My super easy pizza dough.

Karina Alcala


We love pizza in our family but living in rural Missouri the closest pizza joint is 45 minutes away. So I got this recipe from a magazine article. I make pizza once a week and you can also make Calzones with this recipe. I make it by hand or you can do this with a food processor or mixer as well.
