Home Made Pizza Dough

Well, it is Friday night, and we feel like pizza tonight. OK, well, I just don't feel like cooking. I think Pizza is a great way to get our kids to eat something a tiny bit healthy!
The Menu:
Home Made Pizza
The Original Recipe:
My Stepmother received this recipe from a friend who was in the Navy years ago.
Navy Pizza Dough
3 cups white flour
1 1/2 cup water
1 package dry active yeast
4 tbs. vegetable oil
Mix all ingredients together and let stand for 1 hour. Spread onto large cookie sheet, add your favorite toppings and bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until crust is done.
The Way I Made it My Own:
This is what I bake when I feel like baking.
Home Made Pizza Dough
Ingredients :
2 cups White flour
1/4cups Whole wheat flour
3/4 Wheat germ
2 Tbs milled flax seed
1 1/2 cup Water (more if needed)
1 pkg. Dry yeast
4 Tbs. Canola Oil
Italian seasonings
Onion and garlic powder

Mix all ingredients together. Let stand in a warm place for 1 hour to rise (I cover mine with a wet paper towel to keep it moist). Spread onto two 10x15 cookies sheets. Bake 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Take out and apply your favorite toppings. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

The way I am making it tonight:
and this is the way I make it when I really don't want to cook!

Our family likes
Mozzarella Cheese
Pizza sauce that comes in a blue can. I cannot think of the name of it. I would get up and look, only that I found out that we have none of that left and I have to use the GV brand instead, for tonight.
