Homemade Pizza

I've already posted my Pizza Dough on the blog but this is a step by step of how I make the pizza.
I used my Pizza Dough recipe and just change the toppings to whatever we feel like that day, or what I have available in the fridge......


1 pkg. Quick Rise dry yeast (Red Star)
1 c. lukewarm water
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tbsp. honey
2 1/2 c. flour

In a bowl add 1 cup of lukewarm water and 1 pkg. dry yeast and mix.

Next goes in two tablespoon of oil, 1 tablespoon of honey, then 2 1/2 cups of flour

Now stick your hands in there and mix it up good....I like this part LOL

Cover with a dish towel and let it sit for 5 minutes

In the meantime you can gather your toppings

I used pepperoni, green pepper, onion, mushrooms and cheese....but really you can throw everything in there, well maybe not the kitchen sink......
Uncover the dough and I like to sprinkle some flour on top just so it's easier to remove it without it sticking to everything.

Spray your pizza pan with some non stick cooking spray and throw drop the dough in the middle.

Starting in the middle, using my fingers, I start to push and stretch the dough towards the edges until it covers the whole pan. Now mind you, I'm using a HUGE pizza pan so it will be a thin crust....if you want a thicker, deep dish crust, just double the recipe.
Throw on your toppings and don't forget the cheese.....and pop it into 450º oven for about 10-12 minutes.
