I apologize for the lack of pictures with this post. I made pizza for lunch at my mom's house today, using a pizza crust recipe I found in one of her cookbooks, a really old one put together by the ladies in my grandmother's church Relief Society many years ago. It didn't occur to me until just now that I should post this recipe, hence no pictures. The pizza was absolutely delicious, and I loved this crust! No kneading involved, it was fast and easy.
This post is mostly for me. I didn't write down the recipe, so I'm trying to type this up as I remember doing it earlier today. I don't want to forget this crust - it was EASY!
Really Easy Pizza Crust
1 packet yeast
1 1/4 cups warm water
2 tbsp. oil
1 tsp. salt
3 1/2 to 4 cups flour
Mix ingredients. Rise for 15 to 30 minutes. Spread on greased pizza pan or baking sheet (I sprinkled the pan liberally with corn meal after greasing it - really improves the texture and non-stick-to-the-pan-ness of the crust). Top with sauce, cheese, and desired toppings. Bake at 425 12-20 minutes.
Read those instructions again if you need convincing. Mix, rise, spread, top, bake. Simple as that.
I topped it with basic pizza stuff - a simple homemade sauce, shredded cheese, pepperoni, olives, and mushrooms. And Vienna sausages. Yes, it worked. They tasted great.
