Homemade Pizza Crust
This has become our all time favorite pizza crust recipe. It is so easy and so delicious.
Pizza Crust Recipe:
OLIVE OIL MIXTURE:
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. granulated garlic or garlic powder
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1 package of yeast or 2 1/4 tsp yeast
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 cup warm water
Mix well and let stand for 10 minutes.
Now add olive oil mixture to the yeast mixture.
Add 2 1/2 cups flour.
Mix until it forms dough.
Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll out dough. This makes one large cookie sheet or a 16″ crust.
Transfer dough onto a greased pizza pan or cookie sheet.
Spread with desired toppings and bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
This is a wonderful herb dough that is so delicious. You do not have to let the dough raise but I will often let it sit on the oven for a half hour once I have placed it on the pizza pan and before I add my toppings. Also, you can double this recipe and it works great. Sometimes we need to make two if the boys invite friends.
I also wanted to mention our favorite sauce (made in Pennyslvania) , Del Grosso pizza sauce. It is by far the best sauce I have found. All varieties are great but we especially love the pepperoni-flavored sauce.
