Basic Pizza Crust Recipe

Photo   Melissa H./dumpstergourmet - all rights reserved
  • Serves: 2 - 12" Pizza Crusts
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 3 hours

From the cookbook 500 Pizzas and Flatbreads this crust is simple and delicious!


  • 1 tsp. Active Yeast
  • 1 1/4 cup Warm Water
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 3 cups of Flour


Classified as 'basic Neapolitan pizza crust', this recipe will give you enough for two 12-inch pizzas.

Begin by sprinkling 1 tsp. Active Yeast over 1 1/4 cup Warm Water. If you have a standing mixer, use the bowl for that otherwise you'll be doing it by hand in a large mixing bowl. Let water and yeast set for 5 minutes.

Add 1 tsp. Salt, then mix in a total of 3 cups of Flour, one cup at a time (it's recommended to use 2 cups bread flour and 1 cup all-purpose flour, I however, only used the latter). Kneed or mix with a dough hook once it begins to form, for about 5 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic.

Divide dough in half and place in separate, lightly oiled bowls. Roll dough around so as to transfer a bit of oil onto the dough ball itself.

Cover bowls with flour cloth or paper towels and allow to rise for 2-3 hours until dough has doubled in size.

When the rest of your pizza is ready to assemble, simply roll out dough, using additional flour as needed and prepare for your pizza-eating pleasure!

  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Salt

You can either throw these ingredients into your bread machine per bread machine directions (our machine requires wet ingredients on bottom). Or you can follow these simple directions:

Mix together 4 cups Flour, 2 1/2 tsp. Active Yeast, 1 tsp. Baking Powder, and 1 1/2 tsp. Salt. Add to these dry ingredients 2 Tbsp. Olive Oil and 1 1/2 cups Beer, mix together.

Turn out onto a floured surface and knead about 10-15 minutes.

Place in lightly greased bowl, cover and let rise until about doubled 2-3 hours. Proceed as with other crusts.

Aromatherapy Skin Care

The uses of aromatherapy are many. We use it to reduce stress, unwind our minds, invigorate our bodies, and general reduce the impact of physical and mental exertion on our bodies. Aromatherapy is mostly used to induce a feeling of well-being. Applied to our skin, aromatherapy has several ways that it can benefit us.

Facial aromatherapy is probably the first type of skin care that comes to mind for most people, simply because that's where most skin treatments are focused. This type of skin care consists of essential oils, lotions, and creams that cleanse and hydrate the skin, and open up pores.

Facial aromatherapy skin care has this in common with all other types of skin care regimes; you have to know what type of skin you have and select the products you use accordingly. There are four main types of skin; normal to combination, dry, oily and sensitive.

All types of aromatherapy consist of different types of essential oils that work harmoniously with your body's system to give you the desired results.

For example, using sage and orange peel extracts in a shower gel will not only help with refreshing your skin, it will also invigorate your senses as the hot shower releases the beautiful aromas in the oils.

Bergamot is helpful for skin conditions such as cold sores and chicken pox, particularly when united with eucalyptus oil. Black pepper fuels circulation, which makes it ideal when applied to skin bruises. Lavender oil is also useful for soothing minor cuts and burns in the skin.

When using aromatherapy oils, it is very important never to apply undiluted oils to your skin. Undiluted oils are generally very strong and can burn your skin or produce a severe rash, and that is the last thing you need to do to your skin. Always read the label carefully and follow the instructions for the best results.

Most department stores carry aromatherapy skin care products, usually in the cosmetic section. You can also find these products in niche stores that focus specifically on aromatic and/or natural products, such as the Body Shop, Sephora and Bath and Body Works.

Treating Dry Skin

You have most likely heard about collagen as it is often injected beneath the skin as filler. This is a type of mild cosmetic surgical procedure very similar to Botox and the collagen is utilized to fill in lines and easy out wrinkles for a much more youthful look.

Skin Care

Your newfound pores and skin, as you have discovered, has a whole new set of requirements. You now need to moisturize it to stop dry pores and skin, exfoliate it to stop dead skin and dirt develop up, tone it to make pores smaller, and let us not forget the pressing problem of fine traces that will soon begin to plague you. Unfortunately although there appears to be extremely little on the marketplace to help these in these years with their skin... till now.

The beneficial oils will be eliminated and your pores and skin will get exposed to bacterial infections by destroying your body's initial main line of protection with frequent bathing, particularly with hot drinking water.

Use the oatmeal scrub to thoroughly clean, dry skin and gently rub for a couple of minutes. Do not scrub vigorously as this can also promote oil manufacturing. Then rinse clean to total the natural pores and skin treatment schedule for oily pores and skin.

What Is Good For Dry Skin

The good news is that today, there are several types of treatments to choose from for your cracked, dry skin (xeroderma). Dry skin happens more often in the winter where the cold air outside and the hot air inside creates a low relative humidity. Xeroderma is a very common condition. Skin contains the hair follicles, sweat glands, sebaceous glands, apocrine glands and blood vessels. Skin consists of loose connective tissue and elastin. Skin also receives less blood flow and lower gland activity. The dermis is the layer of skin beneath the epidermis that consists of connective tissue and cushions the body from stress and strain. The blood vessels in the dermis provide nourishment and waste removal to its own cells as well as the epidermis. The dermis is structurally divided into two areas: a superficial area adjacent to the epidermis, called the papillary region, and a deep thicker area known as the reticular region. Symptoms most associated with Xeroderma are scaling (the visible peeling of the outer skin layer), itching, and cracks in the skin. Environmental factors such as exposure to sun, wind, cold, chemicals, or cosmetics, or excessive bathing with harsh soaps, can cause dry skin. Serious skin complications, including dry skin, can arise for people with diabetes. The skin loses moisture and may crack and peel, or become irritated and inflamed. Dry your skin gently and thoroughly, patting not rubbing. Apply moisturizers just after a bath or shower, when your skin is still damp. Avoid products that are alcohol-based. You want to work from the inside out too. Good skin is often a reflection of a good digestive system. Consider taking cod liver oil or fish oil supplements every day. The two most common, sluggish, digestion culprits that affect your skin are not enough water and not enough fiber. For an easy fiber boost, mix in two tablespoons of ground up flaxseeds in raw applesauce, from 2-3 apples, made in your food processor. If you also have eczema or acne, coconut oil will treat those skin conditions too. Coconut oil is very inexpensive, therefore, a good, cheap home remedy. Use coconut oil to remove your make-up at night, like I do; it leaves a fine layer of oil to nourish your skin all night long. Apply coconut oil to heal and soothe your skin. The skin must be regularly cleaned or it'll become cracked or inflamed. The skin supports its own ecosystems of microorganisms, including yeasts and bacteria, which cannot be removed by any amount of cleaning. Unclean skin favors the development of pathogenic organisms - the dead cells that continually slough off of the epidermis mix with the secretions of the sweat and sebaceous glands and the dust found on the skin to form a filthy layer on its surface. Go to your skin doctor if dryness and itching are preventing you from sleeping. See your doctor or naturopathic doctor if your skin doesn't improve in spite of your best efforts. And did I say to drink lots and lots of water every day!

Accutane And Marijuana

Patients that have been suffering from pain and the effects of treatments in Arizona were relieved to discover that "The Arizona Medical Marijuana Act" was passed. In March, the rules were released, and patients who require medical marijuana in Arizona can finally exhale; relief from the causes and symptoms of their pain and injuries can now be controlled and subdued legally, without any repercussion. To use cannabis for medical use, a marijuana Arizona specific license must be issued. From there, the patient has to follow the rules to ensure that this beneficial treatment continues to be available to residents. What Medical Conditions Qualify? The medical conditions that qualify will differ between states. It is recommended to check government websites, or to call a local authority. In Arizona, a variety of conditions are covered under the new act. Some of these include: AIDS HIV Cancer Glaucoma Hepatitis C ALS Crohn's Disease Alzheimer's Disease Multiple Sclerosis In addition to these conditions, Arizona also approves the use of medical marijuana for pain and debilitating conditions. This can be a result of seizures, injuries, nausea, or conditions which interfere with day-to-day activities and living. If a patient has one or more of these conditions, they are encouraged to apply for a medical marijuana license, so that he or she will be legally entitled to treat their pain with cannabis. What are the Rules? With a medical marijuana card to legally buy and keep cannabis, patients are permitted to have up to two and a half ounces on their person, or twelve plants. With a license, employers will not be allowed to penalize patients for consuming medical marijuana, as long as it does not take place on the premise. Patients must keep their medical marijuana use strictly out of plain view. Medical marijuana can be used at dispensaries and inside the home. Patients can grow their own plants if a dispensary is not located within 25 miles from their home. How do I apply for a Medical Marijuana License? It's very easy to apply for a medical marijuana card if the applicant visits a licensing center. A local licensing center is extremely beneficial because they have assisted thousands of patients to obtain their cards. The clinics have doctors on site who are marijuana friendly, and if a patient has a legitimate cause for using cannabis medically, the doctors at the clinic will not hesitate to make or confirm a diagnosis. In addition to compassionate staff, a licensing company can help to explain the paperwork involved, and assist patients through the process. This fast tracks applications, for a quick and error-free approval rate. To obtain a medical marijuana card, contact a licensing company, and make an initial appointment for an assessment. Cannalicense provides medical marijuana cards to Arizona and Colorado. The licensing company has doctors on staff, and a friendly base of customer service representatives, to assist patients with the application process. For more information visit, Cannalicense.

Where Is the White Elephant Sale?

The Oakland Museum holds the sale in a warehouse at 333 Lancaster St., Oakland (along the Oakland Estuary, right across the Fruitvale Bridge from Alameda). The Estuary is a beautiful place to sit and take a break from shopping.... bring a picnic, or buy something from the food vendors that set up outside.

How The Sale Works...

Cash, Check or Charge....

You can use cash, check or charge to pay for your treasures... But there is a system. You have to pay for your purchase in each department, within the department.
In each department you have your purchases written up by a volunteer. The item will be sealed in a bag... and it will be tagged.
Each department has a cashier, and your items will be paid for before you leave the department.

Here are some more tips...

  • Cash- Cash is Cash.... you pay cash to the department cashier, you get your change... and off you go.
  • Credit Card- If you are paying by credit card, you have to take an extra step. Get your purchase written up by the volunteer... it will be sealed in a bag (or box) and tagged with your name and the dollar amount. You will then leave your purchase in the department (there is a guarded area set aside in each department). Take your half of the receipt to the Warehouse cashiers... pay by credit card... you will get your receipt stamped... and then you can collect your purchases.
    If you are purchasing from several departments, you can collect all of your slips and pay for them all at once.
  • Check- Much like cash, if you want, you can write a check in each department... Now, if you want to write ONE check for ALL of your purchases, it works much like credit cards. Tell the volunteer that you want to pay at the main cashier, and they will hold your purchases until you return with a stamped receipt.

Fun and Friendly Volunteers

We Can Always Use More Hands...

The White Elephant Sale Volunteers are a fun, friendly and helpful group. Most volunteers work in and area that they have some expertise in.... this is the Children's Book gang (children's librarians, teachers... and a kid).

The volunteers organize and price the items they have for sale based on guidelines set within each department (and with the help of the internet). Some volunteers are experts in their field (jewelers, artists, antique dealers), and properly appraise the objects with a fair value below market price.

If you would like to volunteer too, we'd love to have you. (Be aware that this is not a license to shop!) There are many departments to choose from, you are certain to find one that suits you.

Some Rules and Tips For Attending the White Elephant Sale

I've either attended or worked at the White Elephant Sale for a few years now... let me give you a few tips and hints to help you get through the sale in one piece.
  • The Early Shopper Gets the Worm- It's true, the first people through the door often head straight for the special collectibles. This doesn't mean you have to get there at 4am. There are loads of wonderful items to buy, no matter what time you show up.
  • Parking Can Be A Pain- Because the Warehouse is near the Estuary in a crowded area, parking is limited. You can take BART to the Fruitvale station (a shuttle will take you the rest of the way). You can park by the railroad tracks along Fruitvale. Carpooling is best.
  • No Eating or Drinking in the Building- You can't bring food or drink in to the Warehouse... don't even try. Food vendors set up outside the sale (hot dogs, burgers, the Tamale Lady). There are restaurants across the estuary (there is a bridge), kind of a medium walk.
  • No Strollers- I know it's a hassle, but you will either have to carry the child, or better yet, leave it at home. (Believe me.... both of you will have more fun)
  • No Backpacks, Wagons or other Carriers You will have to check them in at a bag check area, so don't bother arguing.
  • Purchase Check- There is a check area for you to drop off your purchases until you are all done shopping (things can get heavy.)
  • Teamwork- When it's time to go, having a partner helps. One of you goes to get the car while the other waits near the exit with your purchases.
    If you buy furniture, you have a few days to come and get it.

What Can You Donate to the White Elephant Sale?

One Person's Trash is Another Person's Treasure

While it seems like the Oakland Museum White Elephant Sale accepts EVERYTHING (walk around the warehouse, you will see what I mean....) there are restrictions. Most are common sense.

Worn or used things that are still usable are perfect. (Even if they are tremendously dated....)

If it's broken, filthy, moldy and just basically TRASH... then dispose of it appropriately.

She bought it for 0

Her mother brought a framed photo in for the clothing department. It hangs above the bridal gowns, a reminder that beauty doesn't have to be expensive.

The Oakland Museum Woman's Board

Bit of History....

For over 50 years the Oakland Museum Woman's Board has been organizing the annual White Elephant Sale. It started as a little parking lot sale (more of a glorified garage sale) ... but then it grew. The sale was moved to a few different locations in Oakland, always growing.
Now in a 96,000 square foot warehouse on Lancaster Street, the sale brings in over a million dollars a year to support programs and exhibits for the Oakland Museum of California.
