  Lukewarm water 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Yeast 1 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Flour 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs)
  Salt 2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon

First we are going to make the dough for the pizza, we use the same recipe as our bread dough, Video
To start microwave 1½ cup of water for 30 seconds to get the right temperature and then pour the
water into a bowl and add 1tsp of yeast and 1tsp of sugar. Let this rest for 10 mins to allow the yeast to
After the timer goes off add 2 ½ cups of flour and 2 tsp of salt, knead the dough until it starts to stick to
itself and not the bowl. Then place it in an oiled container for 2 hours to rest.
After two hours the dough is ready to cut in half and shaped into pizza crust. We refrigerator one half of
the dough so we can have pizza later in the week. Shape the dough by working it with your hands, press
it outward to slowly shape a circle. If you are not comfortable tossing the dough just use a rolling pin.
Be careful not to overwork the dough or it will tear. Set that aside.
Now we are ready to make the pizza sauce. Use 1 standard can of diced tomatoes and drain off the
excess liquid. Pour into a blender and add 1tsp salt, 1tsp ground pepper, 3 garlic cloves, 1tsp lime juice,
and 1tsp of our everything spice. Once the mixture is fully blended you are done!
Now slice or grate your preferred cheese, we like mozzarella on our pizza. Spray a pizza pan or a cookie sheet and place the formed dough on the pan. Smooth the dough out and
then add your pizza sauce. Now place the cheese slices on top and any other toppings you may like.
Before the pizza goes in the oven put some olive oil on the crust to help it brown better. Cook the pizza
for 15 minutes in a 480 degree oven.
