One of my easiest and most go-to recipes for a busy weeknight is homemade pizza’s.  In my house we like to call them “makeyourown” pizza’s.  I lay out all of the ingredients and let everyone load them up just the way they like it.  But first, you have to start with a great pizza dough recipe.  Yes, there are tons of recipes out there that take several hours of rising and punching, but on a weeknight, nobody’s got time for that.  So enter my go-to recipe for the easiest pizza dough EVER!

 Making the dough is as easy as 1, 2, 3.  Start by adding 2 cups of all purpose flour to you food processor.  Add a teaspoon of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt and a packet of active dry yeast.  Give it a quick whiz to incorporate it and then add in 3/4 cup warm water with 2 teaspoons olive oil.  Run the food processor until the dough has come together.  Then let it run for another 60 seconds to “knead” it.

After it’s rested, then you can quarter the dough and make 4 personal pizzas or roll it out onto a round pizza pan and make one family sized pizza.  This recipe also works great to make grilled pizzas, cheesy dinner rolls, cinnamon rolls and so many other yeasty delicious things.
