Pizza Crust

This is the recipe I used for Girls Night at Jamie's a few months ago. We're eating it tonight so I thought I'd share!

Combine: 1 Tbs yeast

1 C. warm water

1 tsp sugar

Add: 1 tsp salt

2 Tbs vegetable oil

2 1/2 C flour

Mix together, knead with hand and let rise 10 minutes. Roll out onto pizza pan, poke holes with fork. Pre-cook five minutes, add sauce and toppings and cook for remaining 20-25 minutes.


My favorite sauce is Hannaford brand roasted garlic but this is a good homemade recipe:

14.5 oz diced tomatoes

14.5 oz tomato sauce

1 C. chopped onion

2 Tbs dried basil

2 tsp dried oregano

2 Tbs sugar

4 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 tsp pepper

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, or until onion is tender. This makes enough sauce for 2-4 pizzas, depending on how much sauce you like. You can freeze the remaining sauce in zip-lock bags, each bag containing enough sauce for one pizza.

We make pizza at least once a week, can't wait to try the new dough recipe. I normally use olive oil, but I'll try the veg oil instead. At what temp do you bake the pizza?
