2. Combine pizza crust mix and hot water in medium bowl; stir about 30 strokes with fork or until well blended. Shape dough into ball. (If dough is too sticky, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of flour.)

The pizza I made included Chef Boyardee pizza sauce with cheese, tomato & basil feta cheese, an unmeasured yet satisfying amount of roasted garlic, a sprinkle of bacon bits, salt, and pepper.Additional optional directions: rock out to Mumford & Sons and Zooey Deschanel while pizza is in the oven, do a finger swipe or five on the lid of the pizza sauce can, and contemplate baking caramel popcorn for dessert.
Recipe for caramel popcorn:I picked this recipe for caramel popcorn on allrecipes.com. (Link to recipe is "caramel popcorn".) The recipe makes 20 servings, which I reduced to 5 servings, so all ingredient measurements are different than the measurements listed on the original recipe. The next time I make this I will add cayenne pepper and almonds for a little kick.
Give a bowl to your roommate, prepare a bowl for yourself, kick back, and guiltlessly (is that a word?) watch instant queue documentaries on Netflix. I chose Dad's in Heaven with Nixon and No Impact Man. Random fact: I love documentaries! Some of my favorites are Babies and The September Issue.
So there you have it. Two easy and delicious recipes: perfect for a rainy Saturday stuck inside.
