This pizza crust recipe is straight forward and creates two round personal size pizzas! It can also be doubled to make two large rectangular pizzas!
Combine flour, salt, sugar, and yeast in a large bowl.
Combine water and oil in a separate bowl and then add to flour mixture.
Stir until it forms a ball then turn dough on to a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes (or use a dough hook on an electric mixture- it's so much easier)!
Coat a large bowl with cooking spray.
Place dough in bowl, turning once to coat top.
Cover and let rise 45 minutes or until doubled (if you don't knead it enough then it won't rise very much but should still be alright for rolling out).
Punch down and divide in half. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
Take out 1 portion and roll into a circle 7 to 10 inches across (as you can see, we didn't quite get them into circles, but that's okay).
Place on baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal and place in an oven preheated to 425 degrees for 10 minutes or until lightly brown on bottom.
Repeat with other crust. Both of ours got large bubbles, which we popped halfway through baking.
Cornstarch is so messy!
While waiting for second crust, add pizza sauce and toppings.
I topped my pizza with fresh mozzarella and basil while my sister added all her favorite toppings- shredded cheese, turkey pepperoni, black olives, and banana peppers!
Place pizza directly on oven rack and bake until cheese is bubbly- about 12-18 minutes.
Repeat with second pizza.
Enjoy with an awesome movie!
