at-home pizza making

April 23, 2013

at home pizza making || The Average Girl's Guide During last week’s TAGG Talk, I mentioned I have been in need of a major spicing up to our dinner routine. We have no time to cook and it impedes on the little time we have together as a family. Solution? Cook together! I am a girl who is all about multi-tasking! Sunday was the perfect time to try at our hand pizza making; something I’ve wanted to do for ages together. We picked up the dough from Publix, our local grocer, and opted to make three mini pies instead of one large one. Candidly speaking, our little girl is anti-pizza — shocking since she inhales both cheese and bread on the regular! — so we had high hopes putting her favorite brie (clearly a girl with upscale taste! ha) on bread would be a win.

Our three pies (not the prettiest but tastes amazing!):

#1: Brie, with kalamata olives on half.

#2: fresh mozzorrella, turkey pepporoni, sliced tomatoes, mushrooms.

#3: Spinach, artichokes, sliced tomatoes, fresh spinach, goat cheese.

Bake at 400 degrees, for 18-25 minutes, depending on your oven.

The meal wasn’t “spicy” but it definitely spiced up our dinner routine and we loved spending those extra minutes together. Cooking should be fun, and I swear the pizza tasted better than anything we could have had delivered. Dinner victory! {{cheers}}

Check out the serious expression on our girl’s face! She’s not even letting her headband falling in her face deter her. All biz-ness up in here!

    So awesome that you got your family involved in cooking, and such a gourmet pizza meal! Hehe. I LOVE making my own dough and making pizza at home too. No guilt from eating extra b/c I know we’re using good ingredients and not a lot of fat/oil. Keep it up!
