Pizza night! It must be a Friday

Fridays equal pizza in a lot of households, mine included. Being from New York I love a good pizza and could eat it every night. Buy my wallet did not like it when we ate pizza at least once a week so I had to fix the situation.

After many failed store bought crusts and silly recipes from the interwebs I came up with a fantastic thin crust recipe.
I guarantee this will turn out right every time if you follow the directions, no guess work involved


For super delicious crust you need 
1/4oz packet active dry yeast
1/4 tsp sugar
3/4c water
1 3/4 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp onion salt/powder
1 tsp garlic salt/powder
*or season to your taste 

Preheat oven with pizza stone to 500
Microwave water for 2 minutes 
Dissolve sugar and yeast in water and let rest for 7 minutes or until it look like this 

In a mixer with a dough hook, or bowl combine flour and seasonings

Combine yeast with flour mixture until it sets in a semi formed lump/ball

Roll dough out on a well floured surface until as thin/thick as you like

Then cut into squares/shapes if you so desire. We all like out pizza a little differently so we cut it

Bake the crust for 4 minutes, quickly take it out and add toppings 
* if desired heat up butter with garlic and spread on the crust for crunchy amazingness 

Throw it back in the oven for 6-8 minutes and BAM perfect pizza. Promise 

In case you missed it the first time
For dessert we had graham crackers topped with peanut butter and mini chocolate chips!  I was in love 

And FYI when working with flour you should really wear an apron. trust me 
Why yes, yes I am a Spartan AROO
