Pizza, Pizza, Pizza

We love making Pizza at our house.  The kids love making their own.  This is how I got them to eat mushrooms :)  So we are going to share our favorite pizza dough recipe with you.
Pizza Dough Recipe
2 1/2 cups flour, whole wheat or white
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 Tablespoon dry yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup hot water (120 degree to 130 degrees)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Mix 2 cups flour, sugar, dry yeast, and salt.  Add water and oil; mix well.  Add remaining flour as needed to make soft dough.  Knead 5 minutes; let rest 5 minutes.  Roll or pat dough to fit a lightly greased pan.
Bake at 475 degrees.  10-12 minutes for one large pizza
5-7 minutes for medium pizzas.
I love letting the kids cut their own olives and mushrooms.  We use the Pamper Chief egg cutter.  They love it.  I love that I don’t have to worry about them cutting their fingers off.
