Homemade Pizza – Pizza Dough Recipe
Update Make Your Own Pizza Night with Homemade Dough Recipe
We have been making our own dough now for several years. Not only is it easy to make, but it is also inexpensive, and you know exactly what is in it. Another great thing about this dough is that it is easy to separate into smaller, individual pizzas. Often, I make the pizza dough a few hours ahead of time. Then, for dinner, the whole family gets to make their own pizza. We can put whatever we want on our own pizza and everyone ends up happy!
We have been making pizza at home for a while. First, we started out with Boboli crust. Then, we moved on to using frozen dough from H-E-B. Sometimes though, when we use frozen dough it doesn’t roll out easily or parts of the dough have freezer burn.
So, I searched for an easy pizza dough recipe. I found CopyKat Recipe’s post, How to make Pizza Dough, and mostly used that recipe today. The only thing different I did was add about 1/2 teaspoon of sugar.
I used my food processor and then let the dough rise for a few hours upstairs in the warmest part of the house.
My husband is the pizza guy. Being from the northeast, he’s kind of picky about his pizza. He is the one that usually makes the pizza in our house.
My husband said the dough was a little sticky, but was easily able to roll it out. It was a lot better than thawed pizza dough.
And the final result…yum. The kids liked it. The husband liked it. I liked it. Yea! It was a family hit. It tasted like the frozen dough only better, fresher.
