Foodie Love ~ Homemade Pizza

Home made pizza is THE BEST!

I really love the sweetness and freshness of home made dough. It also helps that making your own pizza dough costs substantially less than ordering in a pizza. We are still trying to see if we can live on one income and one of the items we are cutting back on is eating out. Finding a great pizza dough recipe so that we could still have family pizza nights was one of my top priorities. I found this recipe and it was a total hit with David and Sydney. Looks like we have a delicious winner!

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

The Necessities:
~ 3/4 Cup of Warm Water
~ 1/2 Tbs of Yeast
~ 1 Tbs of Sugar
~ 1/2 Tbs of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
~ 1/4 Tsp of Salt
~ 1 1/2 Cups of Flour

The Process:
~ Dissolve Yeast in warm water and let sit until the top becomes foamy
~ Add olive oil, salt and flour to the yeast mixture and stir until it balls up. Add flour as needed. 
~ Remove from the bowl, spray the bowl with cooking spray, place dough back into mixing bowl, cover and let sit for 30 minutes
~ Place dough on greased pizza pan and roll out
~ Allow to rise for an additional 10-15 minutes
~ Heat oven to 425F
~ Bake crust for 5-7 minutes to dry dough out
~ Remove from the oven and add pizza sauce, toppings and cheese
~ Return to the oven and bake for an additional 11-12 minutes
~ Enjoy!
