Default Original Matzoh Crust Pizza.

hi every body i am back with this delicious pizza recipe


Have you ever gone to a Pizza Restaurant and though their crust tasted like matzoh? The original pizza's were made from matzoh:
When the Jews were leaving Egypt, they didn't have time to bake the bread. The bread was baked in the sun, and didn't leaven. Every year since, Jews are not suppose to eat leaven bread, for the days of Passover. Through the ages, the Jewish People have moved around a lot, still eating matzoh every Passover, finding ways to improve the taste, through the countries they are in, still staying within the Passover Laws.
When the Jews were in Rome, again they were eating matzoh on Passover. Tomatoes and cheese were more abundant in Rome than in other countries. The Jews learned from the Romans how to make tomato sauce.

During Passover one year while the Jews were in Rome, one Jewish woman got tired of just having their matzoh plain or with butter on it. She decided to put tomato sauce on it. She liked it but, it wasn't good enough. Next she decided to add garlic and onions and spices to the sauce, but it was still not good enough. Finally she decided to add cheese on top. Mozzarella was the cheapest one at the time, so she bough that. She put all the ingredients on the matzoh, and baked it in the ovens. She tasted it and really liked it. She gave this new concoction to her family and friends. They all liked it. It became very popular, and the new fast food for the time. The only thing it was only eaten for Passover, because that was the only time one could get matzoh. Everybody couldn't wait for Passover to eat this Jewish delicacy.

Original Matzoh Crust Pizza.

1 box matzoh
1 (12 oz.) can tomato paste
12 oz. water
1 tbsp. Italian seasonings
1 tbsp. basil
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1/4 c. minced onions, dried
1 lb. Mozzarella cheese, shredded (cheese own option)

Default Re: Original Matzoh Crust Pizza.

This is ironic. I was actually looking into making matzoh in the oven. Has anyone done this?

There are some recipes on the web, but none for a wood burning oven.
