Pizza!! (recipe posted too!!)
I think I have discovered the best homemade pizza possible! I have always had trouble getting my dough the correct texture that I wanted. Here's my recipe and how I prepare it!
3/4 cup hot water (105-115 degrees)
1 tablespoon yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour (approx.)
Mix water, yeast, and suger in mixing bowl. Allow to set for about 10 minutes. Add salt and flour. Mix well. Either knead on a floured surface or mix in a Kitchen Aid mixer using the bread hook for about five minutes. Put dough in an oiled bowl for about 30 minutes in a warm area. Roll dough into a circle to fit a baking stone or a greased pizza pan. Using a fork, poke holes in the dough all over the circle. Using a pastry brush, very lightly cover the dough with olive oil. Do not use too much, you want it just a light coating. Bake the crust in a preheated over at 425 degrees for about 8-10 minutes. Remove the crust and top with pizza sauce, cheese , pepperoni, or whatever toppings you prefer. Return pizza to over and allow to bake 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!
Let me know what you think of the pizza after you try it!
