Bobby has always been a pizza fanatic, pepperoni being his #1 choice. I remember when he was a little guy, about 3 or 4, Bob brought home pizza for dinner. When we opened the box we discovered it was the wrong order, not pepperoni, Bobby burst into tears. We laugh about that even to this day!
When Bobby was in high school I started making homemade pizza to feed all his friends when they came over to hang out. There was no way I could afford to order pizza for that hungry group. I discovered a good recipe for pizza crust, here it is. . .
1 package regular or quick active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Dissolve yeast in warm water in mixing bowl.
Stir in flour, oil and salt.
Mix on medium speed with dough hook until a ball is formed.
Cover and let rest 20 minutes.
I make another dough crust for the 2nd pizza. I tried to double the recipe once, it just didn't work.
Move oven rack to lowest position.Heat oven to 425 degrees.Spray pizza pan with Pam.
Flour area where dough will be rolled out.
Turn dough over a few times in flour before rolling with a floured rolling pin.
Put dough on large pizza pan, trim excess dough, then fold over to form an edge. Prick dough thoroughly with a fork. Add sauce, cheese , & toppings. Bake about 10 to 15 minutes or until crust just begins to brown.
I use spaghetti sauce with a little oregano added, instead of pizza sauce. Top with mozzarella cheese, followed by other toppings of your choice. I recently discovered 'Hormel Turkey Pepperoni', it's not as greasy as regular pepperoni, we like it better.
