Pizza is great comfort food.

I love pizza and so does my friend Robin. It's one of those foods that you just crave sometimes. But if you are in the mood for a homemade pie here is a great recipe: Danielsen Family Pizza

Danielsen Family Pizza

The Danielsens Are A Pizza Lovin' Family !!!!!

Many a pizza has been made in their house. Fresh dough, frozen dough, English muffins...we have tried them all! That goes for the sauces too. The following recipe if you can call it that, is how they do pizza around. Not your food network variety, just fun and full of yum. So if you want an easy, full of flavor, fun pizza night, give this a try!!!

The sauce used is "from scratch" and is not for the taste bud sensitive.

Sauce Ingredients for "P.J.'s Homemade Pizza Sauce" makes enough for 2 large pies (1.5 cups approx):
1 clove garlic, minced or mashed. You can use jarred.

1 tsp salt
1 can (6 oz) can tomato paste
1 can (8oz) tomato sauce
1/2 tsp sugar
1/8 pepper
1/2 tsp oregano or Italian herbs
1 tbsp olive or canola oil
A dash of red pepper (optional)

1. Combine all ingredients (That's it. Your sauce is ready!)

Ingredients for Pizzas:

Pizza crust (we love boboli, it holds sauce well)
Mozzarella Cheese
Meats, Veggies you name it.

1. Lay out crust
2. Add Sauce
3. Add cheese.
4. Then the toppings of your choice.
5. Cook at 350 till crust is golden and cheese is melted (about 10-15 minutes depending on how much you put on the pizza)
6. Sit down with a good movie and the family and... Enjoy!!


  1. That looks delicious! ITs always good having a great pizza recipe that everyone LOVES!


  2. Pizza is my ultimate weakness. I've never made it from scratch but this makes me want to!!!
