Super Fast Pizza Recipes

Dough Recipe:
1 pk Fast-rising dry yeast
3 c All-purpose white flour
1 c Hot water (120F-to-130F)
1/2 ts Salt

Toppings:
1/2 c Mozzarella - thinly sliced - or cut into 1-inch cubes
1 c Tomato sauce
1 1/2 lb -Fresh tomatoes - seeded, drained - and roughly chopped
2 Garlic cloves - peeled and minced
1/2 ts Dried oregano
6 -Fresh basil leaves, shredded
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tb Olive oil

PREHEAT OVEN TO 500F.

(MIXING AND KNEADING: 1 1/2 MINUTES.) Place the yeast
and 1 cup of the flour in the bowl of a food processor and pulse once using the metal knife or the plastic dough blade. With the machine running, pour in the hot water (make certain it's hot when you use it). As soon as it's in, turn the machine off; add the salt and remaining 2 cups of flour. Next, pulse until the dough
begins to hold together; then let the machine run continously until a ball of dough forms.

(ASSEMBLY: 5 MINUTES.) Lightly oil the pan with vegetable oil and dust with coarsely ground yellow cornmeal. Press the dough out into an 8-inch circle with your fingertips and then roll or stretch it out into a 15-or-18-inch pizza shell. Fit the shell onto prepared pan. Sprinkle desired toppings over dough, and finish with a drizzling of olive oil. Bake 15 minutes or until the crust is golden and the topping is bubbly. For a well-done crust bake 5 minutes
longer.

3 bacon slices, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
§ cup halved peeled large garlic cloves (about 2 1/2 ounces)
12 ounces assorted fresh wild mushrooms, thinly sliced

(Can be made 8 hours ahead; chill bacon and vegetables.)

Preheat oven to 450°F. Place pizza crust on baking sheet. Sprinkle cheeses, then vegetable mixture and bacon over crust. Bake until cheeses melt, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Let stand 2 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve.

Crusty Pizza Dough (see recipe below) or any unbaked, low fat, pizza shell
1 16-oz. Can refried beans
2 tsp. Fajita seasoning
6 slices fat free cheese singles, sharp cheddar flavor
1 to 2 c. Bottled chunky salsa
2 scallions with tops, sliced
1 c. Lettuce, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
1 c. Nonfat sour cream

Make pizza dough. Bake for 3 minutes in a 400 F oven. Remove from oven and top in this order: cheese singles; refried beans; fajita seasoning. Return to oven and bake until pizza crust turns light brown and is baked. Remove from oven and cut into 8 slices. Place lettuce, salsa, jalapeno, scallions and sour cream out in bowls for everyone to choose their own topping. Serve warm.

Crusty Pizza Dough
(for a 1 1/2-pound bread machine)
1 c. Water
1 Tbsp. Unsweetened applesauce
½ tsp. Salt
1 ½ c. All-purpose flour
1 ½ c. Whole wheat flour
1 ½ tsp. Yeast

Use the dough cycle (or the basic cycle on manual). Once dough has gone through the first rise & a full second kneading, remove the dough from the bread machine. Roll dough into a rectangle or circle (depending on your pizza sheet). Spray pan with a little Pam. Place dough on pan, turning any excess dough under to form a crust along the outer edge. For a thick & chewy crust, let rise 30 minutes before baking; for thin crust, bake right away. Bake in a preheated 500 F oven for 3 minutes. Remove and add sauce &
toppings. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes until crust begins to brown and any cheese is melted.
