Spoon the batter into the paper liners, filling each one to the top.

 Bake for 30 minutes, until the tops are crisp and a toothpick comes out clean.

Basic Pizza Dough

Having a growing kids is getting expensive.  Buying pizza getting expensive because we are buying not only 2 pizza but we are buying 3 pizza.  So I was start making our own pizza.  Now I am thinking to make pizza from the scratch.  So I found this basic pizza dough.  It is a recipe by Emerill Lagasse.

Serves:1 large pizza crust or 2 medium pizza crusts


1 cup warm (110 degrees F) water
1 (1/4-ounce) envelope active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon plus
 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 cups bleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt


1. In a large bowl, combine the water, yeast, sugar, and 1 tablespoon oil and stir to combine.

2. Let sit until the mixture is foamy, about 5 minutes.

3. Add 1 1/2 cups of the flour and the salt, mixing by hand until it is all incorporated and the mixture is smooth.

4. Continue adding the flour, 1/4 cup at a time, working the dough after each addition, until all the flour is incorporated but the dough is still slightly sticky.

5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth but still slightly tacky, 3 to 5 minutes.

6. Oil a large mixing bowl with the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil.

7. Place the dough in the bowl and turn to oil all sides.

8. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set in a warm, draft-free place until nearly doubled in size, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

9. Use as directed.
