I know I haven’t given you any recipes in the last few days. We have finally caught a break weather wise and the guys are getting weeks worth of work done in days. That means that the girls and I are picking up some of the slack around here and cooking anything other than the basics really hasn’t been a priority.
BUT, I’m off from the town job today and my calendar tells me it’s Pizza Party Day. So, I’m giving you a few different pizza dough recipes. Then we’ll get down to how we sometimes do pizza a little different.
Regular Pizza Dough
2 packets dry active yeast ( I actually buy mine in bulk in a jar, but it tells you how much to use on the side of the jar)
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup hot water
2 Tablespoons oil or melted butter
2 teaspoons salt
2 to 3 cups flour (enough to make a good dough)
Combine yeast, sugar and water. Allow it to rest about 5 minutes. Add in remaining ingredients and combine well. I like to use the KitchenAid Mixer to knead the dough a bit. Roll out and place on pizza pan. Add toppings and bake at 375 until crust is done.
Monster Pizza Dough
1 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons sugar
3 cups bread flour
3 Tablespoons powdered milk
1.5 teaspoons yeast
Place ingredients in order in the bread machine. Set on dough cycle. Go do dishes, laundry, book work, whatever you want. WARNING: This makes a BIG batch of dough – think 15 inch thick crust! I made this fairly regularly when our boys were younger. They’re the ones who decided to name it Monster Dough because it kept growing on us!
Keto pizza crust
6 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese (roughly 1 1/2 cups)
3 ounces almond flour (roughly 3/4 cup)
2 ounces cream cheese (4 tablespoons)
1 large egg
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 425 F. Prepare a baking sheet large enough for an 11-inch pizza, and line with parchment paper.
Now, how do we do pizza differently? Well, of course we use beef.
Supreme pizza – hamburger, sausage, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, peppers, mushrooms, onions, cheeses
Meat pizza – hamburger, sausage, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, regular bacon, cheeses
BBQ Beef Pizza – I use bbq sauce in place of marinara, leftover roast, caramelized onions, banana peppers, and mozzarella cheese
So, there you go. A whole bunch of choices for your next Pizza Party Day!
