I don't know why, but we've never made homemade pizza in this house! One night, as I was looking at my Pinterest, I saw that I had pinned several pizza ideas. I decided that it was time to gather up the kids and get in the kitchen!! It turned out to be so easy and fun. We only had one diversion when there was a little skirmish over who was going to get to put the bell peppers on top. Sheesh. Well, we never claimed to be perfect. hahaha! So, most of you are old pros at this, but for you newbies like me, here's how we did it!
You will need:
CRUST:1 3/4 - 2 1/4 cups of flour1 envelope Fleischmann’s® Pizza Yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup of very warm water (120° to 130° F)
3 tablespoons oil
Sauce of your choice
Toppings of your choiceombine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Add water and oil. Mix together until well blended; about 1 minute. Add ½ cup flour gradually until dough forms a ball. Add additional flour, if needed, to handle. Spoon dough out of bowl onto floured surface. Dough will be slightly sticky. Knead on floured surface. Knead until dough is smooth and elastic; about 4 minutes.
Press dough out to fill pizza pan. We didn't need to grease our stones, but you may have to grease yours if it's a pan. We also sprinkled on some dry Italian seasonings.
Psalm 34:8~"O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him."
