Who does not like pizza? Only problem when you go toeat it, you come home feeling like you ate a bucket of dough and then want to head to the couch and fall into a "pizza coma". Not to mention, in order to get a "good pizza" you need to go a tad pricey, but then when you order it and see what is on it for the price, you think hmmmm, really? Well I do anyway. Let me back up, first of all I don't order out pizza, for the kids yes. Second, I shop and have the house stocked with cheese and tons of healthy food and great assortment of veggies. So why on earth do I want to pay for what I can make at home, and while at home I control what goes into the pizza. I can control the cal count, the sodium, the oil, etc. and for a lot less.
We already ventured with the Cauliflower Pizza Crust, which was a huge hit and will be a repeat in our kitchen again. So thanks to Bon Appetit and their wonderful recipes, we stumbled upon the No-Knead Pizza Dough. What? This is too good to be true. Going through the recipe and list of ingredients all I could think was "how fun is this going to be"? The kids and hubby will love this. I did however modify the dough. Instead of "all purpose flour", I opted for whole wheat and Semolina flour, just did half of each. I also went less on the salt.
The only item I needed was the active dry yeast. Which I thought do I really need that, it is only 1/2 tsp. how much of a difference can it make? After calling hubby at work and asking that (apparently hysterical question) I had gotten my answer. Into the car I go, we need the yeast.
Now, I know my hubby seems to have many comments about my meals and ideas, but to his defense his background is food and he is first a chef although now in management and suit and tie. So he does now what he is talking about.
A must try for sure!
