Everyday Pizza

I love, love, love pizza!
Homemade pizza is the best, but when I'm working I want something easy to grab and heat.
So, I buy frozen pizza, but I'm on a spending diet.
-I haven't bought groceries (excluding milk) in over 2 months!-
This is my recipe for Everyday Pizza.
Make up a bunch and freeze them or have a party and eat them all.
Everyday Pizza
1 egg
1 cup water
2 1/2 cup flour (plus 1/2 to 1 cup more - see recipe)
3/4 cup white or yellow corn meal
2 Tbs olive oil
2 tsp yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt

Add all ingredients to your mixer.
Mix together.
If you are making this in the winter you will not need to add the extra flour, because the air in your home is dry.
However, if you are making this in the summer or in humid conditions you will
need to add the extra flour.
Slowly add 1 Tbs of the extra flour until you have a moist, but cohesive ball that pulls away from the wall of the mixer bowel.

Your dough should look like this.
It will be quite sticky.

Scrape the dough from your mixer and with wet hands make the dough into a ball.
Place the dough ball into a greased bowl.
Cover the bowl and place it in a warm place.
Let it rise for 30 mins.

After it rises it will look like this.
Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees.

With wet hands pull the dough apart into 6 separate balls.
Place the dough balls on your greased or silpat covered baking pan.
Let the dough rest for 10 mins.

With wet hands shape/flatten the dough into pizza shape.

Spread 1/4 cup pizza sauce/tomato paste into the center of each pizza.

Bake pizza crusts for 15 mins.
Remove from oven.
Now 2 choices:
A. Let cool, wrap in foil and freeze.
B. Add cheese, spices and toppings.
Return to the oven and cook an additional 15 mins.

To cook frozen Everyday Pizzas -
Add toppings and cheese (you can also add these before freezing).
Bake at 400-425 degrees for 10 -15 mins
until cheese is bubbly.
