Italian's make good food. Really good food. My two favorites, and I think most of America's two favorites, are pizza and pasta. Both are delicous. But the two together? Would it taste good?

The answer is yes. This dish is actually quite good. And what is it, you ask? Well, it is a stuffed-with-cheese crust, vegetarian pizza that has pasta on it. It's Italian food, and by that I mean that it is simply made with good, easy ingrediants (it's very natural). It is surprisingly good, and definitely worth making the next time your feeling Italian food, but can't choose between pizza or pasta. 

This recipe makes enough for two small pasta pizzas, enough to feed one really hungry dude, or a couple on a date.

Making pizza dough is simple enough that even Homer Simpson could make it (although he would probably call it Pizza D'oh!). First, in a mixing bowl, combine about 1 1/4 cups of the flour with the yeast and the salt. Then, pour in the water and the oil. Beat with a mixer for about 30 seconds on low speed, then kick it into high gear for about 3 minutes. Then, stir in the remaining flour with a wooden spoon. 
Next, prepare a surface by cleaning it and covering it lightly with flour. Knead the dough for a bit until you get a nice dough that is smooth and elastic, but kind of stiff. If you want to make two small pizzas, now would be the time to divide the dough into two separtate halves. Then cover the dough for about 10 minutes.
