We ate one of our favorite dinners: our homemade pepperoni pizza. The dough is super easy to make and the kids love to add the toppings. David likes to roll out the dough and bake it for 3 minutes. He thinks the crust is a little more done when we bake it a bit before adding the goodies. Anyway, here is the dough recipe:
1 package rapid rise yeast
1 cup warm tap water
1 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. sea salt
3 cups flour
Mix all ingredients together (I cheat and use my Cuisinart with the dough blade). Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. Roll out dough (we roll our dough out onto a pizza stone). Bake in a 500 degree oven for 3 minutes. Add sauce (I make my own sauce so we just add what looks yummy!) and toppings. I usually throw some Italian seasonings and/or garlic on our cheese. Bake for an additional 12 minutes, or until cheese is bubbling and lightly browned. Enjoy!
We usually make cheese and/or pepperoni pizzas but we have made chicken ranch pizzas, too. For the sauce, mix 1/2 cup Ranch dressing, 1 3-oz. package cream cheese and a small amount of sauce (again, whatever you think looks yummy!). Top with chicken breast, red onion and Colby-jack cheese!
Love you Mom,
