Homemade Pizza Dough

I decided to have all the little Haslem-cousins over to make personal pizza's and to play! I got this recipe from my friend, Lisa! They make pizza's every Friday night and she said this is the ultimate Pizza dough and SHE WASN'T LIEING! It was freaking delish. Perfect amount of sweetness! It makes 8 small personal pizzas or 2 big crusts. If I were doing pizza's for just my family (2 adults and 2 kids), then I would take half the dough and wrap it in saran wrap and place in a freezer bag and freeze it for a short time. Or if you want bread sticks you can quickly make bread sticks out of the second half.

Place in KitchenAid:
1 1/2 c warm water
1 Tbsp yeast
pinch sugar

Let proof until its foamy and then add:
1/3 c sugar
1 tsp salt
4 cups flour or until dough pulls away from the bowl and looks smooth.

Roll into a nice ball (DO NOT flour counter-top before rolling. It can make the dough to dry. To prevent sticking spray your counter-top with cooking spray). Place ball into a bowl and cover and let it rise for about 30 mins and then I roll it out. Be sure to bake for about 8-10 minutes at about 425 BEFORE you add your sauce and toppings. Pull it out of the oven and add sauce, cheese, and toppings. After adding toppings, brush the top of everything with a little melted butter and season with Garlic Salt if you would like. Put back in the oven for another 8-10 minutes. You will know when it is done.

Enjoy!
