Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe Stretching the Budget

Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe Stretching the Budget

2 cups warm water
2 Tbsp. yeast
2 tsp. sugar
2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. oil
5-6 cups flour

Combine water and yeast in a large bowl and let sit for 5 minutes. Stir in the sugar, salt, and oil. Add half the flour and mix. Add remaining flour and knead until smooth. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and put in a warm spot to rise for about half an hour. (On cold days, briefly warm your oven, then turn it off, and put the bowl in there. Leave the light bulb on to provide a bit of warmth.)

Punch the dough down and split into 2-3 pieces, depending on how big you want your pizza and how thick you like your crusts. Press onto a greased cookie sheet or pizza pan until the dough is about 1/4" thick (for thin crusts).

Spread your favorite sauce, sprinkle on grated mozzarella, add toppings, and bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.
