Did I seriously just tag this “Easy Weeknight Meal”? Yes I did! This IS an easy pizza recipe.
Pizza is probably the most requested meal in my house. Everyone loves it. And I have a family full of pizza snobs. This thin crust recipe is so easy, it can be made any time. There are no special ingredients, no yeast, no rising time, and you don’t have to let it rest in the fridge for 24 hours. I hate it when I find that perfect recipe and I read the instructions and realize I should have started planning earlier in the week (see every New York Style Pizza recipe on Pinterest).
The recipe makes one medium size pizza. It’s easy to make multiples. No magic calculations are needed, just double it, triple it, or make however many you want. Last night I made four. We just line them up on the counter and keep throwing them in the oven as soon as opens up.
The crust recipe calls for honey. You can replace that with another liquid sweetener. I have used maple syrup and corn syrup with good results. Whole wheat flour works great, too. A little bit more water is usually needed, though.
We also always shred our own cheese. I find that it tastes and melts so much better, and it is definitely less expensive.
Oh, to be a teenager again! I wish I could get away with eating that much pizza! This is my daughter’s first plate and the reason I had to make four pizzas last night.
Did you believe that? Cause I’m pretty sure we all ate at least that much.
We make vegan versions of this pizza all of the time. We just replace the honey in the crust with maple syrup or corn syrup and use vegan mozzarella for the cheese.
