I found a recipe on Pinterest that I modified a bit and it turned out amazing! We will not be getting much take out pizza in this house any longer!
You will need:
1 1/3 cup warm water (around 105 F)
1⁄3 cup non-fat powdered milk
1/2 teaspoon Salt
4 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 package dry yeast
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (for dough)
3 ounces vegetable oil (1 ounces per pan)
Tools of the Trade:
Mixing Bowls or Mixer with dough hook
Measuring Spoons and Cups
3 cake pans or pie plates
Combine water, yeast and sugar and let sit for a couple of minutes to proof the yeast and make sure that it is going to cause your dough to rise. In a separate bowl, combine flour, milk, and salt. Once the yeast and sugar water mixture has proofed, add in 2 Tbsp of oil and mix well with the other dry ingredients. I use my mixer with the dough hook when I make pizza and just let the dough hook do it’s magic for about 7 minutes. If you don’t have a mixer with a dough hook, then knead the dough for about 10 minutes on a well floured surface until no longer sticky. Kneading is very important to the process and must be done to develop the gluten and helps with the consistency of the finished product.
Once your dough is made, put an ounce of oil into each of three different cake pans or pie plates (I prefer cake pans)and then separate the dough into three equal balls. Roll out the balls so that they will fit in the pans with an edge for the crust (about an inch larger than your pan) and then put a plate on top of the pan and place all three pans in a warm dry place for about 1 – 1.5 hours to rise.
Once they have risen, add sauce, cheese and your desired toppings and place in an oven preheated to 475° F. Cook for approximately 11 – 13 minutes, or until cheese is melted and crust is brown. Enjoy!
