Sheet Pan Pizza

A few weeks ago we had a few extra kids in the house while some friends were visiting colleges with their oldest children.  I needed to figure out something for lunch that would feed a crowd and what makes a bunch of kids happier than pizza? So I decided to try out this new recipe from Your Homebased Mom and I got a thumbs up from everyone!

1 3/4 cups warm water
1/2 cup olive oil plus 1 tbsp
1 tbsp sugar
5 cups flour
4 1/2 tsp instant yeast
2 tsp salt
1 jar pizza sauce
3 cups cheese
plus toppings of your choice

In a bowl combine the warm water,1/4 cup olive oil and sugar.  In a stand mixer using a dough hook, combine the flour, yeast and salt. On medium speed add in the water mixture and mix for several minutes or until the dough is combined and smooth. Place in a greased bowl and let rise for 60-90 minutes. Use 1/4 cup of olive oil to coat the sheet pan. On a floured service roll out the dough and place onto the sheet pan then cover and let rise for 20 minutes. Place the oven rack to the lowest position and heat oven to 450. Uncover the dough and dent the dough with your finger. Bake in the oven for 7-9 minutes. Remove from oven and top with sauce, cheese and toppings then place back in the oven and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the crust is golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
