Makes:  4-6 Servings

Total Time:  25 min.



  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 medium green pepper, diced
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in water; let stand for 6 minutes. Add oil and salt. Stir in flour, a cup at a time, to form a soft dough. Turn onto floured board; knead until smooth and elastic, about 3-4 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 40 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, brown beef and onion; drain. Punch down dough; divide in half. Press each into a greased 12-in. pizza pan. Combine the tomato sauce, oregano, and basil; spread over each crust. Top with beef mixture, green pepper, and cheese. Bake at 400° for 22-26 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Yield: 2 pizzas (4-6 servings).
