This is the easiest pizza to make and so delicious. It only takes 30 to 40 minutes from start to finish (including baking time). This is a regular meal in our house and the kids love helping. We add a little more sugar to the crust since we like a sweet crust. Updating an old post, so you may have seen this recipe before.
1 Tbsp. active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees F.)
1 to 2 Tbsp. sugar or sucanat (We use 2 Tbsp.)
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 1/2 cups flour
Dissolve the yeast in the water. Add the rest of the ingredients in and mix.
Dump onto a floured surface.
Knead into a smooth dough (five minutes or so).
Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface and then press down onto a greased pizza pan.
Next add pizza sauce, then cheese. Follow with toppings.
(Have fun and be creative with this! Our favorite is pepperoni, pineapple, onion and cheese.)
Bake at 450 degrees F. for around 12-15 minutes until the crust looks crispy and lightly browned.
By the way, you can make up a double or triple batch of the pizza crust dough and freeze the extras if you don’t need it. This speeds up the preparation even more as all you have to do is pull out a bag of dough in the morning and then put the pizza together right before you’re ready to eat.
