Homemade Chicago Style Pizza~

1 pkg. active dry yeast
1 c. warm water (105-115 degrees)
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
2 1/2 c. all purpose or whole wheat flour (if using self rising flour omit salt)

CRUST: Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in remaining ingredients. Beat vigorously 20 strokes. Let rest 5 minutes. Press into bottom and sides of a 14"x2" round deep dish, lightly oiled pizza pan and bake in preheated 425 degree oven about 10 minutes. You can use a regular pizza pan just make a rolled crust around the edges of the pan to hold in all the ingredients.

Take out of the oven and add pizza sauce.

8 ounce can of Tomato Sauce
1/2 t. Basil
1/2 t. Oregano
1/4 t. garlic powder
1 t. sugar
1 t. onion powder
1 T. olive oil
Mix all together and put on pizza crust.

Last add all of your favorite toppings:
Italian Sausage
Canadian Bacon

Bake at 425 degrees for about 10 more minutes or until golden brown.

~However tonight at our house the we are taking the pantry challenge so we will

I am desperate for pizza tonight but since I'm in Phase 1 (thanks to a little indiscretion over the weekend) it will be grilled chicken for me tonight--and Doc gets no choice in the matter! He eats whatever I put in front of him. That's in our marriage vows or at least it should have been!

Hi Carrie, just wanted to stop by and say hello, catch up with posts:-) This pizza looks delicious. I made PW's cinnamon rolls last week, I think I'm ready to try homemade pizza dough!! Hope you're having a wonderful week.
