Homemade Pizza Night!

We love pizza in our house. Only thing is Maggie does not like cheese. She used to. She used to LOVE cheese. But for some reason, the last couple months she protests and says she doesn't like it. So that makes pizza hard if you want to order it in. If she sees cheese on the pizza at all, she wont eat it. So, we have been making our own. Which is WAY more fun anyway!

I found a great recipe for dough on AllRecipes. It's super easy and super quick for those nights when you don't have a lot of time!

Pizza Dough

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 (.25 ounce) package
active dry yeast
2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 cup warm water (110
degrees F/45 degrees C)

Combine flour, salt, sugar, and yeast in a large bowl. Mix in oil and warm water. Spread out on a large pizza pan. Top as desired.
2. Bake at 375 degrees C (190 degrees C) for 20 to 25 minutes

A great thing about this dough is once you make it, it's done. You don't need to let it rise. You can if you want to, but you don't have to. We did let ours sit for about 20-30 minutes though.

Maggie had a great time putting on our homemade sauce.



She strategically placed her pepperoni, bell pepper and tomatoes.


And, the finished project


Daddy made a yummy calzone


Although we have a small kitchen we still had fun being together creating our meal. Everyone got to make their own meal their own way.
