One of my families favorite traditions is Friday Night Pizza and Family Movie Night. I started making homemade pizza instead of ordering take out. It has been such a good change. It saves us a lot of money not having to pay for take out. It also tastes so so so much better than any of your regular pizza chain. ANNNNDDD it’s healthier. So basically a win all around in my book. I wanted to share with you my favorite pizza crust recipe I have found. I hope your family will love it as much as mine.
Sweet Frugal Life
Homemade Pizza Crust
2 ¼ tsp yeast
1 cup warm water (baby bath temp)
2 TBSP olive oil
1 tsp salt
2 ¼ cups flour
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In mixer lightly mix water and yeast together. Let sit for 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy.
Add the oil, salt, sugar and flour to the yeast mixture. Mix well. You may need a little less or little more flour. You want the dough to bounce back if you poke it. I also usually keep the dough slightly sticky.
Put dough into greased bowl and cover with a dishcloth. Let rise for 30-60 minutes until doubled. I will usually put it next to the flour or in the sun to speed up the rising process.
Place dough on lightly floured surface. Roll out into a pizza shape. (If you don’t have a pizza pan, just use a cookie sheet. It works great!) Place on greased pan. Poke all over with a fork. Cover with your favorite toppings.
Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.
