Recipe: Easy Pizza dough

by Emily on March 7, 2014

Almost exactly a year ago I had the brilliant idea of adding a recipe section to this blog. I added a recipe for Chicken Pot Pie. And then… nothing. Oops. Dropped the ball there. So now that I get to sleep through the night occasionally, I’m going to try to post more recipes– all will be easy, and in my opinion, yummy!

Here’s a recipe for pizza dough! I never realized how easy it is, with how few ingredients!

1 3/4 – 2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1 package fast-rising dry yeast
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup very war water (125-130 degrees)
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil


Combine 1 cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Stir in water and oil. Add enough remaining flour to form soft dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface; knead 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
Shape or roll dough into 12-inch circle. Sprinkle cornmeal on lightly greased 12-inch pizza pan or baking sheet. Place dough on pan, pressing gently to fit.

Add toppings and bake!

For some reason it won’t let me comment on your ‘Medical Professional…’ Blog post. So I’ll just post here.
Don’t be discouraged. It’s a shame that just because you decided to adopt, now everything you do as a parent has to be under a microscope. :(
Harper (28 months old) only naps in a car or a high chair and probably doesn’t even really know what a triangle is, let alone could stack blocks in that shape.
And if Hannah had put up too much of a fight to go with the nurse, they would have complained that she’s too attached. Don’t second guess yourself, or let the negativity outweigh the great job you are doing!
Happy positive energy coming your way!! ;)
