The Best Pizza Dough - Grandma Good's:)

I've been married now for 6 amazingly wonderful years to my perfect match. During that time I have used several different pizza dough recipes trying to find that one that is just right. Back track a bit to our first year of marriage. Among other food items, my Grandma Good gave me a container of yeast and her pizza crust recipe. I don't think I ever used the recipe since it had gotten lost in my recipe box. The picture of that lovely lady above is my dear Grandma Good.

Just recently I decided I'd go ahead and make it. Guess what, it's not only the best, it's the easiest pizza dough to make. No long rising time or anything. Here it is. Thanks so much Grandma Good! I only wish you lived closer so I could share some pizza with you.

Pizza Crust
Indredients: 1 cup plus 1/3 well rounded cup flour
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons instant yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup warm water

1. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl and add warm water.
2. Mix all above well with a fork.
3. Cover and let rest 5-10 minutes.
4. Turn out onto greased pan or ungreased pizza stone and roll out to the edges of the pan.
5. Top with favorite toppings and bake at 425 - 450 degrees till done. When the top looks done, the rest should be:)



It's neat to see your Grandma Good again! I have a picture of you, Allysha, your mom and your her altogether, that I took years ago (Ally was about one, I think). I wonder how she's doing whenever I see it.

That recipe is very similar to one I use, which my mom gave me! It is very good and I find that if you add various things, you can get some really lovely breads, as well. Recently, I added whole wheat flour and two tablespoons of was a real hit ...especially with Chris. ;-)

Those additions sound very yummy:) I actually have an updated picture of mom, grandma, allysha and I from Easter. Very fun pix! I'll have to send them along. I think they are on mom's blog too.
