We love homemade pizza here in our house and the kids love to help us make it! We will make it for birthdays, friends, movie night or anything else we can find an excuse to make it for. This dough recipe is the best I have found. There is no waiting for the dough to rise. Just make it, roll it, top it and bake it! Here is what you need… (p.s. this is the same dough recipe I used to make the Heart Shaped Calzones)
- 1 pkg. active yeast (about 2.5 tsp.)
- 1 c. warm water
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 T. oil
- 2.5 c. flour
- 1 pizza pan or Jelly Roll pan – pre-greased
*Note: I will make 1.5x this recipe for 1 Jelly Roll pan/cookie sheet size pizza
- Pizza Sauce (I use Hunt’s Mushrooms or Garlic and Herb canned spaghetti sauce – 1 26.5 oz can will make 2 to 3 Jelly Roll pan/cookie sheet size pizzas)
- Any favorite toppings: sausage, pepperoni, peppers and tomatoes are our favorites
- Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
