Homemade Pizza

In our effort to save money, we have been making our own homemade pizza. The recipe that I use makes very yummy pizza and is quite simple. And as a bonus the girls love to help make it. For those that would like the recipe. Here it is:

In 3/4 cups warm water add 1 tsp of sugar and 2 tsp of yeast. Stir and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Then add 1/2 tsp of salt and 2 Tbs of olive oil; stir. Measure out 2 cups of flour in a bowl and stir in yeast mixture until it forms a ball of dough. Put in a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Let rise until double--1hour. When dough is ready, roll out onto pizza pan. Add sauce, cheese and toppings. Cook for 20-25 minutes at 375 degrees. Enjoy!!
