- 1 tablespoon instant yeast
- 1 cup warm water (110 degrees F to 115 degrees F)
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (or 1 1/2 whole wheat and 1 all purpose)
Also works well in bread maker - set to "basic dough" or "white dough".
To freeze: after dough has risen, flatten out onto your pizza pan. I just use my hands to make it into a circle. Freeze on pan. Wrap in plastic wrap/bags the next day.
To use: no need to thaw. Top while frozen with your favourite pizza toppings - we usually do tomato sauce, pepperoni, mushrooms, and mozzarella. Also makes nice bread sticks to go with pasta - brush with Italian salad dressing and top with some Parmesan.
Bake 10-12 min at 450*F. Serve with a salad if you're seeking more vegetables.
Chicken Pesto Pizza: use basil pesto in place of tomato sauce, top with slices of chicken breast, mushrooms, other veggies, mozza.
Teryaki Chicken Pizza: teryaki sauce (thick), chicken, green onions, pineapple, cheese
BBQ Chicken/Beef Pizza: bbq sauce, sliced chicken or beef... you get the idea.
