This has been a weekly tradition in my house as long as I can remember, and I couldn't possibly keep it to myself. I realize this thing requires a lot of equipment so it will probably only be doable by those of you who still live at home (or are cooking fanatics yourselves) but I highly encourage giving it a try.

That being said, since I'm pretty sure 99% of the sane people here like pizza, if you have the will (and therefore, a way) as well as the means (most importantly an oven, a pan, and probably a mixer with a bread hook, or the patience to knead your own dough) you should go for it. As with any recipe, make sure you've got alllllll the ingredients ready before you start (in other words, don't miss the post below this one.)

First things first... MAKING THE DOUGH:

1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons butter (or margarine if you're icky)
2 packages active dry yeast (if you've got a jar, there will be a package-to-teaspoons conversion on it)
1.5 cups warm water (get this later so it doesn't cool down, warm as in comfortably warm to the touch)
5-6 cups all-purpose flour (maybe a little bit more)

Step 1. Combine milk, sugar, salt, and sliced-up butter in something microwaveable. Nuke it until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves (about a minute on HI, you might need to stir and re-nuke for full dissolvation.)
Step 2. Warm the bowl you're going to make the dough in by running it under some warm water. Put the yeast in, and put in the measured warm water, mix and allow yeast to dissolve/culture (about 3-5 mins or until "murky and bubbly looking.")
Step 3. Add milk mixture after it has cooled to a lukewarm temperature. NOTE: If your milk/sugar/butter mixture has separated during this time, stir it and renuke it, then allow it to cool down again.
Step 3. Throw in 3-4 cups of flour and mix on a low speed (so you don't throw the flour everywhere) with the bread hook or whatever you've got. Continue adding flour 1/2 cup to 1 cup at a time (using even smaller additions toward the end) until the dough no longer sticks to the side of the mixing bowl/your hands. If you go above 8 cups, you've probably added too much (or you put too much liquid stuff in.)
Step 4. Once it's not sticking anymore, continue to knead it for a minute or two (if it starts sticking a bunch again, add a touch more flour and then do the minute of kneading again.)
Step 5. Preheat oven to "warm" (some low temp setting) for a minute or so and then turn it off. Cover mixing bowl with plastic wrap and put in oven. Allow dough to rise for about 45 mins, don't let it sit so long it gets dry to the touch.

OKAY, HARD PART'S DONE!! Now, on to Part Deux... MAKING THE PIZZA: (continued below...)

Dough (got it)
Pizza sauce (Classico is the tastiest, in my opinion, but any brand will work fine)
Cheese (mozarella, provologne, cheddar, whatever... shredded or sliced... 2 normal-sized bags of shredded should do it, about a pound for sliced since you'll have to get it from the deli counter)
Other assorted toppings of your choosing (pepperoni, onions, mushrooms, peppers, olives, etc. ... all optional)

Step 1. After dough has risen, take it out and get a flat (no walls) round pan (about 18" across) or square one if you've gotta, and give it a quick once-over with Pam or other non-stickifying cooking spray. Preheat oven to 375.
Step 2. Pam your hands up pretty good or rub some butter on them so the dough won't stick to them too much while you're handling it.
Step 3. Grab a hunk of dough (a ball about the size of a softball for the specified pan size, use more or less as necessitated by your available pan) and slap it down with a good "BAM!" for emphasis. The dough has now been made your bitch, and there is no reason why your pizza should not turn out magnificently.
Step 4. Use your Pam-ified/buttered hands to gently spread the dough out evenly into a circle or to otherwise cover your pan, leaving it slightly thicker at the very edge for the crust. Overall, it should be about 1/4" thick at most, thinner if you like crispier crusts. Also,if you make a hole in it, pinch it back together or otherwise fix it (you don't want your toppings searing to the pan.)
Step 5. Spread your sauce around the in-utero pizza leaving a little room around the edge (don't want your stuff dripping off into the oven, makes mommy mad!) I usually use 1.5 - 2 cups.
Step 6. Cover in cheese and other toppings. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes.

I realize this is quite an undertaking and I only find it easy cause I've been doing it since I was like... 1, so if you try it please let me know how it goes! Also, feel free to PM me with any questions/suggestions! Happy cooking!

In order to properly ring in a Jewish holiday, one must have:

LATKES (This makes a bunch. I found it enough to feed about 10 somewhat hungry individuals, it all depends on how big you make them)

6 Medium potatoes
1 Onion
2 Eggs
1/2 cup Flour
1 teaspoon Salt
Vegetable oil for frying

Pare and grate potatoes into a mixing bowl. It's a lot easier if you use a food processor after peeling, though. Squeeze out liquid. You won't be able to get it all, but do as much as you can. Use a towel to hold back the potatoes, so you can sop up some of the liquid from them as you're draining. Peel and grate the onion into potatoes. Add the eggs, flour, and salt and stir to make a smooth batter that will drop heavily from the spoon (ie keep their consistency). Pour the oil in a heavy frying pan using enough to cover the pancakes fully and heat. Drop the batter from a spoon into the hot oil, making pancakes about 3 inches wide. Fry over moderate heat until brown on the underside, turn to brown. Lift out and drain off excess fat on paper towel.

Make sure to use all the batter, because you can't save it. However, leftover cooked latkes can be frozen and baked at a later time. Just toss them in an oven preheated at 350F for about 5-10 minutes.

This is similar to Fievel's dish. I had learned of this Spanish dish through my brother. Feeds 1, or 2.
Tappas Patatas.

3 medium potatoes
1/4-1/3 cup of chopped onion
1/4th cup of shreadded cheese (or equiv to, I suggest provolone)
Salt to taste
4 eggs (scramble the livin hell out of them)
Cracked black pepper to taste.
Olvie, or vegetable oil

Take the potatoes and cube them into 1/4" Place them into large frying pan with the oil heated, allow about 5 min to pass, then add in the onion. Let the potatoes cook to the consistency desired. Salt and pepper to your desire. Add in the eggs evenly so that it covers all of the potatoes and onions. allow the bottom of it to solidify, then flip over. Next spread the cheese evenly wait for it to melt, and there you have it.

18 ounces (1 jar) of peanut butter

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over low heat. In a seperate bowl, mix everything else into a dough. Roll into medium sized balls. Using a fork, dip balls into chocolate until completely coated. Then, put the chocolate-covered balls on a cookie sheet and refrigerate for half an hour. Ta-da, no bake cookies.

An easy dish is one that I like to call Chicken Marinara. It basically began with me just pulling ingredients out that I had, but it turned out well, and I've made it lots of times now.

I basically cover some boneless, skinless chicken breasts in some seasoned flour, brown them in some olive oil in a skillet on the stove then I put them into a semi-deep oven pan and cover them in mozerella cheese and a marinara sauce. I use Prego for a jar. I've only made a sauce once, and the jar is just easier.

I then put them into an oven at around 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. That normally cooks them through. While those are in the oven, I boil some slightly salted water and cook some spaghetti or macaroni, whichever you feel like.

After the chicken and the pasta is done, you put the pasta on plates then cover each with a chicken breast and sauce. It goes well with a nice salad, either a ceaser or a spring green salad with a balsamic vinagrette dressing.
