Notes

Pizza crust and be store bought or homemade using my sheet pan pizza recipe and modifying it to make it smaller. Here is the pizza dough recipe:
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 3/4 cups -2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
In a large bowl combine warm water and yeast, allow to rest for 5 minutes until the yeast starts to bubble. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve.
Add in the salt, olive oil and 1 3/4 cups ap flour. Mix well with a wooden spoon or dough attachment on a stand mixer - may need a little more flour if your dough is sticky.
Knead dough with hands for a few minutes. Put in a bowl, cover bowl with plastic wrap and allow to rest until doubled in size (about an hour to two hours).
Place dough on a lightly floured surface and roll out to pan size.
Par bake for 6 minutes at 400 before adding toppings.
