What’s in my freezer? Pizza dough

I have a somewhat embarrassing confession to make: my children prefer my husband’s pizza dough recipe to mine!  They are devoted thin-crusted folk, while mine produces a thick crust.  Well, I haven’t given up yet- here are both recipes- let the readers decide!

This thick-crust recipe has produced countless numbers of pizzas for kibbutz children where we used to live.  It is therefore as durable and foolproof as a recipe can be.

Ingredients

5 cups flour

4 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons sugar

4 teaspoons oil

2 cups warm milk (warm works best- can use water if needed)

8 teaspoons dried yeast

Directions

Mix it all together.  Knead.  When the dough is smooth and unified, it can be frozen.

*Making pizza is one of the greatest activities to do with kids young and old- plus you don’t have make dinner afterwards!  Make faces or write messages with olives, peppers, corn, onion and tomatoes.    Regarding the cheese- check out aliyah tip #3.  My favorite cheese to use is Tara brand gvina tzehuba-
