Homemade Pizza Crust

Nana requested a recipe for pizza crust, so here it is.  This recipe is really very simple and doesn’t even take a lot of time to prepare… but I will admit that I have gotten lazy.  I usually use Mama Mary’s whole wheat and honey crust, which is already prepared, making things that much easier.  however making your own crust allows so many fun options – personal pizzas for the kids to prepare themselves, calzones, pizza pies… Have fun and be creative! Who doesn’t love pizza… enjoy!

When My husband worked for Papa John’s they came out with a Spinach Alfredo, Chicken, Tomato Pizza which we just loved so occasionally I make it instead of the “traditional” pizza that we usually make – so here’s the recipe.  Hope you enjoy it!
