Pizza crust

It goes to figure that as soon as I decide to do NaBloPoMo that I then get a crazy day with a needy baby and no time on the computer. BUT I did make calzones tonight because my friend shared this easy and tasty recipe with me (thanks Em!) None of my kids like pizza, but they actually ate this! It's picky eater approved and now I want to share it with you.

The Dough:

  • 1 pkg active yeast (I figure that is a little less than 1 T or 2 2/3 tsp)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 T oil
  • 1 c. warm water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 c. flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in remaining ingredients; beat well with spoon or fork. Let rest 5 minutes. Mix dough and place in cookie sheet. It takes some stretching, but keep trying.

I added toppings based on everyone's likes and baked it at 425 for 15 minutes and they were good! I promise they looked yummy too. I think I want to try bread sticks with it soon. Did I mention it was easy? And fast? And possibly versatile? I'm wondering about using wheat flour next time. hmmmm


  1. Wait wait wait. Did you just say that none of your kids like pizza? They would have died of starvation at my house during the first trimester.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Hope to try it this weekend!!! Thanks!!

  3. Mandy, it's true. I have to bring sandwiches to every school and church pizza party.
