PIZZA PIZZA PIZZA

If you didn't know already PIZZA is a favorite in our house. . . Eddie would probably eat pizza every day if he could and it is something we always have the ingredients for along with 1 or 2 frozen pizzas in the freezer.

With that said I have always made my pizza with store bought crust whether it be pre-made crust from Trader Joe's or in a can from various grocery stores (next to the can of biscuits). However last week I got the crazy idea to make it myself and with the help of my secret ingredient it is super simple. . . Thank You Pizza Crust Yeast!!!!!

Homemade Pizza Crust
Ingredients:
-3 cups Flour
-1 packet Pizza Crust Yeast
-1 1/4 cups Warm Water
-1/2 teaspoon Salt
-1 tablespoon Honey
-1 tablespoon Olive Oil

Directions:
1) Place 1 cup of flour into a mixing bowl followed by the yeast, water, salt, honey, and olive oil
2) Turn mixer on low or use hands to mix all the ingredients together
3) Slowly add the remaining 2 cups of flour until a dough ball forms

NOTES/TIPS:
-Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes if using a pizza stone
-Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes if using a baking sheet
-Depending on the day you may need more water or flour
-I did this recipe with whole wheat flour and worked just as well as white flour
-I have been asked many times how I make my stuffed crust pizzas, below is my step by step

STEP 1
-Roll out pizza dough to a little bit larger than size wanted

STEP 2
-Place dough on a pizza stone or any other baking pan (doesn't have to be a circle you can use square shaped pans too
STEP 3
-Place string cheese in a circle on the outside boarder of your pan

STEP 4
-Going around the circle fold the extra dough over the string cheese trimming the dough as needed
STEP 5
-Brush olive oil all over the crust and sprinkle with a little salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning then Fill the middle with sauce, cheese, and your favorite pizza topping

STEP 6
-Cook according to recipe adding 5-minutes to the cooking time for the stuffed crust to cook fully
