Our menu plans and schedule are a little bit messed up right now. I’m a “stockpiler” ….. No, not like the kind you see on an episode of Hoarders! I believe in keeping a very well-stocked pantry. I hate the idea of not having whatever I need – and if I decide on a whim to make something, I don’t want to have to run to the store to get it. Since we decided that we are moving to Arizona, I have bought less and I am trying very hard to use what we already have. I really don’t want to move a bunch of food … and I hate even more, the idea of wasting it. I am conflicted ….. the stockpiler in me sees my supply getting low and my logic kicks in and says don’t you dare buy all that extra stuff. *sigh*
So you know where this is going, right? I believe you can put most anything on a pizza … in a bun … or in a tortilla – and have yourself a meal. I have a lot of flour (I buy 25 lbs. at a time!) and yeast (I buy 2 lbs. at a time – What can I say, I bake … a lot!) to use – so any guesses what we’re making?
If I let my family, they would probably eat pizza 2 or 3 times a week. No joke! We love coming up with new pizza ideas …. sometimes, the crazier, the better! I have searched high and low to find the “perfect” pizza crust …… Personally, I like Pizza Hut’s crust – it’s crisp, with just enough chew to it. I literally feel like I have tried every copy-cat recipe known to man – and about a year or two ago, I found “the one”. I refuse to use any other dough recipe. I’ve made a few adjustments, but otherwise, why mess with perfection?! Sometimes, I season it a bit differently with some Italian seasoning … but, this is by far (in my humble opinion), the best pizza dough EVER. It’s not exactly like Pizza Hut, but very close with the crispy crust and a good “chew”.
So, what are ya waiting for? Give it a try! You’ll be glad you did! 😉
