Fast Awesome Pizza Dough

Every Friday night at the Farrer residence (or at our house, depending on if we invite them to share their tradition at our house), there is a pizza night tradition. Or calzone, depending on the mood we're in. They make this pizza dough every time. Why you ask? It's so fast. Seriously rises in 20-30 minutes. Also, it's like heaven in dough form. I'm actually not sure where they got it, but I fetchin love it (yes I said fetchin).

Fast Awesome Pizza Dough
3 cup warm water
2 tablespoon yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoon powdered milk
1 teaspoon salt
6-8 cup flour

Mix water, yeast and sugar. Add 3 cups flour and milk. Add salt and any herbs then 2 cups flour. Add remaining flour until not sticky. Knead 5-10 minutes. Raise 20 minutes.
Flatten {pretty thin, it rises some more while cooking}, top with sauce and toppings.
Bake at 400 degrees for 18 mins.

Note: If you are doing calzones, only put toppings on half, then fold crust over and pinch sides together. Brush with melted butter and garlic powder mixed {makes it too delicious!}

I got the recipe from a friend who said it was her family's go-to recipe growing up. I asked for it after I saw her make it during a short break during her 4 year old's birthday party. ANY recipe that you can make during that kind of chaos is worth asking for!
