“This pizza crust is easy! Kids love to prepare pizza with the toppings of their choice, so feel free to divide this into 2 small pizza pans instead of one cookie sheet. Baking time would be the same.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In food processor fitted with metal blade, combine flour, salt and yeast; process until well mixed.
  2. With the machine running, pour in hot water and oil (down the feed tube) and process 35 to 45 seconds, or until smooth; add a little extra flour if necessary.
  3. Remove from processor and form into a smooth ball.
  4. Place in an oiled bowl, turning ball until completely coated with the oil.
  5. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise, in a warm spot, for about one hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  7. Lightly rub a small amount of olive oil on a cookie sheet and set aside.
  8. Punch down pizza dough and, on a floured surface, roll out into a rectangle to fit your cookie sheet (your dough will be about 1/4 inch thick).
  9. Place dough on oiled cookie sheet and spread your choice of sauce and toppings (and cheese!) on it; bake pizza for approximately 20 minutes.
