Thick Crust Meat Feast Pizza

Meat feast pizza is a tasty combination of sausage, ham, pepperoni, vegetables and more sitting on a wonderful thick crust pizza crust. This meat pizza is easy to make and if you like meat, you will love the richness of it. If you are going to use self rising flour in the pizza dough recipe, this will give the same results but make sure you leave the salt out.

Feel free to add any other meat you like, such as turkey, chicken, or ground beef and any other vegetables such as corn, spinach, fresh tomatoes, or zucchini. Because the dough is so puffy, you can be flexible with the amount of ingredients you use for the pizza topping because this meat feast pizza holds a lot.

The recipe suggests making your own dough but of course you may use prepared dough if you are in a rush or if you would prefer to. If you are curious about homemade pizza dough though, definitely give it a go because it is simple to make and tastes fresher than anything made beforehand.

This pizza is a nice choice if you want something well-balanced, because you get meaty flavors in every bite as well as vegetables and herbs, so it is well-rounded. Feel free to add anything else you want though, to either the crust mixture or the topping. Some people like to use herbs or parmesan cheese in their pizza crust dough, so that is possible if you wish to make your own and add a special touch. This pizza makes a wonderful weeknight dinner for the whole family.

Photo Description:

This photo shows you how tempting a thicker crust looks when making pizza, although thin, crispy ones can also be good. On top of the crust you have a tasty tomato and sausage sauce with herbs in it, and then some ham, onion, mushrooms and cheese. Everyone in the family will love this. If someone is not keen on ham though, for example, you can only put ham on ¾ of the pizza instead of all over it. That way, the ham fans get the ham and anyone who does not will not have to pick it off. This recipe is a good all-rounder and the homemade crust is certainly one you will want to make again and again.
