$.46 Fresh Dough

Making dough for flatbread pizza or other dishes never seemed like something I would be able to do on my own. After doing some digging, I discovered that it looked pretty easy and decided to give it a go. I’ve now made this recipe four times and each time the quality of the end product improves. It is extremely simple and is something that can be done in about an hour and a half to two hours total from start to finish. I’ve only used the dough that this recipe creates to make pizza, but give it a go and use it for all of your recipes that call for dough!

2 1/2 Tsp Fleischmann’s Bread Machine Yeast ($.25)
2 1/4 Cup Bakers Corner All Purpose Flour ($.21)
1 Pinch Sugar
1/4 Tsp Salt
6 Tbsp Warm Water
1/2 Cup Warm Water
Pam or Another Cooking Spray


  • Combine the yeast and sugar in a medium sized mixing bowl. Pour 6 Tbsp of warm water into the yeast and sugar mixture, lightly stir to dissolve.
  • Add 1/4 Cup flour into the mixture and stir all of the current ingredients together. Give the mixture 30 minutes to set, when it starts to bubble it is ready for the next step.
  • Add 1/2 Cup warm water, 1/4 Tsp salt and 1 and 3/4 Cup flour to the current mixture. Stir it together until soft dough begins to form.
  • Take the remaining flour and spread it evenly on a piece of wax paper or large plate. Work the dough and flour together until the two are mixed and the dough is smooth. This usually takes about 4-5 minutes of working with the dough.
  • Coat a large mixing bowl with Pam. Place the dough in the bowl and spray the top of it with Pam until it is covered, flip it and repeat.
  • Cover the bowl and place it in your unheated oven or in another area that is free from drafts for 1 hour to 1 hour and fifteen minutes to allow the dough to rise and double in size.
  • Punch the dough down and place it in the refrigerator  for use within the next  few hours to 3 days or in a plastic freezer bag to store for up to 14 days.
You Will Know The Mixture Is Ready When It Starts To Bubble
Finished Product; the dough looks yellow because I used butter flavored spray.
