Herbed Pizza Crust

  • 1 cup warm water (120*F)
  • 1 pkg or 1 T yeast
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 t salt
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 1/2 - 3 cups flour
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 t dried thyme
  • 1 t pizza seasoning or other pizza-y herbs
  1. Dissolve yeast in a bowl (or use Kitchen Aid) with warm water. Add sugar, salt, oil, garlic, thyme, and pizza spice; mix well.
  2. Turn mixer on low and gradually add flour, using dough hook attachment if you have it.
  3. Once dough is all mixed, lift it out of the bowl and add a teaspoon of oil to grease the bowl. Put the dough back in and turn it to grease the top.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit until doubled.
  5. Makes 2 medium sized pizzas.
    This dough smells wonderful and tastes even better! I let my kids each have a little bit of dough to construct their own pizzas. (I make a gluten-free, dairy-free dough for Joel but I won't post that recipe unless anyone is truly interested!)
