  Part of our weekly menu at our house is having pizza every Friday night.  We do not order out, we make it together from scratch.  Figured some of you may like to try out our recipe and make it a weekly tradition at your home too so here you go:

Pizza Crust

               1 pkg. yeast                                                                       1/2 tsp. sugar
               1 1/2 c. warm water                                                             1 tsp. salt
               2 T. olive oil                                                                         3 1/3 c. flour

     In a large bowl, dissolve yeast, sugar, and 1/4 c. of the warm water.  Let it process and activate for 10 minutes.  Next stir in the rest of the water, the salt, and the oil.  Stir.  Then add in 2 1/2 c. of the flour.  Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead.  Add rest of the flour as needed.

Dough before rising
 Spray a bowl with cooking spray and place dough in a warm area to rise and cover it with a dish towel.  After 25 minutes, punch down the dough and form it into a tight ball.  Leave it alone for 10 minutes.  Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Roll out the dough to desired thickness.  You can make one pizza for a nice thick crust or divide it into 2 equal sizes and roll out for two thinner crusts.

Rolled out dough in the pan.  It isn't pretty but it tastes great!
 Top with pizza sauce (recipe follows) and your favorite toppings.  Bake for 17 minutes then remove and enjoy!

  1. Oh yum! My mother in law makes homemade pizza and it is better than ordering out, so I can imagine! What a fun tradition you have with your family.

  2. Nicole, thank you! Yes, homemade is the best! I think it is important to have traditions with my family. Many families I know, never sit down for a meal together and it is important to do so.

  3. We love home made pizza and make it about twice per month. We also use string cheese, pulled apart in halves, to make stuffed crust pizza. :)

    1. I love the idea of stuffed crust pizza. Do you just roll the string cheese into the outside crust area?
