Simple Pizza Crust


1 cup warm water
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 pkg yeast
3 cups flour

In a bowl, mix together water and sugar - sprinkle with yeast. Let sit 10 minutes. Add salt, olive oil, and flour. Knead until very smooth. Divide dough in half. Roll each piece into a 12 inch circle or square (depending on what kind of baking sheet you are going to use) and let rise 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 425 °F. Flatten each pizza crust, and top with safe toppings. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

Can be frozen and reheated for snacks. Heat in microwave oven.

The topping I used was precooked hamburger, zucchini slices, green beans, plus I lightly brushed the crust with tomato sauce before adding my toppings. The crust didn't rise too much but was light and tasty and if it does raise more than you'd like punch it down a bit before adding your toppings. The second pizza I made according to what my husband and I could eat (included cheese) and we loved it too.

Note: Any meat or vegetable your child likes could be used even what we may consider unusual.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.

  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen. You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.
