Morsels of Life - Basic Pizza Crust - A basic pizza crust made from scratch and suitable for just about any pizza. Make a few extra and freeze!

We had a hankering for pizza and some extra time, so I figured I could go ahead and make a basic pizza crust. I like this pizza crust even though it is so simple and straightforward (or should I say, because it's so simple and straightforward)! Since this is a basic pizza crust, it goes well with just about any pizza, and you can easily customize it when you're making your pizza. Since it does take a while to make the crust, I sometimes like to make enough for a few crusts and then freeze for later.

What's your favorite kind of pizza?

  6. I love all kinds of pizza, but especially a Pizza Quattro Stagioni! I like that you have used a combination of white and whole wheat flour in your pizza dough recipe. It looks really delicious, CJ. Thank you for sharing this delicious, wholesome recipe with the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Take care and stay well.
