(NAPSA) - While this creation can serve as the main attraction at a kids party, it's versatile enough to serve as an easy appetizer for grown-up gatherings. It even tastes good cold, so you can make an extra pie (or two) and store it in the refrigerator. In addition, the Party Pizza recipe offers the time-saving benefit of Fleischmann's RapidRise Yeast, so it can be made from scratch in less than hour.
- 3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 package Fleischmann's RapidRise Yeast
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 cup water
- 2 tablespoons peanut oil
- 1-1/2 cups mozzarella and provolone cheese blend
- 1/2 cup grated fresh Romano cheese
- 1/2 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese
In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast and salt. Heat water and peanut oil
until very warm (120 to 130 F). Gradually stir into dry ingredients. Beat 2 minutes at medium
speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a stiff
dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
Divide dough in half; roll each into a 10 x 10 square. Place on greased baking sheet. Prick
dough randomly with fork; let rest 10 minutes.
Bake at 450 F for 8 minutes. Remove from sheets; place on wire cooling racks. Sprinkle with
cheeses. Bake on wire racks at 450 F for 8 to 10 minutes or until done. Cut into 2 1/2 x 2
1/2-inch squares; serve immediately.
