Pizza Pizza!

So, lately pizza has been a popular dish at our house. Mostly because it is easy, pretty quick, and super good. My mom wanted a few of the recipes so here they are for all to enjoy.

Easy Pizza Dough
(from my wonderful friend, Emily Blodgett)
1 pkg. (or 2 1/4 tsp) of active yeast
1 cup warm (not hot) water
1 tbl sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
2 tbl oil
2 1/2-1/3 cup flour (try 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1 1/2-2 cup all purpose flour)

Directions: Mix yeast in warm water. Add sugar and let sit 5 minutes. Add salt and oil; mix. Gradually add flour to form a stiff dough. Allow dough to rest and rise with a towel over it for 20-30 minutes. Roll out into a pizza pan and poke all over with a fork. Bake at 425 for 3-4 minutes. Remove from over. Add toppings and return to oven 10-12 minutes.

We have recently attempted this recipe I got off

BBQ Chicken Pizza
Mix- 1 cup of hickory BBQ Sauce, 1 tbl of honey, 1 tsp molasses, 1/3 c. of brown sugar, 1/2 bunch cilantro, and 2-3 cups of shredded chicken - over medium heat.
Once mixed spread over pizza. Add 1 c. Gouda cheese (I used mozerella) and 1 cup of sliced red onions. Bake at 425 for 15-20 minutes.

There is another recipe I really want to try that sounds wonderful...
