Quick Rise Pizza Margherita (With Topping Variations)

40 mins (prep 35, cooking 5)

This recipe was created while teaching the 2013 cooking elective, "Cuisine Around the World", at my daughter's charter school. This is one of the recipes I used for our "visit" to Italy. It was a creation that resulted after reducing several recipes down to an individual pizza sized dough amount, and testing them by making the dough in a small bowl, and kneading on a small amount of waxed paper. I wanted each student to be able to make their own individual pizza dough and pizza. This recipe makes a whole, family-sized pie, but you can divide the dough into 4 individual pies. I made this pizza a Margherita for the lesson, but feel free to use other toppings to make your favorite; Hawaiian, pepperoni, veggie, meat lovers, chicken BBQ, chicken and ranch; etc.
