Pizza Dough or Bread sticks:
1 TBSP yeast
2 TBSP sugar
3 Cups flour
1 1/2 Cups warm water
1/2 TSP salt
Combine ingredients and mix well. Knead for 3 minutes (I use my Kitchen Aid Mixer), adding more flour if needed for a soft, but not sticky dough. (I usually add about and additional 2 TSBP while it's kneading, just add enough so as it is kneading it pulls away from the bowl.) Let rest for 10 minutes (the thicker you want your crust, the longer you can let it rest). Roll out dough with a rolling pin and fit into a pizza pan. (You can also use a thick cookie sheet, greased with a little shortening if you don't have a pizza pan). Top with your favorite toppings. (This part is super fun for the kids!) Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes until crust is golden brown.
For bread sticks, roll out dough onto a cookie sheet. Cut the dough into rectangles and brush with melted butter. Sprinkle lightly with garlic salt and Parmesan or mozzarella cheese; or for a dessert bread stick, brush with butter and dip in a cinnamon sugar mixture. Let rest 10 minutes, then bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes.
The whole process from start to finish was about a half hour, which is what I normally spend making dinner. The nice part is the dough doesn't take forever to rise, while it is rising you can get your toppings ready.
