It's a well known fact that a college staple (heck, the staple to any fulfilling life) is pizza. There aren't many foods that will arrive on your doorstep for cheap, that satisfy some major food groups (tomato sauce counts as a fruit right?!) and is delicious to boot. But what if you're sick of chain options - um, potentially frozen, no thanks. Or what if you're bored with classic cheese, or are fighting with your fellow pizza-lovers about toppings? The solution: a homemade option, two ingredient pizza dough!

Making pizza on my own has always seemed daunting to me - I can't toss dough in the air, roll it out just right, and it just seems so time consuming! Half of the time, the dough takes hours to rise or bakes under the toppings to become soggy (this one is cooked before toppings!). Lucky for me, this recipe knocks those issues out of the park. This two ingredient pizza dough is so easy, I made it with a seven year old with major success. It's healthy, delicious, and cheap. There's something so satisfying about making something from scratch, and it gives you the freedom to top it with whatever you, or anyone else wants, as the portions are automatically four individual pizza bases. And don't worry, if you can't think of anything besides cheese or pepperoni, I've got some out of the box ideas for ya. So, what's stopping you?
