Pizza Fun

Friday night is pizza night at our house. We all have a lot of fun making it together. I thought I'd share the recipe. This is pretty much the same recipe we used growing up (and some are still using and growing up, right Alan?)

Wright Family Classic Pizza
2 1/2 cups flour
1 t. salt
1 t. sugar
1 T. or one package instant dry yeast
2 T. vegetable oil
1 cup warm water

Mix all ingredients well and knead, adding more flour if necessary to make a soft dough. Place in greased bowl, cover and let rise till doubled in size. Punch down dough and spread onto oiled pizza stone or pan. Makes 1 large pizza.

1/2 cup tomato sauce (or 2 T. tomato
paste and enough water to make 1/2 cup)
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. dried oregano (or 1T. fresh)
1/2 t. dried basil (or 1T. fresh)
1/4 t. garlic powder (or 2-3 finely minced cloves)

Mix all ingredients and spread on pizza dough. Top with 4-6 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese and toppings of choice. Bake in 425 degree preheated oven for 15-20 min.
