A simple pizza, the fresh basil available from a container plant that hs been doing good this year. Keeping it trimmed to encourage growth. Also a wedge of Romano cheese has been purchased from the warehouse club. Good grade cheese is higher priced compared to the individually wrapped processed tasteless slices of what gets passed off as cheese. In the long run the increase in quality and price of the better cheese evens out as you need less to get what it is supposed to taste like.
A plain white bread dough recipe, enough to fill a large 14 inch cast iron skillet and a 12 inch skillet. The pizza additional shell is available for other family members to build their own.

Just a tad of sugar added. Fresh tomato is available but I opted to go with the canned for now. Some of the fresh tomato available is like a hot house variety, not tops on the list for flavor. None planned for the backyard this year…. On with the pizza…
