Homemade Pizza

Is friday night pizza night at your house? Instead of ordering in, whip up some homemade (and healthier) pizza! Get the whole family involved in picking out and prepping pizza toppings. A fun and unique family dinner is in store tonight.


Crust Ingredients:
1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon salt
3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1. In large bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in water; let stand for 5 minutes. Add oil and salt. Stir in flour, a cup at a time, until a soft dough forms.
2. Turn onto floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 2-3 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
3. Punch down dough; divide in half. Press each into a greased 12-in. pizza pan.
4. Top with either homemade or canned tomato sauce and your favorite toppings! (cook all raw meats prior to topping pizza)
5. Bake at 400 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.

Yield: 2 pizzas
