Thursday today, on my part of the planet anyway.  So in order to make space in my tiny fridge, for the upcoming grocery shopping tomorrow, I am making pizza for dinner tonight. 

Basically, I am using this recipe  for my pizza dough and adding whatever the little containers sitting in the cold place in this white box called ‘fridge’ can offer me.

Spaghetti sauce from last night, that should do wonders for the red sauce. 

Capers on top, ok. 

Chopped onions in butter, even better. 

Bacon bits would be a nice addition also.

Black and green olives.

Goat cheese, a bit here and there.

But first and foremost : after the first rise of the dough, punch it down and instead of forming it into little balls, take a pizza pan and spray some dough in it, enough to cover the entire surface of the pan.

Take some olive oil, brush it all over the dough and the edge.  Drop some dry basil leaves on top of the oil.

Next, add the sauce and others ingredients you might have on hand.  If you have cheese, add it as well.

When your pizza looks eatable, let it rise another 20 to 30 minutes, cover very lightly with a dry dish towel.  Turn the oven on at 200 Celsius. 

Bake the pizza, for about 20 minutes or just until the edges are turning a nice golden color.  Take it out of the oven and eat hot!

I have left over of the dough so most of the time, I will use it by forming little balls of 41 gr of bread or roll it to a big ball to make just one bread, and bake it as well, after I have brushed them with a yellow yolk.  No waste here.
