Am I the only one that actually enjoyed the pizza from the high school cafeteria? Maybe I was just lucky and our school had a special recipe that resulted in good pizza. This cafeteria-style pizza is mighty good too. Maybe this is the recipe! It’s definitely easy. It’s mighty tasty. And it makes a big ole pan of pizza in no time. That’s a win for me.
The key to making cafeteria-style pizza is pouring out the batter and getting it nice and even, from pan edge-to-pan edge. It’s actually quite easy to do. And it’s much, much easier than rolling your own dough out, believe me. It’s like making pancakes, really.
I highly recommend that you shred or grate your own cheese at home. Don’t buy the pre-shredded or pre-grated stuff. It has stuff added to it to keep it from sticking together. That ‘stuff’ affects how the cheese melts. Get the real stuff.
You can use whatever toppings you normally like on your pizza. Don’t go crazy with the sauce. You don’t want to drench the dough. A little will go a long ways. In the end you’ll have a great easy pizza!
