Pizza Dough

6 cups flour
1 1/2 TBS yeast
1 1/2 TBS salt
1 TBS sugar
1/4 cup butter
3 cups water

Put 2 cups flour in a bowl with other dry ingredients. Mix in 1 1/2 cups water and put remaining 1 1/2 cups water in a sauce pan with butter and heat on low to melt the butter (you do not want it to boil). As soon as the butter is melted add it to the rest of the dough and mix in slowly. Then add the remaining flour until it is the consistency that you like, then need it for 2-3 minutes. Then let it rise for an hour. Punch down the dough and let rise for another hour. Quarter the dough and shape each ball into pizza crusts. Place on a greased pizza pan or divide and freeze. Add toppings (sauce, cheese, meat, veggies, etc.). Cook at 400-degrees for 20 minutes or until the bottom crust is golden brown. (This recipe will make four half meals or two full meals).
