Picture of Chimmichurri Pizza
I had some left over chimmichurri sauce laying around and decided to create a Pizza!  The pizza has a homemade crust, chimmichurri as the sauce, herbed harvarti cheese, grilled chicken and roasted red pepper.

Step 1: Making the crust

Pizza Crust:

1 tlbs instant dry yeast
1c. warm water
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tlbs vegetable oil
2 1/2 - 3c. All Purpose Flour

1) In a large bowl dissolve yeast with the warm water
2) Add the sugar- Mix
3) Stir in the Vegetable Oil
4) Add one cup of flour and stir until incorporated
5) Add another cup of flour and the salt, mix until incorporated
6) Add enough of the remaining flour until the dough is easy to handle and not sticky
7) Shape the dough into a ball

Note: The Salt should be added with the second cup of flour to keep it away from the yeast because it prevents the yeast from rising as well if added near the beginning. 

Step 2: Dough set to rise

Put the dough in a bowl greased with shortening.  Roll the dough top around the bowl so that it is covered with the shortening and cover loosely with plastic wrap.  Leave the dough to rise; double in size.  This will take up to an hour.

why is the bell pepper sealed? what does that achieve?

By sealing the bell pepper in a bowl with plastic wrap creates steam inside the bowl. The steam loosens the skin from the pepper so that it is easier to remove.
How creative! Congrats and best of luck!

The sauce and pizza are worth trying. I was nervous about putting the sauce on pizza but the results were amazing.
