Hockey Puck Pizza!

I've gotten so many requests for this recipe that I had to post it for everyone to enjoy! It's pretty simple really, but be sure you follow the directions exactly or it may not turn out as planned.

First, get some fresh pizza dough from your favorite location, Publix is where mine came from. Spread the dough out on some aluminum foil on a cookie sheet and if you want, spray some of that no stick stuff on there. Then get the pizza sauce, regular spaghetti sauce is fine and that's what I used. Then put on some shredded cheese and your favorite toppings. The bag of dough called for an oven temperature of 380-400 degrees at 25-30 minutes, so I put it on 390 degrees for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes the pizza looked perfect! But wait, you're not done yet. Cut the pizza into 4 small pieces and check to make sure the dough ISN'T cooked all the way through like mine WASN''s time to put the pizza back in the oven for another 10 minutes, but put some foil on top so it won't burn the top.

After 10 minutes, pull it back out again and check to be sure that it still ISN'T cooked all the way through. Still with me? Good....put it back in the oven for another 10 minutes, but this time take the foil off the bottom of the cookie sheet, since maybe that is why it isn't cooking all the way through and while you're at it, forget to put the foil back on top to prevent the top from burning.

After 10 minutes, pull it back out to find that the bottom is now fully cooked and the top sure is nice and golden black as well and the pizza is nice and hard/crispy as well. If you followed the directions fully, you now have 4 small slices of char'd pizza that resemble hockey pucks and would function quite well as actual hockey pucks. I actually made two little pizzas and due to how long it took me, I forced a few chunks down but only out of spite.

If I learned one thing, it's looks can be deceiving. At the 30 minute mark I though I had conquered making homemade pizza, just as well or better than the wifey. Not so much...Good thing she was only coming home late that one night, would hate to see what trouble I would have gotten into making an actual meal! The kitchen is not a place for me to be, thankfully the wifey is an excellent cook! :o)
