Home Made Pizza Crust

Easy to make but plan ahead to allow time for dough to rise. A home made crust is so good but there are many commercial available crusts as well. Check with your favorite pizza place, they may sell you a pre-made crust. All you have to do is top with your favorite toppings and bake.

I get my crusts from SAM's Club

Makes a 14 inch pizza crust


1 teaspoon active dry yeast
¾ cup warm water
1 ¾ cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt


In a small bowl dissolve yeast in warm water; let stand 5 minutes. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar and salt. Add yeast mixture and oil. Stir until combined. Turn out onto a well floured surface. Knead gently about 20 times or until a soft dough forms. Place dough in a greased bowl and let rise until double, about 60 minutes.

Roll dough out on a lightly oiled pizza pan or baking sheet. Cook 10-15 minutes in a 375 degree preheated oven.

Top with favorite ingredients and continue to cook until done about 15-20 minutes.
