Italian Cheesy Bread

I love getting this when we buy pizza, but it's so expensive.  This is a pretty good replacement and pretty easy.

Crust:


3/4 c warm water
1/2-1 T yeast
1.5 T sugar
2 c flour (ish)
1/2 t salt

Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water in a mixer.  Let stand 5 minutes, until frothy and bubbly.  (If it doesn't do this, try again because you killed the yeast).  Gradually add in salt and flour while mixing.  Add enough flour until dough pulls away from the sides and makes a ball around the hook.  Remove from bowl and dump onto a floured area.  Knead slightly for 3-5 mins.  Let rise, covered in a bowl for 15 mins.  Roll out to pizza size.  Let rise 15-20 minutes.  Then move on to the toppings.


Toppings:

1 pkg Italian Dressing (dry mix)
1/8 c oil
1 cap vinegar
1/8-1/4 c water
dash salt
1/8 t garlic salt
dash ground oregano
1/8 t dry thyme
dash pepper
1 c mozzarella cheese (grated)

Mix dry dressing mix with oil, vinegar and water.  This is about half of the liquid that the mix calls for.  Mix well and set aside.  In a bowl, mix salt, garlic salt, oregano, thyme and pepper.  With a brush spread a good amount of the dressing mix onto the crust until covered well.  (You will not use it all).  Sprinkle the spices evenly.  Spread cheese evenly over the top.

Cook at 450 for 10-14 minutes, until done.  Cut into 12 pieces and enjoy!
