1 1/2 cups warm water
1 T yeast
1 t sugar
1 t salt
3 cups flour
2 T vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all ingredients into a large bowl until it looks like dough. Knead over a lightly floured surface for 10 minutes. Spread over greased pizza pan. Let rise for 10 minutes. Precook 10 minutes tops. Cook 10-15 minutes. Serves. Makes 2 pizza crusts.
Now here's for the toppings:
You can go with your standard pepperoni and cheese (which my kids and husband love)...
So, when we don't have mozzarella, I use cheddar. It's yummy too...
Or, you could mix it up a bit. Here's what I put on my pizza...
So, here I have tomatoes, mushrooms, green onions, orange peppers, slightly steamed asparagus, feta and cheddar cheeses, and of course a little italian seasoning to top it off. Yum!!!
If you're wanting to mix it up and have something the whole family loves, our family favorite is BBQ chicken. Instead of marinara sauce, I mix ranch and BBQ sauce together for the base, then cook my chicken strips in a frying pan with a little more BBQ sauce. You can leave it at that or add mushrooms, tomatoes, or whatever other toppings you like.
