Cooking With Kiddies Recipe Share: Pizza Dough

We made mini pizzas at our first Cooking with Kiddies class last week. It was a success! The kids had a chance to get their hands messy and participate in the meal-making process. Most of all, they enjoyed finally munching on the product of their hard work!

A few of you had asked for me to share my pizza dough recipe, so here it is.

Homemade Pizza Dough

1/4 cup warm water (hot to the touch, but not boiling)
1 tsp sugar
1 pack yeast
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp salt

1. In 1/4 cup warm water, add 1 pack of yeast and 1 tsp sugar. Dissolve. Cover and let sit for 5-10 minutes until it foams.
2. In mixing bowl, mix flour with salt, oregano, basil, parmesan, and garlic powder.
3. Add yeast solution. Knead dough by adding more water until ball forms.
4. Cover dough with moist cloth and let sit for at least an hour.
