Homemade Pizza

Welcome to Monday Night Pizza at our house.  Most of the time I use turkey sausage, turkey pepperoni, low fat mozzarella and veggies to help us feel better about eating pizza.  We think it tastes great!

Homemade Pizza

Pizza Crust:
2 pkg yeast
1½ cups warm water (110°)

Sprinkle yeast over warm water, sprinkle sugar over yeast.  When yeast if foamy, add salt, oil, and flour.  knead.  Let rise in warm place until doubled.  Divide dough in half.  Stretch or roll each piece into a 10-12 inch circle.  Place dough on pizza pan that has been prepared with cooking spray and sprinkled with cornmeal.  Let rise 10-20 minutes.  Preheat oven to 500°.  Prebake each crust for 4-5 minutes (if desired for crisper crust), remove and spread with sauce, cheese, and toppings.  Bake additional 5-7 minutes until golden and bubbly.
