Let’s face it there’s only one type of food that is universally accepted and that is the always delicious all mighty concoction that is PIZZA! It is easily made into whatever you want and everyone has had a slice at least once in their life, so I decided this was the way to go for my new sites first CheapStir post.
Pizza dough is something most people would rather steer clear of making themselves but it’s totally easy and doesn’t have to be an exact science to come out delicious! Save your money and never have to tip the pizza delivery person again; in fact after you see just how frugal and easy it is to make your own pizza pies your bank account will increase and that’s a guarantee! Feel free to add any spices or favorite flavorings to make it even better.
Cheap Tasty At Home Pizza Dough($0.08)
Very easy and frugal pizza dough that tastes better than most out there.
$0.34 recipe...$0.08 per serving!
Add the yeast, sugar & water to a bowl and stir to mix. The yeast will activate after about 5 minutes or until you see the foam on top.
Next, mix your flour & salt into the yeast mixture and stir with a spoon. Then add your olive oil until it starts to clump together.
Grab enough flour to cover a small area where you will begin to knead your dough. Place the dough from your mixing bowl onto the flour covered area that you chose and form into a ball. Lightly cover all sides of dough with flour and also your hands as well. This will make the dough easy to work with. knead your (pizza) dough for 5-10 minutes just until the elasticity has diminished some. This reduces the effect of the yeast creating a crispy pizza crust when cooked(yup, you learned something lol) Form into a ball; cover lightly with olive oil and place in a bowl with a towel covering the top for an hour if you plan on cooking it the same day.
I like to cut up my dough into individual sized portions coat with a bit of olive oil then wrap them in plastic wrap and place them in my freezer so whenever I get the sudden urge to indulge I just take it out place it on the counter and wait an hour then have a pizza party with myself!
