Less is More - save on dinner

For those of us whose love language is food, it is a challenge to not see every meal as an expression of our affection for our family.  We gotta get over it. We really don't have to create an extravagantly expensive feast for dinner each night.  Rethink it as "love means not wasting the grocery money".

Here's a recipe for easy homemade pizza.  So you can have it other than Tuesdays.

Pizza dough

1/2 to 3/4 cup warm water
1 tbs dry yeast (I purchase mine in bulk at Sams.  Considerably less than the little packets from the grocery store.  You store it in the freezer and get out what you need each time.)
1 tsp sugar
2 cups flour
1 tbs olive or vegetable oil
1/2 tsp salt

Combine 1/4 cup of the water with the yeast and sugar.  Stir to dissolve and let stand for a few minutes while you put the flour, oil, and salt into a food processor.  Whirl it around for a few seconds.  Add the yeast mixture and process for a few more seconds.  Like about 10. Turn on the processor and gradually pour more water through the tube until the dough forms a moist ball.  Whirl it around a few more times - this is in lieu of kneading.
Put the dough ball onto a greased pizza pan. Cover it with plastic wrap and let it sit for about 10 minutes.  Work the dough around until it covers the pan, a higher lip on the edges.  Spread with pizza sauce (thinly - too much is yucky.  I can testify to this).  Add as much mozzarella cheese and whatever toppings you want.  Bake at 425 for about 15 minutes. 

This is really cheap (I estimate a cheese pizza costs about $2) and I promise promise promise that it is not hard.
