Baking is always a fun winter activity.
We love pizza and what is better then homemade crust, not much. We usually double our batches and freeze the extra pizza bases. On this night we tripled it, yep 6 pizza crusts. To freeze, simply make the pizza as usual, except bake it for just a few minutes, only long enough to make it set.
We like to use this recipe.
2/3 c. Water
1 7/8 c. Flour
2 Tbs. Olive Oil
2 tea Dry Active Yeast
1 tea Salt
Place yeast in warm water 90 F. Add flour, salt & olive oil in the bowl of an electric mixer. Using the dough hook mixed in water & yeast on low 2 minutes. Then mix on medium speed for 5 minutes. Proof the dough for 1 hour or until it doubles.
Preheat oven to 375 F. Turn dough out onto slightly floured surface divide in half. Roll each half out to 12 inch rounds.
Top with your favorite toppings and bake 15 minutes or until golden brown. Tip if you like your pie saucy bake the crust a few minutes before you top it. this ensures a crisp crust.
