    This. Right here. So good!

    My only problem is, it sticks in the pan. Next time I'll try sprinkling cornmeal on the pan like they do at the pizzeria.

    Grandma Pizza

    Serves 4

    If the dough snaps back when you press it to the corners of the baking sheet, cover it, let it rest for 10 minutes, and try again.

    3 tablespoons olive oil
    3/4 cup water
    1 1/2 cups (8 1/4 ounces) bread flour
    2 1/4 teaspoons (1 pack) instant or rapid-rise yeast
    1 teaspoon sugar
    3/4 teaspoon salt

    1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded (2 cups)
    1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil (or sprinkle of dried)


    Coat rimmed baking sheet with 2 tablespoons oil.

    Combine water and remaining 1 tablespoon oil in 1-cup liquid measuring cup.

    Using stand mixer fitted with dough hook, mix flour, yeast, sugar, and salt on low speed until combined.

    With mixer running, slowly add water mixture and mix until dough comes together, about 1 minute.

    Increase speed to medium-low and mix until dough is smooth and comes away from sides of bowl, about 10 minutes. [I sometimes have to add more flour at this step to get it to pull together nicely.]

    Transfer dough to greased baking sheet and turn to coat. Stretch dough to 10 by 6-inch rectangle.

    Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in warm place until doubled in size, 1 to 1 hours.

    Stretch dough to corners of pan, cover loosely with plastic, and let rise in warm place until slightly puffed, about 45 minutes.

    Meanwhile, adjust oven rack to lowest position and heat oven to 500 degrees.


    Place tomatoes in colander and drain well. Combine drained tomatoes, oil, garlic, oregano, and salt in bowl.

    Combine mozzarella and Parmesan in second bowl.

    Sprinkle cheese mixture over dough, leaving -inch border around edges.

    Top with tomato mixture and bake until well browned and bubbling, about 15 minutes.

    Slide pizza onto wire rack, sprinkle with basil, and let cool for 5 minutes.

    This actually comes out like a real Pizza Hut crust, if you like that sort of thing.

    Does anyone know of a recipe similar to the old original crust from Godfathers Pizza?

    Homesteader..ya might find this of interest:

    It seems they may have changed the flour vendor...

    I hope you see this.

    When you say Mix for 3 minutes then add the flour....did you mean to mix the liquids for three minutes, or did you mean to mix everything for 3 minutes while adding the flour?

    And I was wondering how you make the peperoni balls?
