Homemade Pizza - under 40 minutes

It was late afternoon, super busy, The Littles underfoot and no plans yet for what I was going to make for dinner.
My 'daily bread' to the rescue!  

"My Daily Bread" is the bucket I keep in the refrigerator that I've placed 3 cups flour, 1-2 t sugar, 1/2 - 1 t yeast, 1 t salt and 1 1/2 - 2 c hot water.  I use this every day to make a new loaf of bread (or rolls, pizza, etc.)  As I pull it out each day to use it for bread or whatever, I immediately replace it with more, mix and put it back in the fridge.

  • I pulled out the dough, and grabbed a pan. 
  • Swirled a bit of olive oil from the pantry, and plopped about 3/4 of the daily bread dough into the pan. 
  • Using my fingers to poke and press, flattened it out with dimples to cover the bottom of the pan. 
  • Added some pizza sauce (homemade from the freezer, made from food storage items a week or two ago) and then topped with pepperoni slices from the freezer (when that is gone, will switch to the pepperoni bites I have in long term storage in a #10 can) and lastly, mozzarella. 

Oven was preheating to 425 degrees while I got out the bucket from the fridge, and pressed and poked the dough into the pan and then made the pizza.  Baked about 25-ish minutes at 425 or until golden brown.
