Better Simple Pizza Dough (studying has turned me into a crazy person)

If you've been noticing my statuses (stati?) on facebook, blog posts, twitter (wow we are all so connected), or really just listening to me at all for the past few weeks you will have noticed that the only thing that's going on is EXAMS EXAMS EXAMS. And so, I have been faithfully studying. Now- a thought on food during exam time. Its usually fast. Its not always healthy. It tends to be boring (ie- cheese and crackers repeatedly. a million cups of tea. a lot of coffee.) Thus, the following recipe is about pizza, not salad, and is the second recipe that I present to you about pizza in two weeks.

This recipe, in my opinion, is better than the last recipe that I posted for pizza dough. It's easy and tasty- can be rolled out thin for those thin crust lovers and thick for those who prefer it. Lastly, it has my stamp of approval- I've had pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And then lunch again.

note: i was reading through my fridge manual- a samsung- this week and discovered that samsung really needs to get some new technical writers:

"In case the door is slightly open by mischiefs of children or mistakes of housewives, the door is automatically closed and prevents any loss of cool air, and a melody for warning housewives sounds." HAHAHAHA

Pizza Dough-

1 package dry regular yeast
1/4 c warm water
1 tsp sugar

Dissolve sugar in warm water and add yeast. Let sit for about ten minutes, then add to---

2 3/4 c flour
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 c lukewarm water
1 T oil

mix together and knead until a smooth dough is formed.
roll out into 2 pizzas, top with sauce and cheese and bake at 425 for around twenty minutes (or until the cheese looks melted and bubbly).


  1. Could you theoretically make a pie that is not only part crispy thin, but has a tantalizing thick and doughy crust as well? That would probably be the ultimate in pizza dining!

  2. ahem - no food porn?

    we want pictures!

  3. K Yoni, I put up a pic, just for you :)

  4. Made this tonight, was delish!
