Here’s a type of homemade pizza we resisted for many years being purists but with influence from our children and getting used to the thought of Ranch dressing on pizza, we tried it and have become huge fans. If you love pizza as we do and want to mix it up a little with spinach and ranch dressing, you have to give this recipe a try.

Pizza Ingredients:

Pizza Dough:

  • One 2 cup Pizza Pan King flour package
  • 1.5 tsp of dry yeast
  • ¼ tsp of brown sugar
  • ½ tsp of salt
  • ¾ cup of warm water
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil

Toppings:

  • Ranch Dressing
  • Minced Garlic
  • Fresh Spinach
  • 8-12 oz Mozzarella Cheese
  • Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • Pepperoni
  • Bacon – pre-cooked and cut into pieces
  • Diced Tomatoes

Pizza Dough Preparation:

Mix the brown sugar into the warm water then mix in the yeast and set aside. In a mixing bowl add the flour and salt, once the yeast activates (about 8 minutes) add it to the flour with 1 tbsp. of olive oil.  Mix and kneed into a ball then place back in the bowl, sprinkle with olive oil, cover the bowl with plastic wrap & a towel then place in an area to rise for 1.5+ hours or until it doubles in size.

Pizza Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Prepare the Pizza Pan King pizza pan by brushing 1 tsp of vegetable oil on the pan then sprinkle with corn meal.
  3. Knead the dough and sprinkle with flour as needed. As you knead the dough punch your thumbs into the dough ball and knead inward which helps form air pockets in the crust.
  4. Roll out the dough thin as needed to be large enough to overlay the pizza pan. Then fold in half and half again, pick up then place on the pan and unfold. With a butter knife cut outwards on the top rim of the pan to remove excess dough – that can be re-used.
  5. Brush olive oil lightly on the pizza dough
  6. Cover with a thin layer of Ranch dressing mixed with minced garlic
  7. Cover with a layer of fresh spinach
  8. Add a layer of Mozzarella Cheese
  9. Add Pepperoni, Bacon, tomatoes
  10. Top with Parmesan cheese and sprinkle with olive oil

Pizza Cooking:

Cook the pizza in a preheated 425-degree oven on the bottom rack and set timer for 12 minutes. Cook the pizza on the bottom rack until the crust turns golden brown then if needed, move to the middle rack until the cheese starts to brown.  Put aside for 5 minutes or so, then cut and enjoy.  Serve with Ranch on the side.
