Growing up in Appalachia our family owned a pizza shop & convenience store. Grandma made the sauce and carried it to,the store every day. Grandpa made sure anyone could have a meal for a dollar. One dollar got you a soda, bag of chips and a slice of pizza or a pizza bun. Pizza buns are hamburger buns with mozzarella cheese, pizza sauce and pepperoni...microwaved for one minute wrapped in wax paper. Back then, as a high school student, you had to leave the school for lunch, the cafeteria was too small to feed everyone. These were consumed by so many kids during my time in the 80’s! People still talk about them. My kids love them...and the grands will too, soon!
I love making homemade pizza because I can put any toppings I like. Usually to keep it simple, I would do tomato base and maximum 3 ingredients the most, but you can definitely put as many toppings as you want. One day I tried adding corn as topping because it’s been in the fridge for some time. Surprisingly it tasted good. What is your favourite topping in a pizza?
I created this thin crust pizza recipe illustration for the Food Geometry challenge. As I started sketching ideas of foods that could relate to geometry, pizza just kept coming back into my mind. You can practice fractions with pizza, which makes it the perfect homework food!
Can you spot examples of these geometry terms in my pizza recipe?
• right triangle
• concentric circles
• line segments
• perpendicular lines
• acute angles
I love this homemade thin crust pizza recipe because it's easy - you can bake it from scratch and have it on the table in about 30 minutes! The crust also doesn't have the yeasty flavor we've experienced with some other pizza recipes we've tried in the past.
And if you're on a budget, this thin crust pizza recipe is a no brainer. For the cost of about 2 frozen pizzas, you can pick up enough supplies to make way more homemade pizzas that don't contain tons of preservatives and other random ingredients found in the freezer section.
If you ever have the chance to visit Austria, please make sure you eat 'Brettlhause' at a 'Heuriger'. It's a plate with all kind of cheese, ham, vegetables and spreads. Illustrated by Sandra Neuditschko, food lover and austrian illustrator.
