Homemade Pizza Crust Recipe

Are you trying to eat healthier in the new year? Well, if you areΒ  like most of us.. and love pizza but hate to give it up… why not make your own!? Pizza is a favorite here, so instead of buying I make it myself to keep it a bit more low calorie. My family has been making this Homemade Pizza Crust Recipe for years, for as long as I can remember and I haven’t even lived at home for over ten years. When I make this pizza crust (depending on how thick you want it) I get two medium sized pizzas out of it. The other night I let my kids each make a tiny personal pan (three of them) & my husband and I had a medium/large to share. What’s great about making your own pizza is that you can make it as healthy as you want, minus the crust. I added mushrooms, green peppers, & onions with 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese. My secret for taste is adding garlic seasoning to the crust before I put the pizza sauce on & then after I add all the toppings I add salt, pepper, more garlic salt & some basil to the entire top! YUM! It’s delicious and a lot less calories, and healthier then your local pizza joint.

Homemade Pizza Crust:

  • 2.5 TSP dry active yeast
  • 1 TBSP brown sugar
  • 1.5 Cups warm water
  • 1 TSP of salt
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 3 Cups Flour

In a large bowl dissolve years, brown sugar and water and let sit for ten minutes. Sift salt and flour into mixture and knead dough onto a clean well floured surface. A lot of times I will just put mine into the Kitchen Aid mixer and let it go, but not to long to get it overly sticky.Β  Either way knead until no longer sticky (You may have to add more flour). In an oiled bowl let rise for one hour. Punch and form a tight ball, let relax one minute and roll out crust. Let sit for another 20 minutes before topping. Cook at 425 for 20 minutes. This is how I always originally made it, but if you are short on time, you absolutely do not need to let it sit, it will still taste great.
