Thin Crust Pizza

A YUMMY TREAT THAT THE HUBBY MAKES – Thin Crust (home made) Pizza  {drooling as I write}

This is a simple and yet superb meal to make at home.

#1. THE STUFF (& PRE HEAT THE OVEN TO 425 degrees, please)

Flour (wheat or white… we’ve made both. Sean prefers white flour for the thin crust style) about 2 cups

A bit of salt

Olive Oil

Yeast (1 pkt)

Water (3/4 – 1c. warm water)

toppings of choice

#2 . MAKE YOUR DOUGH GROW

First, soak the yeast for about 5 minutes (soak it in the 3/4 cup of warm water).

Second, add the flour and salt to the yeast and mix/kneed until well blended. Cover for about 15 minutes and let the dough rise.

#3. ROLL YOUR DOUGH (roll it to fit your pan)

We roll it right on our kitchen island. We are totally classy and wrap the island with some super-duper saran wrap, add a few dashes of flour and our trusty rolling pin… and away we he goes (there is no “we” here, who am I kidding, Sean does ALL the cooking).

#4. DECORATE YOUR DOUGH

Splash on some olive oil… you don’t need a lot but don’t be shy either

Add your Mozzarella cheese. A few handfuls should suffice. No need to over do it.

#5. IT’S ALL ON TOP

We LOVE salami on our pizza, our boys can’t get enough of it. We also add Ricotta cheese (dabs of it here and there), garlic, basil and bell peppers (and depending on our moods, we give and take in the toppings department).

#6. LETS GET THIS BABY COOKED

Over should be preheated to 425 degrees.

Slap that bad boy in the oven. Wait about 10-12 minutes, check that the cheese is melted and if so, it’s ready!

#7. EAT & ENJOY!!
