Go to meal: Pizza Friday

TGIF and it is time to unwind.  We make pizza Friday part of that often.   In the morning I make my crust so it is ready when I get home at night.  We use tomato paste or pizza sauce for the base.  I steam fresh garlic, spinach and mushrooms for toppings as well as raw green peppers, sliced tomato, onion, and jalapeno pepper.  Add that all together and bake at 475F for 15 minutes and enjoy.

Ingredients: 5 cups of flour-I use 4 cups whole wheat, 1 cup Millet, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 2 packs of yeast, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of sugar and 3 cups of water.

Mix the flour and salt add the olive oil.  Disolve the yeast in 3 cups of warm water and add the sugar.  Add to the flour mixture and knead until a soft dough forms.  You may need to add a little more flour so the dough ball is not wet.  Set aside with a towel over it for 3 hours and you are ready to go. This recipe makes 2 large pizzas.  I typically divide and freeze one dough ball to have for another time.   Roll out and add toppings  and bake.  Enjoy.
