    This was Heritage Farm, I guess it's a Kroger brand. The cashier gave me funny looks I sent so many of these down the conveyor belt!:)

    I think Barney is keeping the lady with the price gun at krogers mighty satisfied. I cant hardly buy dog food for 39 cents a lb. Congratulations.

    I really like this recipe. I make it in the KitchenAid mixer in about 15 minutes start to finish!
    1. 6 cups all-purpose flour. (I like the high gluten flours but any will do)
    2. 2 cups of very hot tap water.
    3. 6 tsp. white sugar.
    4. 1 1/2 tsp. salt.
    5. 6 T. vegetable oil, or olive oil. I use olive oil.
    6. 1 tsp. yeast.

    Add all dry ingredients to the KitchenAid with dough hook attachment. Let the dry ingredients mix for a moment, then add the oil and hot water. Once the dough forms, let it knead for 6-8 minutes. Remove the dough, and form a ball with it, then cut it into 4 equal parts. I then place each part into an oiled, quart Ziploc bag, and then into the fridge. I generally shake the dough down, and burp the bag after a few hours. Then again the next day. After that, the dough just settles down and stops rising. The dough has a good flavor after 24 hours, but I like best after 48 hours.

    When I'm ready to use the dough, I put a bag on the counter until it rises to fill the bag, then just open the bag and let the dough slide on to the pizza pan. Then just push it out to fit the pan.

    I like to pour a tablespoon of oil around the rim of the pan after the crust is formed. I bake these pizzas on the bottom rack of a preheated, 475 degree oven. A simple pepperoni pizza is perfect in 15 minutes. A loaded pizza takes about 18 minutes.

    I made some as well. Of course i had to pay 1.99 a lb for my chicken. The meat lady at kroger was unresponsive to my advances so I paid full price.

    Leek and bacon soup. Use your favorite stock or broth. Wild mushrooms if you have 'em.
