Homemade Pizza

Who loves pizza?!?!  Well now you can love it even more because I am going to give you a fool proof dough recipe that you probably have all the ingredients for already.  Horray!  Cheap, homemade pizza!

The dough:

– 2.5 teaspoons active dry yeast
– 1 teaspoon white sugar
– 1 cup warm water
– 2.5 cups all purpose flour
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– 1 teaspoon salt
* minced garlic
* dried rosemary

In a small bowl add 1 cup warm water, the salt, and the yeast.  Stir that up and let it hang out for 10-15 minutes.
In the meantime, in another bowl, combine the flour, olive oil, salt and any additions of your choice (I used minced garlic and dried rosemary).
Mix everything in both bowls together until you’ve got a nice little ball. Cover with saran wrap and cover. Let it rise for 5 minutes or however long you want.
Roll that baby out and pile it with whatever toppings you like.  I used tomato sauce, mortadella, spicy salami, mozzarella, parmesan and then added fresh tomatoes and arugula too.  I love arugula on pretty much anything.  Spinach is soooo last season.
Bake at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) for 15 – 20 minutes.
Voila!
