Family Pizza Night

Making homemade pizza as a family is a great way to enjoy a Friday evening at home and encourage healthy eating.  We love to make this homemade crust and then let each person add their own toppings.  We use lots of fresh vegis including spinach, tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, and jalapenos.  Don’t let the homemade crust intimidate you.  It’s really very easy!

Ingredients

1 cup warm water

1 tablespoon white sugar

2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

1 teaspoon salt

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

1.  Stir water, sugar and yeast together until dissolved. Add the olive oil and the salt. Stir in the flour until well blended. Let dough rest for 10 minutes.

2. Pat dough into pan or on to a pizza stone using fingers dipped in olive oil. If desired sprinkle basil, thyme or other seasonings on crust. Top with your favorite pizza toppings and bake for 15 to 20 minutes in a preheated 425 degree oven.
