Easy Peasy Pizza

It makes sense that one of the first food changes in our household would be our weekly pizza order. When our kids were younger our family used to break out the baking supplies to make our own pizzas every week. I’m not sure why we ever replaced our little tradition with the more expensive, less tasty alternative but we decided it was about time to claim pizza night.

We dusted off our favorite recipe and adjusted the toppings to include our new THRIVE LIFE items. This recipe is super fast and easy to begin with but it definitely helps to not have to chop veggies or cook any meat! All of the toppings in the pizza shown below (except the pepperoni) were scooped from #10 cans, rehydrated, and added to the pizza prior to baking. Delicious!


2 Tbsp active dry yeast
2 cups warm water (105º to 115º F)
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp salt
4 Tbsp vegetable oil
5 cups flour

> Dissolve the yeast in the water and wait for it to proof (about 5 minutes)
> Add the sugar, salt, and oil to the yeast mixture
> Gradually add the flour a little at a time until you have a doughy ball
> Dump the mixture onto a floured surface and knead into a smooth dough
> Separate into 3-4 smaller dough balls (depending on the number & size of your intended pizzas)
> Roll out & press dough onto a greased pizza pan
> Add toppings and bake at 450º for 8-10 minutes (until the crust looks crispy and lightly browned)
