Mrs. Arlana's Pizza Dough

Yep, another recipe from our friend Arlana over at Holding the Fortress...we use it a lot.  Really...A LOT!

First let me tell you why I like love it.  It only has 6 ingredients, one of which is water.  Loving it already, aren't you?!  Plus, you do not need to make it way ahead of time...a good thing for those of us who sometimes wait until the last minute to make a menu decision. (not naming know who you are)  If you have time to let it rise great, if not, no prob, Bob!  (Bob the Builder here)  Plus, with this recipe, I often make 1 bar pan sized pizza and freeze 1 or 2 personal sized ones for later.  After doing that several times we have a stack of pizzas in the freezer for a quick lunch or dinner.  (roll out to desired size and freeze each one between two pieces of wax or freezer paper.  To use, pop off paper, top with goodies and stick in the oven.  That easy!)

Kid's are happy- mom is happy! And THAT makes Dad happy!

Here goes:

Pizza Dough
1 TBSP yeast
1 tsp sugar
1 C water

Mix and let rest 5 minutes.
3 c flour (yes, we use our whole wheat)
2 TBSP oil
1 tsp garlic salt or powder

Mix and form into a ball.  Let rise 5 minutes to 2 hours
Bake pizzas @ 400 degrees 20-25 minutes.  Enjoy!

Visit back on Monday- I'll be sharing how I cut our grocery bill in half!
Happy Friday, friends!

  2. Sounds yummy! What type of oil do you use?

    1. We try to use olive oil, have cheated and used canola oil in a pinch! Let us know what you think!

  3. Thanks for reposting this. I have been wanting to try your pizza dough. I have a great recipe, but it takes forever in my bread machine. Miss you!
