Friday night pizza

When our children were home, we had homemade pizza most every Friday or Saturday evening. Back then, I made 4 pizzas at a time and there were rarely leftovers.
I made Foccacia pizza for just Jeff and I this Friday. This dough makes a thick crust with a little crunch to it because of the oil and cheese. With cheese bought with coupons, I think this pizza cost about $1.50, even cheaper that hot and readies at Little Ceasar and much tastier.

1 cup warm water
1 package dry yeast
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. dry milk powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. onion powder
2 Tablespoon oil
½ teaspoon garlic powder
3 cups flour
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 T grated Parmesan cheese .
1. Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in sugar, milk powder, salt, onion powder, oil, garlic and flour. Stir until incorporated; turn onto floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, several minutes. Place dough ball in an bowl with 2 Tablespoons of oil and parmesan cheese, and turn a few times to coat the surface of the dough. Cover with a damp cloth, and let rise in a warm place until double in bulk, 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
2. Grease a 15 inch pizza stone or pan. Punch risen dough down and roll to fit the pan. Allow to rise for an additional 30 minutes.
3. Top with pizza toppings as desired, We like a roma sauce, mozzarella cheese, onions and tamed jalapenos.
3. Bake at 400ยบ for 15 minutes or until nicely browned. Cool slightly before cutting.
