Quick and Easy Homemade Pizza
Tuesday night is "Family Night" at our house. I've been using this pizza recipe since January and it always gets eaten right up! It will make two thin crusts, but I usually double it since the crust is the best part. :0)
Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
1 (.25) package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup warm water (110F degrees)
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat oven to 450F. In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
2. Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth. Let rest for 10 minutes.
3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a circle. Transfer to a lightly greased pizza pan.
4. Spread with desired toppings and bake 15-20 minutes.
