We make fresh pizza dough every week, and it is a quick and easy dinner that anyone with a bit of imagination can make.

This all-natural pizza dough is best if used within three days from the date of purchase. (If you cannot use it within three days, freeze it.) Keep refrigerated. Ingredients: unbleached wheat flour, water, salt, and yeast.

 Preparation: Preheat oven to 400-450. (If using pizza stone, place stone in oven and pre-heat for 30-45 minutes. If using cookie sheet, pre-heat sheet in oven for 10 minutes).

 To prepare pizza dough: Remove from refrigerator two hours prior to use (leave in plastic bag). When ready to make your pizza, remove from bag and roll or stretch to 12-14 inches in diameter. We suggest that you then place on a piece of parchment paper and put either on a pizza peel or upside down cookie sheet.

Top with your favorite sauce, toppings and cheese.

 If using stone, slide pizza (on parchment) onto stone; if you are using a cookie sheet slide pizza (on parchment) onto cookie sheet. Bake 10-15 minutes or until done to your liking (oven temperatures and conditions vary). Check bottom of pizza to determine doneness.

Freezing pizza dough: Freeze as soon as you can after purchase. To use, remove from freezer and defrost in refrigerator overnight. Follow directions for preparation.
