Easy homemade pizza.

Tools:

  • Mixing bowl
  • Pizza pan

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil (plus some extra for coating things)
  • 1tbsp Garlic, powder or diced
  • 1tbsp lemon juice
  • 8oz can of tomato sauce
  • 8oz shredded Mozarella Cheese
  • 1tbsp Italian seasoning
  • Any toppings you want. (1/4lb ground meats per pizza is a good guage. The picture below was made with 1/2lb, and was too much)

Process:

  1. Dissolve 2 Tbsp of sugar into the water in a mixing bowl.
  2. Sprinkle yeast on top of water. Do not mix. Allow 10 minutes or so for the yeast to become a bit frothy.
  3. Mix in the flour, salt, and olive oil. Knead until thoroughly mixed and doughy.
  4. Coat the ball of dough with a bit of olive oil. Cover and allow to rise for an hour.
  5. Mix tomato sauce, 1tbsp sugar, garlic, Italian seasoning, and lemon juice.
  6. While dough is still rising, this is a great time to prepare toppings. Make sure meats are cooked.
  7. Thinly oil the pizza pan, and spread dough out into a 12″ circle with a pinched-up crust. Perforate with a fork, like a saltine cracker.
  8. Pour tomato sauce mix into the crust, spread out evenly.
  9. Sprinkle cheese evenly.
  10. Add toppings.
  11. Bake at 450F for 15 minutes.
  12. Serve.
