Pizza Crust/BBQ Chicken Pizza

Pizza Crust

3 cups flour (substitute 1 cup whole wheat if you want)
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons oil (usually olive)
1 cup warm water
1 packet of active-dry yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
1 teaspoon sugar

Dissolve yeast in warm water and add sugar. Wait until the yeast starts to foam. Combine yeast mixture and all other ingredients in a bowl. Knead for several minutes until dough clings together and no longer sticks to the bowl. (If you've been kneading for a while and the dough is still gooey, just add a little more flour). Knead for a few more minutes to mix everything together thoroughly. Spread over 9x13 pan or cookie sheet or a pizza pan. Add toppings. Bake at 350 for 20-30, minutes until crust is golden.

For the BBQ chicken pizza (our favorite), we add Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce, mozzarella, cooked shredded chicken breast, diced green peppers & red onions, cooked chopped bacon, diced fresh pineapple, fresh cilantro. Delicious!!
