And I’ve always made my own pizza dough, but this week, I discovered the best pizza crust ever. Yes, you read that right, ever, via the Prairie Homesteader. I adjusted the herbs to what I had on hand, but you can see her version of the dough by clicking on the link. She’s got other fun stuff, too.
In fact, it’s so good, I’m going to try making it into homemade bread sticks.
So here’s the recipe for both her pizza crust and my homemade white sauce chicken pizza.
1 cup warm water
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons sugar
1 Tablespoon yeast
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 3/4 cup flour
Combine yeast and water in bowl until yeast is dissolved. Mix oil, sugar, and seasonings in small bowl. Add to yeast and water, mix, then add in flour. Knead for 8 minutes on lightly floured surface and allow to rise for 1 hour. I use the top of the fridge, it’s warm and draft free.
1 package softened cream cheese (if you can find a brand with probiotics, score!)
For crust combine yeast and water in bowl until yeast is dissolved. Mix oil, sugar, and seasonings in small bowl. Add to yeast and water, mix, then add in flour. Knead for 8 minutes on lightly floured surface and allow to rise for 1 hour. I use the top of the fridge, it’s warm and draft free.
Roll out on pizza stone. Smear sauce over top of crust. Layer toppings. We’ve also used sliced mozzarella with great success instead of grating as well.
