Homemade Pizza/Calzone recipe my 10 y/o son will eat
Mix in a small bowl and let sit/proof/bubble for 5 minutes or so:
¼ C hot water
1 TBSP yeast
1 TBSP sugar
Then put these things in your mixer:
3½ C Flour
2 TBSP Oregano (crush/roll between hands before you put it in)
1 tsp garlic salt
2 TBSP garlic
¼ C olive oil
¼ C Parmesan cheese
Next add the yeast mixture and another ¾ C. warm water. Then I just let it mix for 5-10 minutes. If it's sticky, I add more flour in until it isn't.
This recipe will make 2 pizza crusts if you use regular size cookie sheets. We use a jelly roll pan + a round pizza stone. Son gets the stone pizza. We roll them out pretty thin, because while I LOVE deep dish, it doesn't work well with my post gastric bypass stomach. Hubs is on a diet, and son prefers thinner crust on homemade.
So we spread the crusts out on their respective pans, and put in 425° oven for 7-10 mins. Then we pull them out; put sauce, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, toppings on top. Put back in the oven for 11-13 minutes. :)
