During football season our meals revolve around the television set. A mid afternoon game calls for a sandwich and chips for lunch. An evening game calls for a big bowl of popcorn.

But what about when football and dinner time collide? (I’m looking at you 4:25 PM games). Ordering out for pizza is the obvious choice. However, the cost and processed ingredients make me think twice.

Making your own BBQ Chicken Pizza Recipe is easier than you might think. Here is my favorite game day version.

  8. In all of your pizza recipes for making the dough it calls for 2/3c warm water. In the directions for making the crust it’s add 1c of the warm water gradually adding remaining flour/water alternately a little at a time. How much water and flour should be added? I checked and every pizza recipe has the same amount and directions for preparing the dough for making the crust. Where does the directions call for the 1c water plus more. How can you get 1c warm water from 2/3c warm water? I want to make the Buffalo Chicken Pizza and the Jalapeno Popper Pizza!
