And don't worry about all the time and effort of making your own crust; just throw the ingredients in your bread machine, turn it to dough setting, and that's it! You probably already have all these ingredients in your pantry, so why not wow your family this weekend with an easy garlic-herb crust pizza?!
|Now THAT is a pizza!!|
1 cup + 2 tablespoons Warm Water
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Minced Garlic (depending on your taste)
3 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning
2 teaspoons Grated Parmesan Cheese
2-1/2 teaspoons Yeast
Place all ingredients in bread machine in the order listed. Turn to dough setting and start. When dough is done, roll out on a floured surface (for pizza dough it usually works better just stretching and pulling than using a rolling pin) to desired thickness and shape. I did mine on a 15" rectangle cookie sheet and that gave us a pretty thick crust, which is our family's favorite. You could probably divide and make 2 (smaller) thin crust pizzas if you prefer. Lightly grease your pan and sprinkle cornmeal on top then move pizza to pan. Add sauce and toppings as desired, then bake at 400 for 18-24 minutes (less if thin crust). Slice and enjoy!
