Pizza Dough

We have started Friday night pizza night at our house, and I dare say it's maybe the best decision we've ever made! Sometimes we go out, sometimes we order in, and sometimes we make our own. No matter where or how we get it, we never miss a Friday pizza night!

When we do stay in, we use this quick, easy dough recipe, and it is always a hit! I have never been one to make breads or doughs, so I was a little intimidated, but this one couldn't be easier! 

1 Tbsp. Yeast
1.5 C warm water 
4 C flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt

If you have a high powdered blender (I use my Blendtec), you can throw it all in there and hit the pulse button a few times until well mixed. You could also do it in a Kitchenaid. If you don't have a blender like this, mix together in a bowl (using a fork) until mixed, and then knead by hand If "kneaded." (Okay. That was bad ;)
Let sit for about 10 minutes, and then roll out onto a floured pizza stone or cookie sheet. I usually add a little more flour if it's sticky (probably about 1/4 C, but I really just add a little at a time until it doesn't stick). 
(We're clearly not too picky about the shape)

Poke with a fork (to avoid bubbles when cooking) and bake on 450* for 10-15 minutes or until edges are golden. 

Remove from oven and top with pizza sauce, cheese, and your favorite toppings. Or, you can do our favorite and use BBQ sauce, cheese, chicken, and pineapple. 
Broil on high until cheese is melted and enjoy! Sorry for no after shot; we gobbled it up too quickly! 

Yum! So glad it's Friday! Happy pizza night! :)

That looks so delicious. I never thought to add pineapple to a BBW pizza. I'd love that!
