Italian Pizza Crust

Italian Pizza Crust
Wheat Italian Pizza Crust

By: Shannon Beeghley, LPN, NS, CHHC

(This is my favorite crust recipe!)

2 1/4 tsp yeast (or one package)

3/4 cup warm water

1 tsp sugar

Mix together and set aside. In another bowl, place the following ingredients:

1 cup white flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

2 TBSP olive oil

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp garlic salt

Stir together and then pour in the yeast mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon til mixed together.  Knead it on a floured surface a couple times. Let raise till double. Flatten or roll out onto a pizza pan (or on a cookie sheet) and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and add any pizza sauce and toppings you desire. Finish baking 10-15 minutes more. Enjoy! 🙂

Yield: One 12.5 inch by 9 inch rectangle pan (I don’t have a circle pizza pan) 🙂

Note: You can just use all white flour if desired. Or use your favorite kind of flour, if gluten intolerant. The dough can be made & baked, then stuck into the freezer in a well sealed bag for a quick just-add-toppings pizza later!

(The above pizza has sauce, chicken, onions, orange bell pepper, olives, fresh parsley, Monterrey jack & cheddar cheese.)
