.pizza for your patience.

Oh. Uh. Hi guys. *sheepish look*

So... uh.... yeah. Long time no see. Not really sure what happened this month. I kind of just dropped off the face of the earth I guess. Unfortunately I'll probably do the same when the baby gets here next month.

I do have something way tasty to share with you though! And perhaps it will make up for my lack of posting? Yeah, okay, it's not really that great so it probably won't. It is most delicious though.

I made an awesome, super quick and easy, homemade pizza! And I didn't even burn the bottom this time. Go me! The dough I made for the crust is probably the easiest pizza dough ever. It only requires about 15 minutes of rise time. I love this because it's great for super busy folks. Nobody wants to sit around waiting for dough to rise for an hour! You can make this with all purpose flour or, as I did, with half wheat flour.

Fastest Pizza Dough Ever makes 1 large pizza crust or 2 large thin crusts
1 package of yeast
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon oil
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
Pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Place yeast and warm water in a mixer bowl. Let the yeast dissolve. Stir in the oil, flour and salt. Stir to combine into a ball then knead the dough for 10 minutes. Place the dough back in the bowl and cover with a clean tea towel. Place the bowl on top of the stove over the warm oven. Let rise for 15 minutes.

Spray a baking sheet with a cooking spray, or lightly oil. Take the dough out of the bowl and knead for another few minutes. You can roll it out with a rolling pin or just use your hands to stretch it out on the pan like I did. Prick around the dough with a fork and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and place sauce, cheese and desired toppings on the pizza. Bake for another 12-14 minutes. Last night I used mozzarella cheese, olives, baby bella mushrooms and goat cheese. It was delish!
