Mushroom Pizza....with Pork and Olives

Since we did not have any pepperoni in the house and I wanted to make pizza regardless, I thought I could use some pork. I fried it with salt and pepper on very high heat on the stove in a non stick skillet , sliced it and topped the pizza. Just be inventive !

For the Dough:
3 to 4 cups of all purpose flour
2 TBSP olive oil
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
2 teaspoons instant yeast
enough water to make the dough come together.
Knead by hand 10 minutes and let rise until double in size, roughly 1 hour, covered. Deflate, and roll out by hand, stretching to be 1/3 inch thick.

For the Sauce:
1 small can of tomatoes
basil, 1/2 teaspoon
any other seasonings you may like to add
1 clove of garlic, chopped finely
Place all the ingredients in a blender, and pulse until a smooth paste has formed.
The toppings in my case were slices of fresh mushrooms, slices of pork steak, olives and cheese.

Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Grease a baking sheet and sprinkle corn meal then transfer the formed dough.
Bake for 3 to 5 minutes.
Pull out, spread the tomato sauce and add the rest of the toppings.
Bake for at least 15 more minutes or until the cheese is melted and the dough in nicely cooked.
