What's Cookin' Linky Party {Homemade Pizza Crust}


I am linking up with Susan over at TGIF in her What's Cookin' Good Lookin'? linky party.

We are pizza lovers at my house.  We eat it at least once every 2 weeks.  If Colton had his choice, we would have pizza every day.  lol

Quite a few years ago my husband and I would buy those tubes of pizza crust at the store to make our pizza.  One night we really, really wanted pizza, but neither of us wanted to run to the store.  So my husband went digging on the internet and found this recipe.  I wish I could share where he got this recipe, but honestly I haven't seen the actual recipe in years.  This is one of those recipes that we use so much that I have it memorized.  If you know who's recipe this is, I would love to give credit.

Ingredients:
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (or one small packet)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup hot water
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil

Steps:
1.  Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Put yeast and sugar in a bowl and add hot water.  Let rise for 10 minutes.
This is what it should look like after it rises.

2.  Add flour, salt, and olive oil.  Mix until it forms a ball.  (I use my trusty Kitchenaid Mixer.)  Let rise another 10 minutes.

3.  Spread dough out on sprayed pan.  Then cook for 8 minutes.

4.  Removed from oven.  Add desired toppings and return to oven until cheese is melted (approximately 12 minutes).

Ready to eat!

We made hamburger and pepperoni on this occasion, but we have also used this pizza dough to make bbq chicken pizza, cheese pizza, and even a pirate ship pizza.  :)


Click on the picture below to download this very easy pizza crust recipe.  We also use this recipe to make garlic breadsticks.  The directions for breadsticks are included at the bottom of the recipe.

I hope you try this recipe.  It is the best homemade crust that I have ever had.  Make sure to jump over to Susan's blog too to check out all of the other great recipes.
