Isn’t it nice to have a standby recipe that you can whip together quickly and that you nearly always have all of the ingredients for, even when there is NOTHING in your kitchen? In that respect, this one goes in my mental recipe book right next to pasta marinara and grilled cheese, but has more than just a little appeal on my “I don’t want to leave the house again” whiny sort of evenings. Got an onion? Some flour? One stray piece of bacon? A somewhat bug-eaten sage plant somewhere in the yard? The tiniest bit of heavy cream left in the carton? Zero energy left for the day? This one’s for you!
Pizza dough is even easier than no-knead bread! Making it at home will save you a ton of money. Those pre-baked shells are tasteless and expensive, and the somewhat tastier ready-to-bake doughs are outrageously expensive. (Not to mention the cost of buying a delivered pizza… and who knows what’s really in that.) You’re only four basic ingredients, ten minutes of actual work, two dirty dishes, and one floury counter top away from having a homemade pizza crust anytime. Save that extra cash and tip your beertender!
