Family Pizza Night With An Easy Garlic Crust! #FoodieFriday #Recipe

Does your family have a pizza night every week or two? We enjoy pizza night usually once a week, sometimes every other week. It's usually on Friday evenings, and we play games or watch a family movie together afterwards. Sometimes, depending on our schedule that day, we order from a local pizzeria, but our favorite is when we can make it at home, and each person can customize a few slices to their personal taste! This past weekend I was really in the mood for a garlicky-herb crust, so I went online and tried finding a really good recipe. I eventually found one that sounded like what I was looking for, and the end result was perfection! As in, the best pizza crust you've ever tasted!  (To be honest, I actually ate 3 slices, whereas I normally only eat 2). 
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!
