I found this recipe in the Food Allergy News Cookbook. My girls love it, as well as their friends! We use this crust for pizza and for garlic and cinnamon bread sticks, as well.

Definitely not the best pizza crust I've ever made, but better than the crust on a frozen pizza. However, it's hard to find one that whips up this quick. I'll probably make it again if I'm in a pinch for time. If you want it extra crispy, use a pizza stone.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, mix together water and sugar. Sprinkle with yeast. Allow to 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. Place on lightly greased baking sheet and let rise 20 minutes. Flatten each and top with pizza toppings. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes.
  2. If you choose to use this recipe for garlic or cinnamon bread sticks, bake untopped for 5 minutes. Remove from oven, top with margarine of choice and either garlic salt or cinnamon sugar mixture. Return to oven for about 3 minutes. Remove from oven and cut into breadsticks.
