Pizza, as usual, is an all around child-pleaser in my household. Especially when I have a little time to make a homemade crust and they can top their own to their liking. I've tried a few from online, but today I decided to use an actual real book from the cookbook cabinet for a change.
The pizza dough recipe is all the way in the back of the book. I've doubled it tonight to have some dough to freeze for later.
1 TBSP dry yeast
3/4 C + 2 TBSP warm water
1 TBSP olive oil
2 3/4 C all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
(Again, i doubled mine today)
Measure out your flour and salt, add it to the yeast mix by 1/2 C amounts until the dough is smooth and not sticky.
Then you wait. Put the dough into an oiled bowl (or into your warm oven), covered with a piece of plastic wrap until it rises to about double it's size.
I turn my oven onto it's WARM setting before getting my ingredients together. Then I turn it off so it stays around 130 degrees in there.
Then it's pizza making time!
