Happy Friday everyone! And what better thing to eat on a Friday evening than pizza? Right?!?
But say you’re watching those pennies and ordering out is a bit expensive atm. Or, you’re like me and are a bit of a pizza snob – plastic cheese with a side of grease are not my thing…
I have the solution!
Homemade pizza crust and (in my next post) homemade pizza sauce…
- 1 c lukewarm water
- 1 pkg active dry yeast
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1/3 Tbsp salt
- 1/4 c cooking oil or applesauce
- all purpose flour
Pour package of yeast on the cup of water. Add sugar and let ferment for 1/2 hour. Add cooking oil/applesauce and salt. Stir with spoon. Add flour a little at a time until thick enough for kneading. Knead dough until firm, let rise 2-3 hours. [I put dough in greased bowl covered with saran wrap snuggly fit with rubberbands].
After dough rises, separate into 3 balls and roll out to fit pan. Top with sauce, parsley, cheese and any toppings. Cook in preheated oven at 400 degrees for 18 min. Eat!
