Ever since I was little, Mom and I would make the dough from a prepackaged envelope. If it's in a convenience package it makes you think that it has to be too long and cumbersome to make. Well, I tried making it from scratch several months back and amazingly, it takes very little more time to make it homemade. Won't be doing that anymore!
Just a simple Betty Crocker Recipe:
1 package (2 1/4 tsp) dry yeast
1 cup warm water (105-115 degrees, check with candy thermometer or just wing it)
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 T oil
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
Dissolve yeast in warm water in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients, beat with mixing spoon 20 strokes. Let it reast 5 minutes before shaping.
Smear on some canned spaghetti sauce, sprinkle with garlic powder, minced onions, oregano, whatever else suits your fancy, topped with what you have around the house and cover with shredded cheese.
425 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
