My Favorite Fast and Easy Pizza Dough

Dough (1 of 1)-3

If I am choosing my favorite food (in the main dish category that is, because this girl has a sweet tooth and lord knows I couldn’t live without chocolate!) it would be pizza all the way. It’s the perfect combo of all the things that make me happy: cheese, carbs, and lots of variety for toppings.

Really, it’s the perfect food. The possibilities of pizza toppings are ENDLESS, and its easy to throw together. That’s where this crust recipe comes in. Sure, you can but crust dough or even pre-baked from the store, but its much more impressive when you  make the dough yourself, especially on a busy weeknight. This dough comes together quickly, only has to rest for 10 minutes and is super easy to work with. It’s great for pizza, calzones, stromboli, and I have even shaped it into bread sticks and let rise. Easy, versatile and delicious!

Also, I’m sure no one would be upset if you double the recipe  for this Vanilla Crumb Dessert Pizza. I’d love to hear what your favorite pizza toppings are!
