Home-Made Pizza Dough

Did you know that Pizza is the number one favorite food in America?  You can never go wrong by serving pizza to a whole crowd of picky eaters!  It is so easy to make and you can freeze portion sizes for future use. This same recipe can be used for bread and rolls.  Enjoy!

    I love making my own pizza! I live miles from a pizza place, so if I want some I have to make it. Gonna give this one a try.

      Once you make your own and get the hang of it, you’ll never do take-out again! We make up batches of dough in advance so we never run out!

      I love home made pizza. This recipe is from my mother and it brings back memories of when we were kids and would do pizza night!
