Pizza From Scratch {Home Made Wheat Pizza Crust Recipe}

I love making food from scratch, and pizza is no exception. This is the best home made wheat pizza crust ever! The ingredients for the crust and toppings were mostly what I had on hand. I didn't plan this in advance....dinner was supposed to be in 40 minutes and I just whipped this up and YOU CAN TOO!

It TASTES even better than it looks :-) Yum!
**Pizza is so versatile. You can top it with practically anything**
Today I used fresh tomatoes from my garden, which gave it a unique flavor. I will certainly use tomatos again.

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Place pizza stone or teracotta tile in oven while oven is preheating

Home Made Wheat Pizza Crust Recipe:
3 Cups fresh ground wheat flour
1 TB baking powder
1 Tsp salt
1 TB sugar
2 TB oil
1 Cup warm water
Mix all ingredients together and kneed for approx 5 minutes. Let dough rest for 5 minutes while you gather the pizza toppings.
(Yeild=Two 12" crusts)

Pizza Toppings on tonight's pizza:
Pizza Sauce (I used tomato sauce and added garlic + italian herbs. measurements)
8 oz Motzerella cheese per pizza
Fresh tomatoes from my garden
Handful of olives (sliced)
Shredded cooked chicken (you can use leftover chicken from another meal)

Once oven and pizza stone are preheated, stretch out your dough and form the crust. Place the crust on the hot stone and it will start cooking immediately. Quickly add the sauce, cheese, and toppings and place it in the oven for approx 7 minutes (until cheese looks bubbly and slightly toasted).
