Homemade pizzas are not something I usually make, but this recipe is soooo easy, and you're only limited by your imagination. You don't even need any yeast! All you need is some flour and a few other ingredients to make a batter that turns into a great, thin crust. What's even better is you can have it whipped up and served before you can call a pizza place and get one delivered and you can put any toppings you want on it.

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 large eggs
2/3 cup milk
My first one was like a bacon cheeseburger. I fried up about a pound of ground chuck with a small chopped onion, drained off the grease, and sprinkled it on top of the crust I had mixed up and baked it at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Then I squirted some mustard, and chopped pickles on top, sprinkled 1/3 pound of crumbled up, crisp bacon all over and added 2 cups shredded american cheese. Popped it back into the oven on broil and baked just until the cheese was nicely melted and slightly brown.(about 3 minutes)

You would make a traditional one by adding some pepperoni slices or cooked Italian sausage, 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms (optional), baking 20 minutes, drizzling on 1 1/2 cups pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce and adding
2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese or pizza cheese .

Another good one would be shredded cooked chicken, 1/2 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes, baked, then drizzled with ranch or italian dressing, adding 2 cups of mozzarella or any other kind of cheese.

Let everyone choose their own toppings for a fun Supper Bowl Day!

Here aare the directions for the crust.
1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2 Grease and flour a pizza pan or 10 x 15 baking sheet (with sides).
3 Combine flour, salt, oregano, pepper, eggs and milk and mix well.
4 Pour batter in pan and tilt pan around until bottom of pan is evenly coated.
5 Sprinkle the cooked toppings over the batter.
6 Bake for 20 minutes.
7 Remove from oven and drizzle on pizza sauce or other condiments.
8 Sprinkle evenly with cheese.
9 Bake for about 5 more minutes, or until cheese is bubbling.
