Quick Pizza Dough

Pizza is one of those meals that everybody loves.
I've gotten really picky about how I like my pizza 
(no marinara or pepperoni please)
and prefer it homemade with: a yummy crust brushed with olive oil and slices of fresh mozzarella. It's amazing what a difference good ingredients makes!

I really like the Pioneer Woman's pizza crust recipe if I'm planning ahead and can remember to make it in time to let it chill for a couple of days. However, a lot of times I'm throwing meals together on the spot, so this recipe is perfect for when I need a crust in ten minutes. 

What You'll Need:
1 Tbsp. active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees F.)
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil 
2 1/2 cups flour

What To Do:
Dissolve the yeast in the water. Add the rest of the ingredients in and mix. Dump onto a floured surface. Knead into a smooth dough (five minutes or so). Roll out and press down onto a greased pizza pan. Add toppings. Bake at 450 degrees F. for around 12-15 minutes until the crust looks crispy and lightly browned.

Some of my favorite toppings combinations

Olive Oil, Mozzarella, Caramelized Onions, Spinach, Mushrooms, Bacon/Prosciutto
Alfredo Sauce, Mozzarella and White Cheddar, Spinach, Tomato Slices 
Barbecue Sauce, Cheddarjack cheese, Red Onions, Grilled Chicken
