Pizza Night in a Whole New Light

Pizza: Noun. A delicious, crispy round of crust topped with warm sauce and garnished with endless varieties of your favorite toppings. Synonym: Happiness

Do you love pizza night? We do too. Instead of ordering the same ol’ take-out pizza, we recommend trying something different! Grab your favorite person or gather the family and make it a special night by making a custom pizza from scratch.

First thing’s first: the dough. You can make things a little simpler by grabbing some French bread from the store, cutting it into equal halves, and then layering all of your favorite things on top and popping it in the oven for it to bake. OR, you can go the whole nine yards and make your dough from scratch! It’s not as scary as it seems. With 30 minutes and only six ingredients, you’ll have your own freshly made pizza dough.

The toppings are the fun part. You can pretty much put anything you want on a pizza, and that’s what makes it great! Our favorite toppings are Cara Mia Grilled Artichoke Hearts, Cara Mia Mushrooms, Cara Mia Sun Dried Tomatoes, our Pimiento Stuffed Manzanilla Olives and Hot Pepper Stuffed Olives. Give them a try, we’re sure you’ll love them, too!

Here’s a recipe for making your own pizza dough:
  • 1 package (0.25 oz.) active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 ½ cups bread flour
  • 2 tablespoons STAR Olive OilTry one of our Infused Olive Oils to give your dough added flavor!
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 450⁰F. In a medium-sized bowl, dissolve both yeast and sugar in warm water and let stand for about 10 minutes or until creamy.
  2. Stir in flour, salt and oil and beat until mixture is smooth. Let it rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Roll the dough out on a surface that is lightly floured. Transfer dough to a lightly greased pizza pan. Add your favorite sauce and toppings and bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Let it cool and then enjoy!
