Thrifty Living: Homemade Friday Night Pizza Night


Alright first of all how about a big WAHOO for Fridays! I love Fridays!
I know it is only Tuesday, but oh boy of I love TGIF!
Fridays are the start of the weekend. The start of two whole days where we have no homeschool lessons, I can craft it up like nobody's business, and we get to enjoy a family pizza and movie night.

Seriously my favorite day of the week!

So let me tell how we make our Friday night pizza night homemade.

Now first of all I understand how easy it is to go down to Little Caesars and get a $5 pizza. I mean I used to be supporting them every now and then too, but not anymore. Remember I am having a Homemade Year, which means no takeout.

Well this is how we do Friday night Pizza night on the homemade side.

I found this AMAZING recipe a few weeks ago and have been using it. It was from HERE.
I changed mine up a bit and everyone loves it!
There is no rise time, which makes having a homemade pizza in under 30 minutes actually doable.
How awesome is that?


Here is my Pizza crust recipe:
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 cup warm water 
  • 4 tbl Italian Seasonings
Put all ingredients in your mixer and mix until a soft dough ball forms.
If your dough is too sticky add a bit more flour.

Put your mixer on level 2 and let your dough knead for 5 minutes.

While the mixer is doing its magic I get out my toppings. I sometimes use store bought sauce and sometimes I make it. Depends on my mood.

We love a supreme pizza. So I brown a pound of sausage and only use part.
I save the rest for other pizza nights. Cooked meat freezes great!
Quick to thaw too. Just run under warm water. Defrost in just a few minutes.

Roll your dough out onto your pizza pan. I use a round pan with holes on the bottom.

Add toppings like green bell peppers, fresh tomatoes, purple onions, pepperoni, sausage, mozzarella cheese.

Have fun with it!

Layer on your toppings and then bake for 20-25 minutes @ 375'

Brush crust with olive oil and let cool for a few minutes before cutting.

Serve it up and enjoy.


We have been enjoying this pizza while watching these few movies lately.
