Homemade Pizza Dough
On Sunday, Matt and I hired a teenage neighbor to watch our kids for an hour while we ran five miles to train for an October 10K. We joke that with our first child, we required our sitters to know CPR. With our second, we settled for childcare experience. And now, with our third, we ask, “Can you dial a phone?” And we prefer they call their parents for help, not us. It’s the only way we find each other in the chaos.
My plan for Sunday was to make homemade pizza dough. I had read in Experience Life magazine that our children had a lower life expectancy than us, partially due to their poor food habits, and I felt guilty for what I stored in my freezer. While I try not to serve processed food unless we’re in a rush, the truth is we’re often in a rush.
When we got home, I did a quick google for pizza dough and came up with Peter Reinhart’s Napoletana Pizza Dough Recipe. My 4yo pulled his chair up to the counter to work with me. The recipe made six balls of dough. Five I stuck in our freezer; one I left in our refrigerator. I used to think eating healthy costed more than buying prepackaged food. But as far as pizza goes, it’s much cheaper to make it.
