Last minute pizza dough

I am a pizza lover, but sometime I get that "pizza crave" a little too late in the day. 
So what does this (frugal) pizza lover do?
No, not ordering delivery pizza.
I make this super quick last minute pizza dough.
I prepare the dough mixing all the ingredients below,
...and I double it.
Let it "rest" while I get together all the other ingredients. 

shred the mozzarella cheese,
and get the other toppings out of the fridge.

Roll it out,

put the sauce, cheese and toppings on.
***I used leftover grilled asparagus, boiled eggs and fresh mozzarella***

Bake at 400-450° (according to your oven) for about 20 minutes.
If I do get my acts together earlier in the day...
I always prefer to make my 
pizza dough that require rising.
But for a last minute pizza craving, 
this does a wonderful job.

Stay Frugal,
Daniela

ps. one homemade pizza will cost as little as $2 
(or more, depending on your topping selection)

Ok, I'm going to have to start making pizza for myself instead of waiting on someone to be here to share it with! I love it and want to try this quick crust as well as your original!

You just gave me the perfect excuse to procrastinate on making my pizza dough. I usually make mine in the morning, but some days, it seems so hard to get the motivation to get it done...now, when I feel a bit lazy, I have your recipe to fall back on. Thanks!

Oh yeah! That's my problem - I remember too late in the day to let it rise and I love making my own. Yay, now I can at the last minute. Thanks!

I've never seen a pizza with asparagus and eggs on top, but I have to say it looks really good! I'm sure it's more healthy that way too.

Ahh, an Italian after my own heart! (I'm Italian, but I don't cook, and that pizza looks amazing! :)

Dearest Daniela,
Super recipe; even better than Trader Joe's $ 1.19 whole wheat ready pizza dough. This is simple and yours looks yummy.
Hugs to you,
Mariette

I just came from visiting your Etsy shop after seeing the great linens on Creating a Life.

Wonderful stuff!

I am being good until the end of the month because I did a bit of overspending over spring break. But, I will be visiting the shop in a few weeks.

Now, that looks like a gourmet pizza! I have never thought to put hard boiled eggs on a pizza. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
