Way Better Than Frozen Pizza

Frozen pizza is gross and I don't know why anyone eats it.  Sure it's convenient, but it's not cheap and it's full of preservatives and who knows what.  This pizza here is cheaper, healthier, tastes better and is ready in the same amount of time it takes to go to the store and buy that frozen crap.  It might be even quicker than that.  Here's how its done.

To make the dough, throw together your flour, baking powder and salt. You can use whatever flour you like.  I often use a mixture of whole wheat and rye.  Add in any seasonings you may want if you want them.  Add in the water and oil and mix it until it's a nice soft dough. This takes about two to three minutes.  It may look shaggy at first like it's not coming together, it will.  Do not add more water.

This dough is super soft and rolls like butter.  Check those rolling skills I have, that circle is awesome.  This dough has garlic and basil in it.

Add whatever toppings float your boat.  This has sauce and cheese, mushrooms, red pepper, red onion, tomatoes and black olives.  I added garlic and Italian seasoning on top.

Pop this in the oven for 20 minutes, then 5 minutes under the broiler if you like.

Om nom nom. 

Super Quick Pizza Dough
2 Cup Flour
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
2/3 Cup Warm Water
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Preheat oven 400F/200C
Combine dry ingredients, as well as any desired additional seasonings.  Add wet ingredients, mix until soft dough forms, 2-3 minutes.  (This step make take longer if you are doing it by hand, that's fine don't worry.)
Roll the dough out into whatever shape you would like.  Top and bake for 20 minutes.  Broil 5 minutes to finish it off.
