This pizza crust is a fairly quick and easy way to still have the pizza you love without all the sodium of takeout or store-bought. Just a few basic ingredients and a little time to let the yeast proof and you’ll have a delicious pizza crust ready to load up with your favorite toppings.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 package (1 1/4 tsp.) dry yeast

  • 1 cup warm water

  • 1 tbsp. oil

  • 1 tbsp. sugar

  • 2 cups all purpose flour

Directions

  • Dissolve yeast in warm water.
  • Stir in 1 tbsp. oil, 1 tbsp. sugar, and gradually add flour until a soft dough forms.
  • Knead 15-20 strokes then place dough into greased bowl. Be sure that all sides of the dough are coated in oil. Cover and leave to rest in a warm area until dough is proofed and increased in size.
  • Gently stretch dough onto pizza pan, pizza stone, or sheet pan.
  • Top with your favorite pizza sauce (preferably low-sodium) and toppings.
  • Bake at 400*F for 20-30 minutes or until the crust is golden around the edges and the cheese is melted.
  • Cut into 8 equal slices and serve.
