When commenting on other blogs, I refer to myself as the Clueless Nut. It’s easier to type and uh, fitting.
Most of my cooking is either done with my boyfriend, for my boyfriend, or guided by his instructions.
Serves: 4 (2 pieces each)
1 packet active dry yeast
3/4 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup warm water
2 cups of 100% Whole Wheat Flour (or flour of choice)
2 Tablespoon olive oil
In a medium bowl, combine yeast, sugar, and salt. Mix until first three ingredients are dissolved. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine flour and olive oil. Add the water/yeast mixture and mix just until combined.
Cover dough mixture. Allow it to rise for 1-2 hours.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Knead by hands.
Shape the dough with a rolling pin. Place on lightly greased pizza pan.
Top with desired toppings.
Cook for 12-15 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before cutting.
Topping Ingredients (from last night):
About 2 Tablespoons of pesto (used as a base)
1 tomato, sliced
1 cup spinach, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
1/4 cup mozzarella
2 T, or more feta cheese
Basil and herb goat cheese, crumbled
A sprinkle of quality grated parmesan, added in the last 5 min. of cooking
Wash and prepare (chop, slice, crumble) ingredients accordingly.
Spread pesto. Add chopped and sliced vegetables. Top with mozzarella, feta, then goat cheese. In the last 5 minutes of cooking, lightly sprinkle quality grated parmesan.
Thankfully, I re-heated pizza again on a Tuesday morning. I jumped on the couch, trying to control the remote with a piece of
greasy pizza in one hand and my make-up remover in the other.
