Time to make the Pizza...

Thanks to my Mom I have a wonderful, quick and oh so easy pizza dough recipe that I make several times a week. My son loves PIZZA!

In a bowl I mix 1 cup of warm water with 2 1/4 tsp of active dry yeast and a pinch of sugar. Then I let it sit for a while so it can begin to get foamy.

Then in the bowl of my food processor I mix 2 1/2 cups of flour (any kind I happen to have- some days its white and other days its whole wheat or a mixture of the two)
1 tsp of salt and a splash of olive oil.

When the yearst has proofed and is foamy I add it to the food processor through the feed tube while it is running. Once the dough has formed a ball I remove it and knead it just a bit and put it into a greased bowl to double in size.
Once ready its time to stretch it onto the pizza pan.

I let my dough rest for a bit so that it doesn't spring back.

Then I spread my tomato sauce, sprinkle with oregano and cover with shredded mozzarella. I drizzle olive oil on the pie and put it into a preheated oven (450 degrees) until it is ready to eat!

This is fast- fun and oh so yummy!
