My family loves meaty pizza, lots of pepperoni and sausage. This time I went with chicken, but to make it more appealing to my guys, I went with spicy barbeque sauce, added some sharp cheddar cheese, bacon, and bleu cheese. This is a favorite!
2 pkg yeast
1½ cups warm water (110°)
4 tsp sugar
4 Tbl olive oil
1½ tsp salt
4 cups flour
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, remove and spread with sauce, cheese, and toppings. Bake additional 5-7 minutes until golden and bubbly. Makes 2 pizzas.
