Introduction: Super Sauceless Soggy-free Pizza

I like to make pizza at home as a family meal.  I get lots of help from the kids.  We didn’t like it when the crust came out soggy, and we couldn’t agree with which type of sauce we should have; some wanted red sauce and some wanted white sauce.  Our answer  was to create the sauceless  pizza.
Everyone one gets the sauce they want and no more soggy crust.

Step 1: Ingredients

Pizza Dough
Variety of Spices
Pizza toppings
Mozzarella Cheese (Shredded)
Pizza / Dipping Sauce (yes, for a sauceless pizza)

Step 2: Prepare the Crust

I often use a frozen loaf of Rhodes bread dough for our Crust.  I think it is the best.  We have also used the powdered pizza crust dough with success.  If you use the powdered dough, I recommend using two packages so the crust is not too thin.  If you are in a real time crunch, you can also use the pre-made pizza crusts.

To make the crust with the Rodes bread (as illustrated in this instructable), remove it from the freezer 2-3 hours ahead of time, wrap in plastic wrap, and leave on the counter to thaw.   If making your crust via another method, follow the directions on the package.

When the dough has thawed, roll it out into a  flat crust and shape it to your favorite pizza shape.  I roll mine right onto a pizza stone.  Sometimes you need to use your hands to shape things the way you want.

Preheat the oven to 475 degrees, bake the dough for 6 minutes, remove the dough from the oven, and move on to step3

Step 3: Spice It Up

Now it's time to spice it up with your favorite flavors. I like to use fresh chopped garlic, basil, oregano, onion powder, pepper,and seasoned salt.  Sometimes, I substitute an Italian spice mixture for the individual spices.  Next comes the mozzarella cheese.  I use about 10 ounces or so.   This is followed by the other toppings: Peperoni, Canadian Bacon, Black Olives, and sometimes Pineapple.  Everybody gets the toppings they want on their part of the pizza.

Place it back in the heated oven for about 10 minutes until it is golden brown on top.

Step 4: Savour the 'za

Remove the pizza from the oven and allow it to sit for about 2 minutes to set up.  Cut pizza into your favorite pizza slice shape, add crushed red peppers, Parmesan cheese, or whatever condiments you like. 
Get out the dipping sauce (it was back in the list of ingredients for sauceless pizza)  I recommend marinara, white sauce, and my favorite (and not really a traditional pizza sauce) ranch dressing.  Mix and match to please your favorite tastebud.

Great pizza, Great flavor, and no Soggy Crust !!

I have a yeast phobia, so I really like the idea of using Rhodes bread. Thanks for sharing!

My favorite pizza dipping sauce is Blue cheese... add a side of pickled whole jalapenos to munch on with every bite... I'm in pizza heaven! ;-P~

OOOh!, That sounds good. I'm going to try Blue Cheese next time. I bet the kids pass on that. I've also never tried pickled jalapenos either.
I like to sometimes put sliced jalapenos on the pizza before cooking, time to try a couple of somethings new.
Thanks for the ideas, and for commenting on my instructable.

Thanks, The spices step makes it pop more than the breadsticks most places serve. If I ran a pizza place, I'd spice up the breadsticks and claim (truthfully in my opinion) that our breadsticks (with toppings) are better than the competition's.
I appreciate your reading and commenting.
