Pizza Crust Recipe

Last night I decided I wanted pizza. I didn't want that sh***y pizza from that place that delivers nor did I want that cardboard pizza from that other questionable place. I wanted delicious, rich, fattening pizza with enough Ranch dressing to cover the plate.

and I got it :) I made it myself, from scratch. It was delicious, simple, and the recipe can be made healthier by any variety of methods. I don't have any pictures to show just now, but imagine the tastiest pizza known to man, fresh out of the oven with a bit of steam rising from it and the edges of the pepperonis browned and crispy. Yea. Now wipe that drool off your lip.

If you want to try and recreate your own delicious pizza, here's the recipe I used for the crust, feel free to change some of the flour to whole wheat or whatever suits you, its a very simple recipe to follow:

1 tablespoon of oil
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package yeast

Mix the above and let sit about 5 minutes

Then mix together with 1 3/4 cups flour until it forms a ball.

Knead the dough on a lightly floured sheet so that it is stretchy but will not break easily.

Place in a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap for about an hour, the dough will expand to about twice its original size.

Pound, punch, or otherwise flatten to about a 12 inch circle, top off with your favorite toppings and extra cheese and place in 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes.

It is to DIE FOR!

Ranch dressing on pizza?
Please, please - what toppings go with that?

I have my own pizza dough recipe - which is not great but it does the trick (of stopping all the toppings from falling through one's fingers). I'm allergic to yeast, you see.

But NOT allergic to ranch dressing.

My "secret" ingredient is using eggplant as a pizza topping.
