Pizza Crust

We haven’t made homemade pizza in a very long time, but for quite awhile we made this recipe and two pizzas every two Sundays. One would go in the freezer and the we’d have the other tea and a slice or two for breakfast on Monday or Tuesday.  I stumbled into the recipe for the crust last weekend and made a note to add it to online recipes so I won’t lose it again.  I think when we make it again, we might do smaller versions as we’re eating less these days – and this crust is definitely not low calorie or low carb. It is, however VERY thick and tasty.  I’m going to use it as a base for small salmon / garlic mini pizzas today.

Recipe type: Baking
Cuisine: American
Serves: 2 large pizzas
Ingredients
  • 290 ml (1¼ C) water
  • 3 T Olive Oil
  • 1t Sugar or Splenda
  • 2 t Yeast
  • 500 g (3¾ C) Unbleached Plain Flour
  • ½ t Salt
  • Handful dried onion flakes
  • Herbs to taste - I use about a T each of oregano, basil, mixed Italian seasonings and chilli flakes.
Instructions
  1. If using a bread machine, put the ingredients in the machine in the order recommended. (Usually either all the dry ingredients first or the wet first). Set it for dough and let it do it's thing.
  2. If using a TMX or a Bellini (or any other brand of thermomixer, add the water, oil, sugar, and  yeast, then flour, salt, onion flakes and herbs. Blend on Speed 7 for 5 seconds then knead for 5 minutes (Speed 3 on the Bellini). Let rest for 15 minutes, then punch down and knead to remove the air and gas in the dough then shape into balls and into pizza bases. Allow to rise to double size before adding toppings.
  3. We don't use a tomato based sauce. Instead I spread about a tablespoon of olive oil on the base and then add about 2T finely diced garlic before adding cheese and toppings and ending with more cheese.
  4. Bake in a hot oven (220c or 450f) for about 25 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly all over.

15Sep22  I bought a rotisserie chicken for a quick dinner and then a day or so later made some very nice chicken soup with the carcass and breast meat leftover.  I cooked the noodles separately in some of the broth I took from the soup and then just put them in my bowl. There was a lot of chicken on that little bird!  I still have the other breast, all shredded and ready for a couple meals in the future. Not bad - 5 meals out of a $10 hot chicken!  #2022pad #cooking #cookingforone #chickensoup #rotisseriechicken #yum
19Feb22  Lentil patties with a quickly made garlic aioli and horseradish sauce for it.  They turned out good, but it was quite a bit more work than I'd prefer.  I still want to experiment with making other patties with lentils.  I think they'd be ideal for lunches.  I also liked the one lentil ball that I made from the same mixture.  I think those were nice because it was just about two bites. Oh, and to keep me company there's my Mom (on the left) with my Aunt Viola on the right, in the 1950's.  #2022pad #lentils #cooking #cookingforone #familypicsforcompany
20Feb22 I was searching for something to make for my Sunday dinner that was a bit different.  This was different!  This was roasted sweet potatoes covered with prawns and then a fancy Piri Piri  topping.  It was stunning.  I found the recipe at New Idea Food (17 April 2019) - "Sweet Jacket Potato with Piri-Piri Prawns" and the recipe was actually for one person. It turned out amazing.  #2022pad #cooking #cookingforone  #sundayprawns
19Jul21  Potato soup with a garlic bread crouton.  I had several bread ends stored in the freezer so decided it was time to make some croutons with them. I used the airfryer and after coating the front side with garlic butter, put them in the airfryer on low for 10 minutes at a time until they were done, rearranging them after each 10 min period. They turned out really nice and I've broken them up into pieces and stored them in the freezer for future uses.  #croutonsfrombreadends #garlic croutons #potatosoup #eventualbreadcrumbs #cooking #cookingforone #airfrying #airfryer
