If you’ve never made homemade pizza before, don’t let this super easy and delicious recipe pass you by. It’s seriously so easy, my kids can make this…and they have! I got the original recipe from a cooking book (circa 1942) my grandmother gave me when I got married. The recipe is for bread, but I use it for everything from a loaf of bread to cinnamon rolls. It’s a sticky dough you don’t need to knead. Just use a wooden spoon to mix the following ingredients and let it rise:
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon yeast
up to 3 tablespoons of sugar (I use brown sugar)
3 cups of lukewarm water (warm water speeds the rising process)
6 cups of flour
After the dough has risen (about 2-3 hours), grab, pinch and plop small rounds of dough onto a tray lined with parchment paper. Top with pizza or marinara sauce and cheese and toppings of your choice. Bake for 12 minutes in a 430 degree F preheated oven. Rotate the trays for even baking if not baking in a convection oven. Remove and let cool (if possible) before enjoying these amazingly simple treats!
