1 Hour : Make It : Pizza

Making pizza on the weekend has been a tradition in our family for awhile now. Although we have our favorite kind it's fun to try new creations with different toppings. Making pizza's a fun family activity because there can be lots of involvement (making dough, rolling dough out, toppings) and there really is no messing one up. I think it would be fun to make small individual pizzas so each family member can create the pizza of their choice.

Here is a no fail pizza recipe. This is the one we use.

1 yeast packet (about 2 1/4 tsp)
1/2 cup warm water
1/8 tsp sugar
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt

Mix all ingredients and mix on medium power for 4 min. Let set for 1 minute and then beat again for 2 more minutes. Keep covered and let rise for 1 1/2 hours or until double in bulk.

Make at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes

We've made those individual pizzas! With bowls of interesting toppings (even black olives), they absolutely love creating their own dinner.
