Soul Food Saturday

Anyone interested in family movie night? Well in this house we love evenings like these! Is the best part that you don’t have to cook, but take out? Or is it the one evening you plan on cooking together? For us we really enjoy cooking together, so this recipe fits these types of nights perfectly. How about home made pizza dough? Yes, one you made at home, together with all your favorite topping combinations.
Grab your favorite movie, its pizza night!
Homemade Pizza Dough 
Adapted from Center Cut Cook
 1 packet rapid rise yeast
1 c. warm water
2 ½ c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. honey
1 tsp. salt
2 tbs. olive oil
Pizza Sauce
Mozzarella/ cheddar cheese blend
Turkey pepperoni
Thin sliced onion, green bell pepper, tomato 
In a large bowl, add water and yeast. Stir until the yeast is dissolved. Then add flour, honey, salt, and olive oil. Stir to thoroughly combine. After all ingredients have combined then use your hands to knead the dough for several minutes. Shape the dough into a ball, and allow it to rest for 10 minutes.
Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees
This is where you decide if you want one large pizza or 2 small ones. If you’d like 2 small, divide the dough ball in half and set one aside covered. Roll the second half into an 8 inch circle. Spray your 9 inch pie plate and place rolled dough in the pie plate. Repeat with the second. If you’d prefer one large spray your pizza pan, and roll out dough to 16 inch circle. Place onto the pizza pan.
Add sauce, cheese, and toppings. Place the pizza into the oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is crispy and the cheese is melted. Cut into slices and enjoy!
