However, I recently stumbled across a pizza dough recipe, which lead to me searching for a pizza sauce recipe. I took those and combined it with a few of my own ingredients based of the food list on EatToDefeat.org, which lists foods that fight cancer and had my first attempt at making homemade pizza! The pizza I like to call: Screw C Pizza! The C here meaning Cancer.
The Screw C Pizza ingredient list is below (I'll also link to the recipes later so don't worry about trying to read the list). Anywhere you see a pink * that is an ingredient that, according to the list on EatToDefeat.org, has some research to say it fights cancer. (For more on EatToDefeat.org check this out).
Major cancer fighting properties! Plus it tastes great! It all started out with the pizza dough.
I got the recipe from Jenna at EatLiveRun.com. She has a recipe called The Best Pizza Dough Ever and it is really good! I copied it almost entirely, but I added 2 tsp of ground flaxseed to the dough and a bit more olive oil to compensate for the extra bit of dry ingredients. Flaxseed is one of the foods on EatToDefeat.org and it also has omega-3 in it which can help lower cholesterol. Also, after I rolled out the dough and got the sauce and toppings on, I brushed the outside crust with olive oil and sprinkled on it a mixture of Parmesan cheese and basil. Basil also helps fight cancer.
Cancer fighting ingredients in crust: Olive oil, flaxseed, basil
How To Cook Like Your Grandmother. He has a recipe on making pizza sauce from scratch. Once again I followed this almost completely. The only thing I did differently is that I used no salt added diced tomatoes instead of crushed. They had less sodium, calories, and sugar.
And I minced my first garlic with the help of Drew's instructions!! Look:
The garlic is on the cutting board.
Cancer fighting ingredients in the sauce: tomatoes, onion, basil (in the pesto), oregano, garlic
I rolled out the dough, added pepper, onion, cheese and Mike put pepperoni on his. And viola!
Cancer fighting ingredients in the toppings: pepper, onion. I wanted to add spinach, but I was out of it.
Screw C Pizza
Follow Jenna's recipe and then add 2 tsps of ground flaxseed before you mix the dough and a bit more olive oil while you're mixing. After it's risen and you have rolled it out and topped it, brush olive oil on the outside crust and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and basil.
Follow Drew's recipe, but instead of crushed tomatoes, use no salt added diced tomatoes.
Use any ingredients you want, but I recommend at least two from EatToDefeat.org.
