On Friday, we had company over and it was pizza night. I had my usual Jiffy Mix Pizza Crust, but we had to make 2 pizzas and decided to take a chance and try a new recipe for the crust. One I hadn't tried before.
I have to admit, the recipe appealed to me because it had honey in it! And we are going to try our hand at raising bees for honey this year... so I decided to try it! I altered it a bit ( no surprise!). It has a little bit of a sweetness to it, but it was very good! Hubby has been a little more picky on a few recipes lately, and he liked it as well.
I didn't get any pictures because I feel a little silly taking so many pictures of my food anyways, and doing it in from of company... well.... just didn't want to do it. So here it is, no pics but the recipe:
Homemade Pizza Crust
1 1/2 C. hot water
1/3 C. olive oil
1/3 C. honey
2 tsp. sea salt
1 Tbsp. yeast
4- 4 1/2 C. Flour (I use unbleached flour & add some wheat in place of white)
Mix together water, oil, honey, salt & yeast. Then add flour. Knead for 5 minutes. Let rise until doubled in a greased bowl, in a warm area. After rising, press into desired (greased) pizza pan.
This recipe makes enough for a Large thick crust pizza, or 2 medium-large thin crust pizzas.
Bake for 10-15 minutes at 400 degrees.
***********Slowly, I am trying to incorporate new recipes to make more from scratch. Come back and visit us on Thursday to share what YOU have made "From Scratch..." this week. I will share also all that we made this week also.
Like I mentioned last week, if you are new to starting to make more from scratch, take it recipe by recipe. One day at a time. And when you test the recipes on your family, make sure everyone likes it! And if they like it, you have ONE! Then try another one. Eventually you may have everything made from scratch! Or like me, you at least have a lot more things made from scratch than you did! :) One day, maybe I will have everything made from scratch... I'm just gonna work towards it slowly. Slowly with me, will make it more of a habit.
Just glad to have checked one more off the list... :)
