Pizza Dough

This is actually a breadstick and pizza dough recipe. We tried it out on pizza the other night and it was really good and really easy.

Pizza Dough

1 1/2 cup warm water
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 Tablespoon yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
3-4 1/2 cups flour

In your mixer (or bowl), combine water, sugar, and yeast. Let stand for 10 minutes or unitl the yeast is bubbly.

Add the salt and stir. Add 1 1/2 cups flour and mix well. Gradually add more flour (usually 3-4 cups) until dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl and it barely sticks to your finger.

Spray a glass or metal bowl with cooking spray and place dough in the bowl. Cover and allow to rise for 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk. (I didn't wait quite that long...just long enough for me to get all of the fixin's for the pizza ready.)

Remove from bowl and place on a lightly-floured surface. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Roll in to a circle (or square if you like square pizza:)) and place on your baking pan.

Now you're ready for your toppings. I drizzle a little olive oil on the crust and then spread your favorite pizza sauce over that. Next come oodles of Mozerrella and then whatever toppings your family likes.

We had Canadian Bacon, pineapple, and green peppers on one (my favorite!) and then a surpreme for the other (Tony's favorite). The surpreme we had pepperoni, sausage, roasted red and green peppers (leftover from this recipe), red onion, and olives. They were both so yummy! I also like to sprinkle just a little bit of mozerrella after all the toppings have been put on.

Bake in your preheated oven at 425 for 12-15 minutes. Our supreme pizza needed to be baked longer because it had so many goodies on it to make sure the dough in the middle was cooked.

This recipe will make one 16" pizza crust.

Nothing is better than some home-made pizza!!
