One of our apartment's longest traditions is our end of the month pizza party. Some of you might be wondering why anyone living in New York, where delicious pizza is on every corner, would want to make their own. But, at the end of long month when no one wants to go grocery shopping and everyone has random vegetables or bits of cheese leftover, we throw it all together on a slab of dough and enjoy delicious, fresh pizza.
1 1/2 Cups Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Sugar
2/3 Cups warm Water
1 Yeast packet
Preheat oven to 425. Mix flour, salt, sugar, yeast together in a large bowl. Add water and form into a ball. Cover bowl, and let the dough rise for 15 minutes. Put some olive oil on your hands and beginning in the center stretch dough to fit pan.*
Feeling lazy?? Lots of pizza places will sell you their dough for very little of your dough, just ask!
Mozzarella Cheese(for this pizza I used homemade cheese!)
This is one of my friends' favorite pizzas, but you can throw almost anything on them(except for pineapples and ham because Hawaiian pizzas are gross). Cook for about 17 minutes, until cheese is melty and the crust is crusty.
