Homemade Pepperoni Pizza

One of my Flickr contacts asked me once, "Don't you ever just eat pizza?" Well... here's your answer. :)

 

I make my own pizza crust with my bread machine - you can also make it by hand or with the dough hook on a stand mixer. I think it's much tastier than delivery pizza - the crust is light and crisp and a little sweet.

 

Here's what I use...

1 cup + 2 tablespoons warm water

3 cups flour

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

2 teaspoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2.5 teaspoons yeast

 

The dough recipe makes two pizza crusts. I usually bake the crusts without toppings first - for about 10 minutes at 375 degrees. (brushed with olive oil)

 

Then, I top them with whatever I'm in the mood for and bake until everything is melty and the crust is golden brown.

 

The husband and I were in the mood for traditional pepperoni this weekend!
