DIY RECIPE: homemade pizza from scratch

this is what i fed my GIANT family last night.
(me. my husband. my baby. and my 11 dorm kids)
everyone loved it!
so i thought what a fun recipe to share with you all.
from making to the dough to topping it with your favorite toppings!
lets get started!

okay first you want to make the dough, this is what you'll need:


in a large bowl, or kitchen aid, if you have one, pour in warm water. then lightly sprinkle the yeast into the water. let it sit for five to ten minutes to dissolve. if it doesn't dissolve all the way you can mix it with a spoon. mix in all other ingredients (olive oil, salt, sugar, and flour).
then knead.
knead.
knead.

i did it all by hand.
if it gets sticky you can add some more flour.

okay now that you have mixed everything, it needs to rise.
get a large bowl and coat it in olive oil (so the dough wont stick)
put your dough in bowl and then cover with clear wrap.
let it sit in a warm place for about an hour (or longer) you want it to double in size.

p.s. you can freeze the dough if you need to, for up to a week.
oh, fiy, never re-freeze the dough.

okay, the hard part is over.
now we can do the fun part. the toppings.

i used cheese and sage sausage, my dorm kids don't like veggies.
but you can use whatever you want.

cut the now risen dough in half.
(each half will make an 12 inch pizza)

place on some lightly oiled tin foil and flatten into a circle.
push fingers into dough on outside of circle to create the crust.

now the sauce.
i just use my favorite spaghetti sauce, you can too.
you'll want to put a very light layer of oil on the dough
this makes sure the sauce doesn't seep through and make the bread soggy.

now add the rest of your toppings.

pre-heat the over to 450.
it will take between 10 to 15 minutes to bake.

and enjoy.

trust me it's good!
