For a number of years Friday or Saturday night is ‘game night or Madden night’ at our place. Oftentimes I try to fix our supper with the mindset of “I need to make extra” just in case our friends were hungry or they wanted a snack while playing games.
This past Friday, the girls and I made some pizzas.
I kick myself so much when I just gather the things to make pizza because it is SO good and so easy… but yet, I still succumb to the $5 pizza deal from time to time. Ack.
Everyone in our house loves to knead dough… yet another reason I need to keep my head on straight and keep on schedule and budget and we won’t even have to worry about that $5 temptation.
We ended up making one cheese and one BBQ.
YUM oh YUM!!!
The bbq was SOOOO good.
I sautéed some onions with a few bacon pieces and then made my bbq sauce with the fat and added the bacon and onions back in when my sauce had cooked for a while.
It was delicious!
For the dough, it was a simple dough that we use pretty much every time we make pizza.
2 1/2 cup flour (I used 1 1/2 cup wheat & 1 cup white)
1 cup warm water
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 Tablespoon coconut oil or lard
1 Tablespoon yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Add water and oil. Mix well.
Knead 5 minutes
Roll out into pizza crust, making it as thin or thick as you wish.
Bake at 400* for 10 minutes
(Makes 1 large crust)
Add your toppings and bake til cheese is melty and delicious!
So the next time you are planning out your menu… consider homemade pizza.
You may never darken the drive thru again.
Well, let’s be honest, you probably will (and I will too), but it won’t be as often. 😉
