Italian Herb Pizza Crust

Delicious Herbed Crust for a flavorful, tender pizza. YUM

For the Sunday football game party I baked this pizza crust. We loaded it with our favorite cheeses, ham, pineapple,  peppers, olives and onions. Baked it until the cheese melted and the peppers cooked a bit.  And dug into that delicious mess!. We needed an extra dose of comfort food. Our team lost. Very sad outcome.  Fortunately the food was plentiful and very comforting indeed!
 
This recipe came to my recipe pile, about fifteen years ago. My oldest daughter brought it home from a friend’s kitchen. My girl LOVED their homemade pizza and finally hounded the recipe out of our dear friend Colleen. Rustling through my various scraps of paper with treasured recipes on them; brings back old times with good people. After all these years, I’m still blessed to have known them.

 This is an easy dough to make:

Start the yeast in your stand mixer. If your planning to make a lot of dough for yeast breads and need a good mixer with the bread dough hookir?t=homefoodjunk 20&l=ur2&o=1 , follow the affiliate link to Amazon to look over their selection.  If you just want to make an occasional dough as soft and easy as this one, roll up your sleeves and mix it in a big bowl and knead it by hand. It’s good exercise!
  • Add the ingredients into your mixer or bowl, and mix until it’s a nice, soft dough. Let it rise in a warm place about an hour;

A lovely tender dough, ready to rise

After the dough is doubled in size, punch it down and  roll in right onto your pizza stone or press it into your baking sheet.

Just a few pieces left. Baking the pizza on this pizza stone improves the flavor and texture of the pizza

This is my old baking stone. It’s been around a long time and is still doing great work in my oven. This stone makes rolling out the crust, baking my pizza crust, and pizzas and serving them; a one pan operation. If you’re needing Baking Stonesir?t=homefoodjunk 20&l=ur2&o=1 click the affiliate link to look over Amazon’s selection. Some of them have free shipping!

Bake you’re crust, slather it with pizza sauce once it’s out  of the oven. Now load it up with all your favorite pizza goodies. Cheese, meat, veggies… Bake it all until the cheese melts and enjoy. Delicious!

We don't eat a lot of pizza, but if I were to make one at home, I'd want to make homemade crust. I'll keep this one in mind.

Heidy this crust has excellent flavor, and as we know, making it yourself means you can adjust the seasonings to fit your particular family's preference. Let me know how you like it!
