20 Minutes

  1. Mix flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add garlic, water and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Beat until he dough forms into a ball. If dough is sticky, add 1 tablespoon of extra flour at a time. If dough is too dry, add more water 1 tablespoon at a time.

  2. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead to perfection – a smooth, firm ball.
  3. Grease a large bowl with the 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Place dough inside and cover with plastic wrap. Set in a warm area and allow the dough to double in size, about an hour.
  4. Once dough has risen, place on a floured surface and divide in two. Place clean dish towel or plastic wrap over each and let sit for 10 minutes.

  6. Melt butter in a small dish. Mix garlic salt.

  8. Bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes, until dough starts to bubble in the middle. Remove from oven add toppings – pizza sauce, cheese/es, veggies and meats.
