If you give a mom a bread machine...

Have you ever wondered what happens when you decide to make your pizza dough in your bread machine but then leave the house and don't come back for 4 hours?

Well, I'll tell you what happens.

You will open your bread machine thinking "eh, it'll be fine" and will be practically knocked over by the smell of cheap wine.  And then you will think to yourself "I guess the yeast in pizza dough really is the same as the yeast in alcohol!"

Have you wonder what happens when you think that it will be o.k to use anyway and try to remove the dough from the breadmaker to salvage it?

Well, I'll tell you what happens.

The dough will be so sticky and gooey that it takes a 1/2 cup of flour just to unstick your fingers from themselves.

Have you ever wondered what happens when you decide you will just make another batch of pizza dough the old-fashioned way and open up your refrigerator and realize that you used your last tablespoon of yeast on the sticky drunken dough that is completely unsalvageable?

Well, I'll tell you what happens.

You immediately call Hungry Howies Pizza and order a "real pizza" as your kids like to call it making them extremely happy.  And then you will pay the bill and remember why you make homemade pizza in the first place.

Next time, wait and have this chaos happen on a Wednesday night. That's the night Hungry Howie's has their super special. It's only $4-5 per pizza!

LOL! I applaud your effort! A large portion of the population will not even attempt a recipe calling for yeast! Don't let it discourage you. Get right back up on the homemade pizza dough horse again next Friday!

I'll let you in on a little secret...Trader Joe's has excellent premade pizza dough. So yummy, you take credit for making it, and it's way cheaper than ordering;)

Oh goodness. Also, I'm jealous that you have a bread maker. Just sayin.
