Make Your Own Pizza

Searching another blog the other day, I discovered a seemingly easy recipe for pizza dough. Tonight I decided to make the dough and then I made all sorts of weird shapes as the pizzas. I had the kids come over and pick their dough and they made their own pizzas. It was a lot of fun, the kids had a blast and the pizza was delicious!

Here is the recipe:
1T. yeast
1 C. water
1 t. sugar
1 t. salt
2 T. oil
2 1/2 C. flour

Dissolve the yeast in the water and then add all the rest of the ingredients. Knead it for five or ten minutes. Make the pizza how you like and then bake for 12-15 min. at 450 degrees.

I tripled the recipe and we had six personal size pizzas (8 or 9 inch diameter) and one large (12-14 inch diameter). The dough was thick like I like it. You don't have to let it rise, it does everything in the oven.

It was a raving success! Everyone loved the dough, and of course, the pizza, since they made them. We will be doing this again. I realized as I was eating, that I forgot to take pictures.
