DIY not for you? I’ve finally found a frozen pizza that I adore with all-natural ingredients that I can pronounce (!) and don’t mind serving my kids. Quick and easy from the freezer without the day long prep? Yes, please! Check out my review of #HomeRunInn pizza here:
We love this pizza crust recipe, and you can mix it up by trading out up to half of the flour for whole wheat flour for a healthier crust. We like to use one sheet pan for this pizza, but I also parbake and freeze it on 2 pizza pans for taking to friends and family. You could also use this dough for breadsticks. My husband likes to melt 1 tablespoon of butter to brush on the edges of the crust before we top it, and he also sprinkles on garlic or garlic an herb spices on the edge of the crust.
- 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast or 1 package yeast
- 1 1/3 cups warm water
- 3 1/2 - 4 cups flour
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- In a mixer bowl, pour warm water and yeast. Let stand for 5 minutes. Do not stir.
- Add flour, oil, salt and sugar to the mixer bowl.
- Using a paddle attachment, stir to combine the ingredients.
- Switch out the paddle attachment for a dough hook and knead the dough for 10 minutes.
- In a large bowl, combine warm water and yeast. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.
- Add flour, oil, salt and sugar to the bowl.
- Stir to combine the ingredients.
- Knead by hand for 10 minutes on a lightly floured surface. You may need to add additional flour to keep it from sticking too much.
- Cover the bottom and sides of a large bowl with oil.
- Put the dough ball in the oiled bowl and flip over so oil is on both sides of the ball.
- Allow to raise for 90 minutes in a warm spot.
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
- Sprinkle cornmeal on the pan you'll be making the pizza in - either one half sheet pan (cookie sheet) or 2 pizza pans.
- Divide dough in 2 if you are using 2 pizza pans. Put pizza dough on pan and spread out with your hands. It takes a while and it uses a lot of forearm dexterity!
- Add your desired toppings.
- Bake at 450 degrees F for 15-20 minutes for a half sheet pan (cookie sheet) or 10-15 minutes for 2 pizza pans.
