The other day I wanted to make some bread sticks to go along with our spaghetti dinner. I made the dough and let it sit. After an hour I checked on it and it was as flat as could be. I was so disappointed. Instead of just throwing the dough out and wasting it I made it into pizza crust that I put in the freezer to pull out for a quick pizza meal later in the week.
I started with the dough.
1 cup of hot water ( this was my trouble i had my water too hot and it killed my yeast)
1 packet of yeast
a pinch of sugar and salt
2 tablespoons of olive oil, plus some for the bowl
3 to 4 cups of flour
Mix all the ingredients in the order given. Slowly add the flour, kneading the dough for the last couple cups of flour. Pour extra oil in the bottom of the bowl and and turn your dough over in it. Let the dough sit covered for at least 30 minutes.
Cook the dough in a oven preheated to 425°F for 6 to 10 minutes, until the dough is firm and slightly browned. Repeat for the other 2 rounds.
When you are ready to use the crusts, preheat the oven to 425°F. Add your toppings and put the pizza in the oven for 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and it is golden brown.
