Quick pizza for dinner

Looking for a quick dinner to make on those busy days? How about pizza?

You might think that pizza would take a long time, but it doesn't. I make pizza from scratch every week with little hands-on time.

My secret is my bread machine. I make whole-wheat pizza dough in just a few minutes of work.  I put water, olive oil, salt, all-purpose and whole-wheat flours, and yeast into the pan, push a few buttons, and then go do other things while the breadmaker makes dough.  (Click here for the exact measurements.) 90 minutes later, I take the dough out, divide it in half, roll each half out, put the dough into two 9x13 pans, and bake in a preheated oven for 6 minutes.  Then I take out the pans, put on tomato sauce, cheese, and toppings, then bake for another 6 minutes.  Easy!

Too complicated for you?  Then start with a premade crust.  They can be purchased cheaply if bought on sale and you use coupons - buy a bunch and freeze them for future quick meals.

Here's a coupon for one pizza crust - Freschetta Artisan Crust:
