    • MYO Fresh Pizza Dough

      MYO Pizza Pizza is one of America's beloved dishes. It's generally the Choice meal for those in a hurry, the least likely meal to be rejected by hungry kids and one of the cheapest to feed an entire family. But, for many families, pizza arrives via a knock at the door and hidden within a cardboard box. Here is a simple, dirt cheap, yet delicious pizza dough recipe for making pizza at home . . .

      You'll Need:
      2 1/2 c. Flour
      2 T. Oil (olive or vegetable oil)
      1 c. Warm water 100-105F
      1 tsp Sugar
      1 tsp salt
      2 1/4 tsp Active yeast

      In a medium size mixing bowl mix flour, sugar and salt until well combined. Pour half of the flour mixture into a bowl, add yeast, stirring well. To the yeast/flour mix, add the warm water and oil, mixing well until very smooth, add remaining flour/sugar/salt mixture until fully incorporated. Cover with a clean cloth and let rest 5 minutes.homemade pizza dough

      To make a traditional pizza you'll need mozzarella cheese, 1 8 oz can tomato sauce, 1 tsp Italian seasoning, 1 tsp minced garlic. Combine the garlic, Italian seasoning and tomato sauce together.

      Lightly oil or flour your hands and spread the pizza dough onto a pizza pan that has been dusted lightly with cornmeal.

      Apply the sauce, add a layer of chopped pepperoni or sausage, peppers, onions, or whatever toppings your family desires. Add a layer of mozzarella cheese, add additional toppings as desired.

      This truly is a matter of personal preference. In the northeast folks generally prefer their toppings on TOP of their cheese. In the Midwest, the toppings are often UNDER the cheese. This is strictly a regional thing- and it doesn't matter where you put them!

      Bake your Pizza for 16-18 minutes at 400F If you like really thick crust you can double the dough recipe and extend the baking time by 5 minutes.

        Can this dough be made ahead and frozen?

        This is pretty much the recipe I use, and it's always welcome by the kids in my house. I keep a container of spaghetti sauce in the frig for the toddler's "noodles", so I usually use some of that instead of tomato sauce. Pizza is also a great way to get rid of leftover single pieces of chicken, scoops of BBQ pork, spinach.... all hidden in cheese.

        YES! I frequently freeze mine, and as long as I let it thoroughly thaw out and come to room temp it comes out great. Just put the dough in a ziplock bag and it is usually good for 3 months.
