Once you make this easy to prep crust you'll never buy one pre-made again. The crust comes out of the oven chewy, with a perfect balance of  saltiness and spice. Instructions:

  • 1 envelope of active dry yeast
  • 1/2 tsp of sugar
  • 2/3 cup warm water
  • 2 cups all purpose flour (1 white, 1 whole wheat)
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of pepper
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil

First combine the yeast, sugar, and water in a medium bowl stir briefly. Allow to stand until foamy ~10 minutes. Next, add the flour, salt, pepper, and olive oil to the bowl. Stir until dough holds together. Then remove from the bowl and kneed until smooth. Shape dough in to a ball brush with olive oil, place inside container, and let sit in a warm area for at least 90 minutes (longer you wait the more dough you'll get).
