Pizza Crust

I always make my Pizza Crust while the kids are napping, then it is super easy to put the topping on and throw it in the oven for dinner.

Pizza Crust

2 tablespoons + 1 Teaspoon Olive Oil

½ cup warm water about 80°

1 cup All-purpose Flour

2/3 cup Wheat Flour

½ teaspoon Salt

2 ¼ teaspoons or 1 package active dry Yeast

Bread Maker- Place ingredients in as listed, wet ingredients first and then dry ingredients. Set to Pizza Dough setting.

By Hand- Mix the flour, yeast, and salt. Make a well and add the oil and water. Work in the flour to make soft dough.

Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 10 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic. Rub a little olive oil on the dough and place in a bowl covered with a towel. Let rise for 1 hour until double in size.

Use or freeze.

To use- Pull and stretch or roll dough to desired thickness. If time allow cover the dough to sit and rise again for 30-40 min. Brush with a little olive oil and place toppings on top.

Bake at 350° for 15-20 min.
