Homemade Pizza Recipe

Ingredients: 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°), 1/4 cup canola oil, 1 teaspoon salt, 3-1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour, 1 can (15 ounces)

tomato sauce, 3 teaspoons dried oregano, 1 teaspoon dried basil, 2 cups toppings of your choice (like sliced pepperoni, cooked crumbled sausage, chopped onion, sliced mushrooms,

chopped green pepper or sliced olives) optional, 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese. Mix the sugar and yeast in a big basin with water, and then leave it for five minutes. Combine salt

with oil. Add one cup of flour at a time and stir until a soft dough forms. Place onto a surface dusted with flour and knead for two to three minutes, or until smooth and elastic. Transfer to a bowl

that has been oiled, rotating once to coat the top. Place a cover on and allow the dough to rise in a warm area until it doubles, which should take around 45 minutes. Dough is pounded down

and then divided in half. Place each halves into a 12-inch pizza pan that has been oiled. Spread the tomato sauce, oregano, and basil mixture

over each crust. Add your preferred toppings if desired. Top with cheese. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes at 400°, or until the crust is gently browned.
