Pizza Dough

I am famous (if I do say so myself) among my friends and family for my homemade pizza. Homemade dough makes all the difference and it is so easy to make! The smell alone is worth making it!
1&2. proofing, 3. dough ball, 4. Rolled out dough

1 pk active dry yeast
1 cup lukewarm milk
1Tbs sugar or honey
pinch of salt
3 cups of flour

Mix together yeast, sugar, salt, and water and let sit until it has bubbled up (proofed). After this start incorporating your flour. Depending on the weather it may not take all of the flour so add it a little at a time. Once the dough is pliable but no longer sticky turn it out onto a flat dry surface dusted with flour. Knead the dough, place it in a bowl coated with olive oil and cover with a damp towel. Leave the dough to rise until it has doubled. Punch it down and repeat if you desire- not sure if this makes a difference, I never do it... ;)
finally roll or stretch your dough to your preferred thickness and place it on your pan.

Top it however you like. I use olive oil instead of pizza sauce, and the rest is up to you!

Linking with pincushion creations today!

  1. When we lived in IL I made my own dough a few times and it was always so yummy! I really need to get back into it. I think I will try your recipe :)
