Easy Pizza Crust

Yum
I make a lot of pizzas around here!
From the crust to the toppings, THE BEST homemade pizzas!
You know what I realized?  I have never focused much on the crust.  Sometimes I change it up, but this is my go to crust recipe. 
Check it out...


Simple, yet the perfect flavor for any pizza toppings you choose.

Just make the dough...


Let sit and rise and then roll out...


Bake for a few minutes, then add the toppings and return to the oven...


for your own home-made pizza.


Here's how to make the crust...
Ingredients:
3 cups flour
1 packet quick rise yeast
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp honey
1 cup warm water
Directions:
In a large bowl, place flour, yeast, sugar and salt.  Add warm water, olive oil and honey.  Stir until combined and shape into a ball.  Cover with plastic wrap and then a towel.  Let rise for 1 hour.  After dough has risen, roll out dough into desired thickness.  Place dough onto a lightly greased baking sheet.  Place in a 375 degree oven for 5-6 minutes.   Remove from a top with your favorite pizza toppings.  Place pizza back into oven and bake until cheese is bubbly (baking time depends on quantity of toppings).

I am telling you, once you have made your own crust, you won't ever want another.  
So fresh!

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet,
Christine
