Food Processor Pizza Dough

I love this pizza dough recipe because it gives you the homemade, yeasty taste of fresh dough, but is ready, start to finish, in less than 45 minutes.

1/2 to 3/4 cup warm water
1 package (or 1 Tbl) yeast
1 tsp sugar
2 cups flour
1 Tbl vegetable oil
1/2 tsp salt

Combine 1/4 cup of the water with the yeast and the sugar. Let sit about 5 minutes, or until all bubbly.

Put the flour, oil and salt into the food processor and blend about 10 seconds, or until all combined.

Turn on the food processor and drizzle the remaining water slowly down the tube until the dough forms a ball that cleans the side of the bowl. Knead the dough by letting the ball turn around the bowl 25 times.

Put the dough ball onto a greased pizza pan and cover with a bowl. Let stand 10 minutes.

Pat the dough out into desired shape. I usually make one big pizza, but last night we made 6 personal pizzas. Add desired toppings.

Bake at 425 until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly. A full size pizza takes 15-20 minutes. The little ones took under 10.

Playing with the dough. Nathanael's little pizza made several flying trips over his head.

Was it red shirt night at the Ryerson's?

And Beatrix looks eager to help in the first pic.

Yep, the kids were all in kahootz when they got dressed yesterday. Abigail even came and picked a shirt for Beatrix while I was getting her dressed. Nathanael, however, missed the memo.
