Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe
1 package of yeast or 21/4 teaspoons of yeast 1 cup of hot water
1 cup of white flour
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
wheat flour, enough so dough isn't sticky - about 2 cups
Pour hot water into large bowl. Add yeast. After yeast has dissolved add white flour. Stir to combine. Add oil and salt. Stir. Stir in wheat flour until dough is firm enough to knead. Knead dough on floured surface adding more flour as needed until dough is no longer sticky. Return to bowl and place in oven to rise. After dough has risen desired amount remove from oven and roll dough out on a floured surface. Place dough on pizza stone and cook for 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven and put on desired toppings.
Yield: 1 thick crust medium round crust or 1 thinner large rectangle crust
This dough can be rushed. I've often gone straight from kneading to rolling and placing on pizza stone. I turn the oven on low and let the dough rise for 10-15 minutes before cooking it at 350. I like to pre-cook the dough before putting the toppings on.
My family asks for this pizza all the time. It's a great way to use wheat flour. If your family isn't accustomed to wheat flour start with a high ratio of white and slowly work toward more wheat. My husband now prefers this pizza crust to restaurant pizza.
