Super Quick Pizza Crust

adapted from Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook

Makes 2 medium sized crusts or one extra large (we fill a jelly roll pan with a nice rectangular pizza)

Prep time: 7 minutes

Sit time: 10 minutes (or less if you're really in a pinch)

Cost: $.50

flour: .10, whole wheat flour: .30, yeast: .10

Note: I use a combination of whole wheat and all-purpose flour: about 1 1/2 C whole wheat and 1 C all-purpose. I know it can be made entirely with all-purpose flour if you wish. I haven't tried it with 100% whole wheat, but I bet it would work just fine. 

2 1/4- 3 1/4 C flour

1 Tbsp yeast

1/4 tsp salt

1 C water

2 Tbsp oil

Mix 1 1/2 C flour, yeast, and salt together in a bowl. Add water and oil and mix. Add flour in 1/2 C increments until it becomes too stiff to mix. At that point, turn it on to the counter and knead it for a few minutes, adding flour as necessary. 

Let it sit for 10 minutes, which is usually just the right amount of time for me to get a sauce ready and some vegetables chopped. 

Spread it out on a greased pan and have at it with whatever toppings you wish.
