Quick and Easy homemade pizza dough
Easy enough to stop me from buying store bought dough, as long as I have yeast on hand. Which I started buying in bulk.
Makes two dough balls:
3 cups flour
1 package (.25 oz) active dry yeast
2 T vegetable oil
1 t salt
1 T sugar
1 cup warm water (110 degrees)
1. Combine flour, salt, sugar, and yeast in a large bowl.
2. Add in oil and water.
3. Lay out on your pizza pan.
4. Top as you want. (Trick is to go light on sauce, light on cheese, light on veggies- or it won't cook right.)
I bagged the second ball and kept it in the fridge for a week.
Idea for toppings:
sliced red onion
fresh grated cheese
(or whatever I had)
Heat oven to 500°. Place a pizza stone on bottom rack (or use an inverted baking sheet, not heated).
Set crust on a sheet of parchment paper.
Top with tomato sauce, mozzarella, and veggies
(I like my veggies
of the cheese).
Cook pie on stone until cheese melts and crust is golden, 5 to 10 minutes.
(sometimes I go 12 min)
Cut each into 6 slices.
