Amy at Park City Girl is hosting a Family Dinner Swap!
What a great idea!!
Normally I would post a recipe for soup because that is my favorite all time food, however, I now have a close second!
Love it, and with this easy recipe you will love it too!
I have used my favorite cook book, Honest Pretzels and yes, it is a children’s cookbook that I had hoped my eldest daughter would use, so far it is only me using it. Quite honestly, I am fine with that because I just love this cookbook!
Ok, the recipe:
Make your dough:
1 cup lukewarm water,
1 tsp yeast
mix in a large bowl and let it sit for 5 minutes,
then add 1 tbsp olive oil
then add 2 1/2 cups flour, * I used half white, half whole wheat
1 tsp salt
Mix together by whisk at first, then your hand. Then you knead your dough for about 5 minutes.
Now, clean your bowl and then put 1 tbsp of olive oil into your cleaned bowl. Cover and let rise for about 1 hour.
*I will make my dough in the morning, and let it rise all day until I am ready to use for supper. It works great that way.
You also will want to go ahead and sprinkle either corn meal or I use wheat bran to coat the baking pan.
After your dough has risen, you spread it out on a baking sheet. Cook at 450 degrees for 8 minutes, then take it out and top with your choice of toppings..
Then return to the oven and bake for an additional 6-8 minutes, or until the cheese is golden and bubbly!
I have done basil/olive oil, red sauce, I have even just used olive oil for a base. We’ve used leftover chicken, pepperoni, sausage, and a variety of different cheeses. There is no way to mess this up! So easy, and so so good!
This pizza is so much better than store-bought, even better then a restaurant. No lie. It is hearty and delicious! What is also great is that most likely you will have the simple ingredients on hand, and this is a great way to use up leftovers!
Now go try it & let me know if you like it!
~notice the thumbs up going on there?!? She is my toughest critic!
Big thank you to Amy for hosting this great recipe swap, I am always in need of new ideas for supper!
