Fast Pizza Dough

Our family loves to eat Pizza!  Growing up it was the Friday night tradition at least when we were around Aunt Betty and Uncle Dwayne. We eat it quite often at our house but for a while I had a recipe that would take hours to fix. Sometimes Keith would come home from work and call saying "Hey can we have pizza tonight?" My answer normally would be no because it take a few hours to have the dough rise. Well my friend Shell gave me a recipe that takes 10 minutes! Yes 10 minutes! And it makes a delicious, can be crispy, crust. So now when Keith comes home and asks can we have pizza for dinner, I can say. Yes we can!

Shell's Fast Pizza Dough.

1/2 TBSP
1 cup Warm water
2 TBSP oil
1 tsp Sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/2-2 3/4 cup flour (I use bread flour)

Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Add the oil, sugar, and salt. Add flour. Mix well. I use my Kitchen Aid Mixer. Place on a floured surface for 10 minutes covered. Form on greased pizza pan. Put toppings on. Bake at 425 degrees for about 25 minutes.

* I like to add Oregano or a little garlic to the dough to give a little flavor.

For our favorite toppings we like to spread roasted garlic and olive oil on the crust then spread a little pesto on top of that. Put sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese, Grilled chicken, spinach, bacon, mushrooms, onions and mozzarella cheese. Boy is it tasty.
