What Do You Feed All Those Kids? Pizza!

It's often impossible to come up with a dinner that delights all.
Pizza night is an exception--everyone loves it because everyone creates their own!
It's messy.  But fun!  And there are lots of satisfied customers!
See that smile?  That is not fake!  That is the smile of a real mother who is real happy that everyone loves tonight's really good dinner! 
Pizza Dough Recipe:
1 1/3 C warm water
2 teaspoons sugar
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
4 C. flour
4 teaspoons yeast
Mix all ingredients together in a bread maker on dough setting or mix by hand.  Make sure water is warm, but not hot.  Let rise once.  Roll out on floured surface to make 2 pizza crusts or several small pizzas.  (Double, triple, or quintuple recipe as needed.)  Put on greased pizza pans or cookie sheets.  Cover rolled out crust with pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and toppings of choice.  Cook at 400-425 degrees for 10-18 minutes, checking for golden top and crust.  The more toppings you put on the longer it will take. 
Pizza Sauce Recipe:
8 oz can tomato sauce
1 teas. dried basil
1 teas. dried oregano
1 teas. sugar
1/2 teas. garlic powder
Combine and spread on rolled out pizza dough.  Double or triple as needed.
