Chances are, if your family is a fan of pizza, it's going to be hard to find a recipe to please all age groups. Kids love that flaky bottom and chewy crust, while most adults prefer a gourmet-tasting crust without the added calories and sugar of most recipes. Hopefully for many, this homemade recipe will be the answer to all pizza-related quandaries. It has a fresh, lively taste and works great with any topping you can dream up. Happy creating!
-For a little variety, try using a different cheese or sauce than you normally use. Sauces made with sun-ripened or golden tomatoes have a unique, tangy flavor and bleu, muenster, and feta cheeses all add a delightfully different texture and taste to classic pizza.
-For a crust kids will go crazy for, try rolling cheese or meat into the crust. Simply roll the pizza round about 2 inches larger than the pan. Place cheese or meat in a ring around the edge of the dough and fold over the edges towards the middle.
-This recipe yields one large pizza crust. If more than one is required, double all ingredients but decrease oil by 1 tbl (E.g two crusts would have three tablespoons instead of four.)
Pizza is a cheap and easy meal, which is, no doubt, why delivery joints make money hand over fist selling them to you. But pizza is something you can make at home, without having to purchase and store those pre-made crusts.
If you're like me you love pizza but not the calories. You want a healthier crust and a guilt-free, nutritious pizza that still tastes delicious.
