Grammy's Special Pizza!

Come and get it!  My special pizza!!!  No mozzarella for me!!

 **This recipe will make one large pizza or 2 personal pan pizzas.  Feel free to double recipe as needed.

1 pre-baked pizza shell or 2 small personal size pizza shells

1 cup fresh pizza sauce (use 1 can (15 oz) diced or petite diced tomatoes(with onions) and cook to reduce to your desired consistency) while adding Hunts sauce and
special seasoning (basil, onion powder, garlic powder, red pepper(optional)salt and black pepper and a pinch of oregano).

Directions:  Place small amount of olive oil in medium pan.  Add diced tomatoes, juice and all and Hunt's sauce.  Season with 2 leaves fresh or1/2 tsp. dried basil, 1/2 tsp. onion powder, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder,1/4 tsp. red pepper(optional) or more, pinch of salt, black pepper and oregano). Simmer until tomatoes and juice reduce to thicken.

 Depending on what type tomatoes you use you may need to add a pinch of sugar. It is not necessary but if you like a sweeter sauce add a   pinch to it.  (Note:)  You can place tomatoes in food processor if necessary if you prefer less chunky tomatoes..

Topping: 1 lb. special cheese, no mozzarella for me! (Grated American or Cooper sharp American and Brick cheese. (Brick cheese will help hold the cheeses together).(Suggestion:  1/2 lb. brick cheese, 1/2 lb. American or sharp american. 1 lb. total for large pizza).

****Note: If you want to make a white pizza topped with sliced tomatoes using this cheese mix works well too!

optional:  grated Italian cheese, sliced green peppers or pepperincini.
