Homemade Pizza {Recipe}


My husband LOVES pizza and I love making it for him! :-)  Here's my favorite recipe for pizza dough (as promised on Monday in my Menu Plan post) - it turns out perfect every time and is so easy!  I'm planning on making this on Saturday - another plus for me with this recipe is that there's enough for several meals for us! :-)  This is actually half of the original recipe as I only need to make 1 pizza at this time for us. :-)

Ingredients:

1 1⁄2 cups warm water
1 1⁄2 tablespoons yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons coconut oil
3 1⁄2 - 4 cups All Purpose Flour
Pizza Sauce
Desired Toppings

Directions:

Mix warm water, yeast, sugar, salt & oil. Start adding flour 1 cup at a time, until it forms a ball that comes away from the sides of the bowl. The dough should be soft and tacky, but not enough to stick to your hands. If the dough is sticking to your hands, add a heaping tablespoon of flour one at a time until the dough is the right consistency.

Form into a ball and place in an oiled bowl. Cover and set in a warm place until doubled.

Place dough on an oiled pizza pan and roll or press out to size.

Top with approximately 1 1/2 cups of sauce, 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese. Then add other desired toppings to taste.

Cook at 425 until the cheese is brown and bubbly and the bottom of the crust has browned.

Do you have pizza lovers in your home?  What's your favorite recipe for pizza?

Yum! We love homemade pizza! I've been using the light wheat recipe from Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day for our crust and it turns out great! I love that I can have the dough ready in the fridge days ahead, ready to pull out and whip up a pizza :-)

I would have never thought to use coconut oil, how cool! I also love that you can just have the dough on hand. Thanks for linking up with Delicious Dish Tuesday :) If you wouldn't mind providing a link back to the hop we would appreciate it.

we love pizza! But we have never used coconut oil in the crust. Will have to give that a try!
