Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe

This is my very favorite pizza dough recipe. Mostly because I don't have to plan ahead, you do not let the dough rise for this recipe!

A very long time ago when I was little my Mom and some ladies at church put together a cookbook. I remember them working on it in our living room, this was back before computers and word processors, they typed the entire thing on typewriters and bound it themselves. 
These are my very favorite kind of recipe books!
This recipe is from that cookbook. 

It is very easy. 

1 1/2 c. warm water
2 tsp. yeast
1 tsp salt
1 T oil
3 c. flour

Let the yeast dissolve in the water.
Mix the other ingredients together. I add a little honey and garlic salt.
When it pulls away form the bowl take it out and kneed by hand.

You don't have to kneed very long, just until smooth.

If you doubled the recipe, divide it in half. 
Flour your surface and roll out.
Place on pan, and finish patting out.

Poke holes with a fork so it doesn't rise.

Bake at 500 degrees for about 5-7 min. until slightly brown.

Take it out and then put your toppings on. I recruit children at this point!

This is for the "adult" pizza.

Put back in the oven at 425 for another 15min or until golden brown.

On this one we did hamburger, 2 kinds of olives, red onion, green pepper and 3 kinds of cheese. It was awesome!
The kids had pepperoni and cheese.

Homemade Pizza Dough

1 1/2 c. warm water
2 tsp. yeast
1 tsp salt
1 T oil
3 c. flour

For one pizza. Double for two. Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add salt, oil 2 c. of flour and beat until well blended and smooth. Add remaining flour to make a stiff dough. Knead until smooth and satiny. Do not allow to rise. Roll out very thin for crispy crust and pat out thicker for chewier crust.
Place in 500 degree oven, on bottom rack and bake about 5min. or until there are brown spots on the underside of the crust. Top will bubble and start to brown. Remove from oven and top with sauce and toppings. Lower oven to 425 and bake for another 15min.
