...and pizza, too

My previously loved pizza crust recipe, which requires the use of the bread machine for rising and mixing and such (not a bad thing, just a time consuming operation), may be replaced by good old Betty Crocker's.

Hers involves the dissolving of one packet of yeast in a cup of warm water, to which is added 2.5 cups of flour, 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and sugar, and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Mix for only 20 strokes or so. Let it sit for 5 minutes, then spread the very sticky dough out on two generously olive-oiled baking sheets with olive-oiled hands. Add toppings.

Put it in a 400 degrees F oven for about 20 minutes, and it's golden. And crispy...and delicious... and...
