Pizza Crust Recipe; Fresh Made Pizza; Texas Bed & Breakfast Dinner

We serve several dinners here at Star of Texas Bed & Breakfast, and one of my favorites is the hand made pizza. I have a simple recipe (sorry have no idea where it came from, so if this is yours, add your name on it!)  It is easy to mix and you let it rise to use that day or can even put it in the refrigerator for several days. So here goes…


1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
3/4 cup very warm water
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons olive oil
(wow, that’s all?, yep that simple)

So sprinkle the yeast over the top of the very warm water and set aside for a few minutes while you mix the other stuff in a bowl.
Mix the flour and salt together, if you are using a mixer, slowly drizzle the olive oil into the flour mix, if you do it by hand like me, I add the olive oil to the water, then slowly pour into the flour as I mix together.  Now put olive oil in another bowl, just enough to coat, and turn the dough into this and flip over to cover in the oil, now cover tightly and set aside to rise for 1 to 2 hours, or put in the fridge and use in a few days.  If you put it in the fridge, set it out to warm up and rise a little before you use it.

roll it and pat it and throw it in the oven

Now on a floured surface roll out your dough to the thickness you like, I love thin crust pizza so I roll it thin, you can make one big one or several personal pizzas as I do for my guest.
Place it on a baking sheet or pizza stone if you are lucky to have one, in an over at 350 degrees bake till just getting light brown, remove and top with all your favorite stuff and lots of cheese, then place back in the oven to brown the crust edges and melt all that wonderful gooeyness on top.
Serve it with salad, vino, dessert and friends…..enjoy!
