Easy Homemade Pizza Dough

I love pizza night! Traditionally a Friday tradition, but every once in awhile, you just need that pizza-pick-me-up mid-week. And if your’e like me, you’re a sucker for fresh bread — including fresh pizza. Well, good news — I’ve got a fail-proof, stand-by pizza dough recipe easy enough to make any day of the week. Even better news? This recipe makes enough dough for one family size (14 inches in diameter) or, you can make up to 5 individual size pizzas (8 inches in diameter). So whether you’re looking to feed the whole crew, or just you and your mate, you’ve got pizza night (or nightS) covered. 

Note about the Recipe: Dough can be refrigerated for up to 5 days.
