Pizza Recipe

I LOVE LOVE this recipe for pizza!! It comes out so delicious and soft! And added treat is that my youngest is teething right now so he loves to munch on the crust of the pizza!!
– 4 cups of flour
– 2 cups of warm water
– 1 tbsp of yeast
– 1/2 tbsp of sugar
– 1.5 tbsp of olive oil
– 1 tsp of salt
– can of tomato pizza sauce
– desired pizza toppings (cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers, etc..)
1. In a large mixing bowl, add 1 cup of warm water and 1 tbsp of yeast and a 1/2 tbsp of sugar. Let the mixture stand for five minutes and then stir.
2. Add to the bowl: 2 cups of flour, 1 tsp of salt and 1.5 tbsp of olive oil. Stir the mixture together until it becomes wet and sticky.
3. Add in 1 cup of flour and 0.5 cup of warm water. Knead together until soft and smooth on a floured surface or in the bowl. Add in up to one more cup of flour as needed to make the dough smooth.
4. Let the dough sit for ten minutes. At this point you can either divide the dough up into two and make two small pizzas or make one large rectangle one.
5. Take each roll and knead again. Make sure the pan that you chose to use is lightly oiled. Roll out the dough to ensure that it will fit your pan.
6. Preheat oven to 425F.
7. Place your dough on your pan and allow it to sit for five minutes. Spread your tomato sauce over the dough.
8. Add any toppings that you desire – we like cheese, bacon and peppers.
9. Bake in oven for 15 to 20 minutes (check the bottom and edges to ensure it is golden brown) and enjoy!

– 1/2 cup of thinly sliced onions
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Pour can of Campbell’s cream of mushroom soup into a large and deep casserole dish. Add in 1/2 can of milk and stir to mix evenly.

My kids love this on top of rice.The chicken turns out so soft and tender after cooking in the mushroom soup. It is one of those super easy and time saving recipes that have become one of our family favourites!

You can find his short stories at The Little Adventurer’s Corner!
