Pizza is all-time favorite food. I know you would think it would be chicken, but it is actually pizza. I could eat pizza every meal -really! I have started to experiment with making my own dough - it is just hard to do after work. Most dough takes hours to rise and I just don't want to wait that long on a weeknight. This recipe didn't require a long rising time so I gave it a shot. It was really good. It was a little thicker that I normally make our crust, but it was nice and crispy. Best of all it was a breeze to throw together.
Got a Little Space
1 packet yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
1 cup warm water
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat oven to 400F. In a large bowl, combine the yeast and warm water and stir until the yeast dissolves. Add the flour, salt, honey and olive oil; stir to combine using first a wooden spoon then your hands. Let dough rest for 10 minutes.
Sprinkle baking sheet with cornmeal and press dough into it to your desired thickness. Top with your toppings and bake for approximately half an hour or until crust is golden, toppings are heated through and cheese is bubbly.
