Sweet mama pizza pie

My mom used to make this twice a week. It's mega-cheap & easy to make, the crust is thick and sweet!

1/2 tsp. honey (I usually pour more in for sweeter results)
1 c. HOT water
1 tbsp. of active dry yeast (about one package)
2 3/4 c. flour (add more if needed)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. olive oil
Add your own toppings to your liking (I use pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese)

Directions: - Warm up a bowl with hot water. - Mix together hot water and honey and yeast and let set for 5-10 minutes (make sure it bubbles...that means your yeast is still good!). - Add salt and olive oil. - Add half of the flour mix using the wire whip. - Mix in more flour with wooden spoon and kneed in the rest. - Kneed the dough until it feels like it is fighting back a little (but not so much that it's too stiff or too sticky). - Cover dough and let rise for 1/2 an hour. - Punch dough to let the air out. - Grease pan. - Add your toppings (your choice) - Put dough onto pan and cook at 425' for 8-10 minutes. - Needs to be brown on the bottom. - Put foil on top to keep cheese from burning. - Keep an eye on it...my oven takes anywhere from 10-30 minutes to cook when its temperamental...most ovens when preheated should take only 10 minutes though. - Dig in & Enjoy!
