Recipe: Easy Homemade Pizza Dough
However we do love making it from scratch. I love knowing what ingredients are going into what I'm making. Just the other day I was pondering on the fact that is seems I'm always doing dishes, and that there are always a lot of dishes throughout the day. But it's because almost everything we make is homemade, not many microwave things here. Trust me, there are days I'd love to have more quick, convenient foods around the house.
Back to the pizza. The other day I found a recipe on Allrecipes that is so quick and easy it will become a regular on our pizza making days.When you make things from scratch, finding a recipe that is quick and easy is wonderful.
**Note: I doubled this recipe and it made two pizzas.
Here's what you need for one 12-inch crust:
Add flour, salt and oil, stirring to combine. Let stand 5 minutes. I was doing this by hand so actually needed to knead in some of the flour (when it got too hard to stir), then I let it sit on my baking mat.
Add toppings and bake in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until done. I adjusted my temperature a few times to ensure my topping got heated through and the crust didn't burn.
Here's what I made:
One pizza with 1/2 pepperoni, cheese and olives, and 1/2 BBQ Chicken pizza with olives and peppers and mushrooms on a little part of it.
One pizza with 1/2 Pesto, Chicken, spinach, tomato, mushroom and olives, and 1/2 reg. pizza sauce with chicken.
I'll try this recipe this summer when we grill pizza outside. Yummy! Can't wait!
