Pizza is definitely one of the best loved foods in the galaxy, and will probably stay that way for many centuries; no matter what the quote "All good things must come to a end" says.
This is my mom's home-made recipe for pizza that I absolutely LOVE.
First, combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add very warm water and oil; mix until well blended, about 1 minute. Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky. Knead on a floured surface, adding additional flour if necessary, until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes.
~Making the pizza~
Pat dough with floured hands to fill greased pizza pan or baking sheet, or roll dough on a floured counter to 12-inch circle; place in greased pizza pan or baking sheet. Form a rim by pinching the edge of the dough.
If you want, put the cheese on first ( Trust me), then the sauce, then your desired toppings,then more cheese.
Bake on lowest oven rack for 12 to 15 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and crust is browned.
The garlic sauce is very simple. Put butter and garlic powder in a microwave-safe bowl and heat it up for 10 seconds or less. Add more garlic or butter if needed.
~Dressing & Eating~
Take the pizza out of the oven. Sprinkle parmesan on the pizza and brush ( a new paintbrush will do the job) the garlic sauce on the crust. Save some of the garlic sauce to dip if desired.
Eat and Enjoy :)
