Homemade Pizza

I got this recipe from Jen. My whole family loves this homemade pizza.

1 cup warm water
1 Tbsp instant yeast
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 ½ Tbsp oil
about 2 ½ - 3 cups flour

Add the water, yeast and sugar first. Then salt, oil and flour. Mix until bread is pulling away from side of the bowl. Mix for about 4 minutes or knead till elastic. Let rest for a few minutes. Roll dough into desired shape. Poke with a fork to avoid bubbles, then top with canned pizza sauce, grated mozzarella cheese, and desired toppings. Bake at 450° for 10-14 minutes. Crust should be slightly brown.

Variation: Ham and Broccoli Roll
Make bread dough. Roll out ¼” thick. Spread ham, broccoli, and cheese over the dough. Roll up like a cinnamon roll. Cut into ½ - 1 inch thick slices. Place on greased cookie sheet so they aren’t touching but will tough when they rise. Bake on 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on top.

Tip: Let your kids slice the olives with an egg slicer. They love to help and they can't cut their fingers with it.
