Pizza Night

I love me some pizza.  Unfortunately I really don't like ordering pizza.  I never know how they make the dough, what is in the sauce, etc. etc.  And to be totally honest the pizza available around here really is not that good 8( ..it's sad.
 So....we decided to make our own!
First the dough ..we have had some big flops while trying to make pizza dough. So we picked a super simple recipe from HERE.

Pizza Dough
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 package instant yeast
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup hot water (we used hot tap water)
1 tbsp EVOO (the recipe calls for vegetable oil)
1 tbsp organic sugar

I mixed all the dry ingredients: flour, yeast, salt, sugar.  Then I made little well in the center and added in the water and EVOO.  I stirred for three minutes until a dough formed.  Then we let the dough rise (make sure you add EVOO to the bottom of the bowl or the dough will stick)!  We let in rise for a little over an hour until it doubled in size. 

step 1: (preheat oven to 425) oil pan press dough out to form to pan and pinch up corners to form the crust
step 2: spread on sauce with the back of wooden spoon
step 3: place cheese on all the way to the edges!! Hubby worked in an Italian restaurant when he was younger and he says this is a MUST.
step 4: place mushrooms on.  Remember the mushrooms will shrink so put more on than you think.

After about 20 minutes once the bottom of crust is browned and crispy it's time to eat!!

YUM!! Way better than take out!

Do you make homemade pizza? What is your pizza dough recipe? I'd love to try it!
