The 30 Minute Pizza

I promised my husband last night that he could have pizza for supper but of course plans change and we ended up having a bunch to do when he got home and finally it was 5:30pm and I knew we had to leave at 6:30pm. I opened the fridge and looked at the things I could warm up for supper but then I remembered that I had promised him that pizza...and that's his favorite. So the 30 minute pizza was born and I have a feeling it might become a standby around here. All I know is that when the hubby came in from outside working last night and saw the pizza, he was happy.

What you need:

  • 3/4 c. warm water
  • 1 T yeast
  • 1 t sugar
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • mayo
  • mozzarella cheese
In a bowl, mix together the warm water, yeast, and sugar. Let it sit while you are mixing together the flour, olive oil, and salt. Add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture. Knead for about 2 minutes until the dough gets smoother. Roll out and place on a pizza pan in a warm place. While you are getting out the toppings, cover the dough and let it rise just a bit. Preheat the oven to 375F. When the dough has risen for about 5 minutes it should look a little puffy, stick it in the oven for about 5-6 minutes. Then take it out and spread the mayo on the top(I know it sounds a little different but trust me on this one! It's like a yummy white sauce with a little kick.) Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top of that. You could also add, cooked chicken, tomatoes, or whatever other toppings you like. Stick it back in the oven and back until the crust and the cheese is browned on the top. Enjoy!

Question: A TABLESPOON of yeast? Isn’t that quite a lot for just 2 cups flour? Thought I’d double check with ya before I waste the flour, thanks!
