Recipe by Ohio First Lady Fran DeWine

  • 1 Tablespoon (1 package) yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 3 cups flour (Can be part whole wheat)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey or sugar
  • 1/2 cup warm water

Dissolve yeast into warm water. (Water should not be warmer than your body temperature.) Mix all the ingredients together until dough forms a ball and cleans sides of bowl. Knead a few times and make a ball. Let rise in greased bowl for an hour. (Or, if you don’t have an hour, go ahead and make pizza now.)

Add toppings. Place on cookie sheet.

Bake approximately 12 minutes at 450 degrees.

Adjust bake time to size and thickness of pizza.

When I am making the pizza without kids’ help, I make it in my food processor.
