Pizza Dough Mix for the Pantry

Another GREAT mix to keep on hand for quick meals is a Pizza Dough Mix!
We love to make homemade pizza.
Peighton and Preston do the toppings which is always fun!

I tried THIS RECIPE and it was really good!
I will be keeping the dry mix in my pantry from now on.

I cut the recipe in half because if it was bad I didn't want to waste 12 cups of flour and all the other ingredients!
But now that I know it's good I will make the whole recipe next time.

Pizza Dough Mix
12 cups flour
1 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup sugar
3T salt
3T baking powder

Mix all ingredients together in large bowl and store in airtight container.

To make Dough you'll need:
1 cup hot water
 1 1/2 t fast rising yeast
 3 cups dough mix
2 T olive oil

Add yeast to hot water in a bowl and set aside for a few (five-ish) minutes. Then, combine with dry pizza mix and oil kneading until the dough is smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl and cover with plastic. Let it sit for a 30-60 minutes. (We usually go for the 30 minute time line and it comes out fine.)  Punch the dough down and then roll out to the size and shape you need.

I like to bake the crust alone for about 10 minutes then take it out and put toppings on.
Then I bake it for about 15 minutes more with toppings.
I"ve found that if I don't bake the crust by itself for part of the time the middle doesn't always get done.

This recipe is a great timesaver and is yummy too!
I think next time I make it I might replace some of the flour with whole wheat flour and see how we like that!
