Friday nights we usually eat takeout of some sort as a treat but slowly it morphed into pizza night. We all like pizza but my older son LOVES pizza (he has several t-shirts professing his love for pizza) and somehow his love for pizza inspired our pizza nights. It started out with takeout pizza but as my sons got older, I thought it would be fun to make our own at home. Thanks to Fleischmann’s®RapidRise Yeast and 30 minute pizza crust recipe, you can make amazing pizza from scratch in no time! I love making it from scratch because there’s something about it being homemade that makes it taste so good. It’s also a bonding activity with the kids and all the extra steps like measuring and pouring is something that they enjoy and it’s all worth it to see the look on their faces when they see what they’ve created. I find that a lot of people are intimidated by yeast so they tend to stay away from homemade bread. Here are a few things you can do to ensure success – be sure the yeast isn’t expired, expired yeast is less likely to rise. Be sure the liquid that you are using to mix with the yeast is not too hot or it will kill the yeast and the dough won’t rise. Water shouldn’t be cold either, yeast won’t activate. Add water heated to 120˚F-130˚F and follow recipe instructions. What I love about this recipe is using Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast is that you can mix everything together in one bowl, requires little kneading and is ready in 30 minutes. It’s super easy and a novice can make this recipe. Typically I like to make pepperoni or cheese pizzas for the kids and mix it up with whatever topping we have on hand for me and my husband. I had leftover jerk chicken so I used it to make a Jerk Chicken Pizza with red onions, mozzarella and provolone cheese and it was a hit!
