After a LONG day of school, Bible quizzing, cooking, cleaning, and on and on and on, that phone number to the local pizza place is so TEMPTING! I know that with just the push of a few buttons dinner will arrive fast and hot. However, my bank account will take a hit that it was not expecting and I will have to figure out where that money is going to come from.
ENTER Easy Homemade Pizza Crust! With a just a few ingredients and a little bit of time, I can save some DOUGH (you saw that one coming right?) by making DOUGH!
Easy Homemade Pizza Crust (original recipe)
1 cup warm water
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 1/2 cups bread flour
1 tablespoon yeast
1 heaping tablespoon sugar
Pre-heat your oven to 450 degrees.
Add water, salt and vegetable oil to a large bowl.
Add bread flour, sugar and yeast, mix with a spoon until a soft dough forms.
Put dough onto a floured surface and knead for a few minutes. Then roll out dough, on floured surface, until a little larger than your pizza pan (I use a stone from Pampered Chef). Place the dough onto your pan and roll up the edges to create a lip that will keep your sauce on the pizza while it bakes. Using a fork prick holes in the dough.
Pre-bake your crust in your pre-heated oven for 10 minutes. Take out and top however you like.
Return pizza to the oven and bake another 10 minutes. ENJOY!
