This pizza recipe is one of the best of Lagasse and is appropriate for kids. It is called Big Boy Pizza. For it, you need to make a basic pizza dough in the first place. You need a package of active dry yeast, one cup of warm water, 3 cups of regular flour and a little extra for kneading, 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and 1 and a half teaspoon of salt. In the beginning, you will need a large mixing bowl to place the yeast. Add the water and stir with a wood spoon until the yeast is dissolved.
When bubbles will appear at the surface, you will know that it is ready. Add the flour, one teaspoon of the oil and all the salt and stir well. When the dough comes together, you need to take it out of the bowl and knead it on the table until it will be elastic. This will take you about 5 minutes. Take a clean bowl and grease it with a spoon of oil. Put the dough in the bowl and cover it. Let it in a warm place and let it grow for about 2 hourse.
Preheat the oven and split the dough in two sheets. Use the remaining oil and grease them both. Take one at a time and push them out with the fingertips. You will have two pizzas from which you could make what pizza you like best. Our suggestion is to try Margherita, which is the basic pizza, with tomato sauce, basil and cheese or Quatro Formaggi, which is made with four different kind of cheeses. Simply choose what you child likes best and bake it for him. This recipe of Emeril Lagasse is very simple and at the same time it is delicious.
