Pizza Pizza

We love Pizza Night around here! Last week, PapaJohn’s cooked for me 😀 This week, I’m back to my old self and was ready for some homemade stuff. I doubled my dough recipe which made 2 large pizzas and a small pan of breadsticks.

Pizza Dough

2 pkgs yeast
2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 c very warm water
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp italian seasoning or pizza seasoning (optional)
1/2 c whole wheat flour
2 – 2 1/2 c all-purpose flour (or leave out ww flour and just use 3 c of all purpose flour)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Dump the wheat flour plus 1/2 c of regular flour into mixer. Add yeast, sugar, and warm water. Mix well for about 3 minutes, until yeast is completely dissolved and bubbles start to form. Add olive oil, garlic salt, and seasoning (if desired). Mix well. Add enough rest of flour to form a stiff dough. Knead in mixer for about 5 minutes or until dough looks smooth. Let rest for about 10-15 minutes while you prepare toppings. After letting dough rest, divide into 2 parts and stretch out on 2 greased pizza pans or don’t divide and put on 1 large half sheet baking pan. Top with pizza sauce and your favorite toppings. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is thoroughly melted.


Our toppings of choice tonight (nearly every week, actually): half cheese/half pepperoni

and thin crust Cheeseburger (for me and Mike)

We had a ton leftover….good thing the kids want sack lunches for school tomorrow!
