Pizza Dough

½ C butter, melted
1 ½ tsp salt
1/3 C sugar
2 C warm water
1 T yeast
½ C milk
6 C flour + a little extra to make dough soft

Garlic salt
Pizza cheese, sauce and toppings

Mix butter, salt, sugar, warm water and yeast, then milk. Add 3 cups of flour and mix with a wire whisk. Add the rest of the flour and fill a 1 C measuring cup with flour and place to the side. Knead the dough in the bowl, adding flour as needed until dough is not sticky anymore, but sill soft (adding too much flour will make the dough tough to work with). Place a towel over the bowl and let rise until double. Preheat oven to 425. Spread onto greased pans (2 10-inch or 2 9x13 pans). Put a few pats of butter on top, sprinkle with a little bit of garlic salt, and bake for 5-7 minutes. Top with your choice of toppings and bake until cheese is thoroughly melted.

Variation: Ham and Cheese Wraps
Roll out a little bit of dough (about ½ C) and place ham, cheese, and a little bit of garlic salt on half of it. Fold dough over and press edges with a fork. Bake at 425 for 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown. Brush butter over the top and serve hot. Calzones can be made the same way using pizza ingredients.
