon until a doughy batter forms. We aren't looking to get world class pizza dough here folks...

Spread the "dough" into the baking sheet until it is spread evenly. Let rest for ten minutes, then bake the crust only for 10 minutes in the oven. Set aside for the moment.

To make the sauce, in a small mixing bowl add all of the ingredients, stir together and set off to the side of your work area.

Place your ground beef in a hot skillet. and season with salt and pepper. Cook the ground beef off until it resembles the little flavorful brown crumbles of goodness you remember as a child. Drain off the excess fat and cover the beef crumbles, you're almost ready to build your pizza now !

With the par baked crust in front of you, evenly spread the tomato sauce all the way to the edges.

Distribute the beef crumbles evenly all over the pizza, then sprinkle on the cheese.

Place the pizza in to the oven and cook for about 10 minutes or until the cheese begins to bubble and brown.

Cut into squares and serve.
