'Pioneer Woman' Pizza Crust
Jana here with a delicious pizza crust recipe! When I make homemade pizza, I have tried several different recipes for the crust. Some have been okay, and some haven't been so great. I decided to try The Pioneer Woman's recipe, and it didn't disappoint! It was so easy to make, and was the perfect texture. Light, a little crispy, and so good! This recipe makes 2 pizza crusts, so either cut it in half if you only want one, or save one in the fridge for another night! It's also best to make the dough 24 hours in advance!
Pioneer Woman Pizza Crust
1 teaspoon active dry or instant yeast
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup olive oil
1. Sprinkle the yeast over 1 1/2 cups warm (not lukewarm) water.
2. In a mixer, combine flour and salt. With the mixer running on low speed (paddle attachment), drizzle in olive oil until combined with the flour. Next, pour in yeast mixture and mix until just combined.
3. Coat a separate mixing bowl with a light drizzle of olive oil and form the dough into a ball. Toss to coat dough in olive oil, then cover tightly with plastic wrap, and store in the fridge until you need it.
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Drizzle olive oil on a large baking sheet, and use fingers to coat thoroughly. Remove half the pizza dough from the bowl. Stretch pizza dough into a large rectangle, pressing with fingers to finish forming. Dough will be very thin. Top with sauce, and toppings of choice. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until crust is golden.
