DIRECTIONS

  • To make the dough: In a bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine flour, oil, salt and sugar.
  • Add in yeast water and mix together, making a ball.
  • Knead by hand 5-10 minutes, until when you press your thumb down the indention stays. (You could also use your hand/stand mixer if it has a kneading attachment for about 2-3 minutes or you could use your bread machine).
  • Rub small amount of olive oil around dough, to keep it from sticking, and place in a large bowl, covering with saran wrap.
  • Place in a warm area to rise atleast 30 minutes.
  • While the dough is rising, cook macaroni in boiling salted water until al dente.
  • Drain and return to pan.
  • Add in 1/3 jar of sauce and butter, stir.
  • Set to the side.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Roll out dough to fit either your pizza stone or out on a baking sheet, pinching up edges to make the crust.
  • With a spoon, add a very thin layer of sauce on the dough and put in the oven to bake for 15 minutes or until dough is almost fully cooked.
  • Remove from oven and add cooked macaroni; cover with more cheese sauce.
  • Place back in the oven and continue to cook for an additional 10 minutes or until dough is fully cooked.
  • Enjoy!
