Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Like I said in a previous post, I love pizza. I can eat pizza for every meal of the day.  Well I used to be able to eat every meal and have no problem but since I've gotten older I can't eat tomato sauce for two meals back to back and not have acid reflux :(
 I needed a pizza crust that was a little healthier so I decided to use whole wheat flour and it just as delicious as regular crust.  You really can't tell the difference. I had my neice and nephews over and they ate it all up.
I used this crust to make a Sicilian Style pizza that is stretch out on a cookie sheet and cut into a square or a rectangle.  I believe you get some pizza out of this style.

Tools you'll need:
Plastic Wrap
2 Cookie Sheets
Large Plastic Container
Large Bowl
Pastry Brush

Yields: 2 Sicilian Style Pizza

Recipe
4 cups of Whole Wheat Flour, I used King Arthur's Flour
2 cups of Unbleached Bread Flour,I used King Arthur's Flour
2 1/4 cups of Warm Water
1 Tablespoon of Dry Active Yeast
2 Tablespoons of Sugar
2 Teaspoons of Sea Salt
4 to 5 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
3 Tablespoons of Corn Meal

Combine warm water, sugar, yeast and 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil.
While the yeast is blooming combine flour and salt.
Once the yeast has fully bloomed add to flour and salt.
Mix well. With a spoon fold dough into it for 5 minutes. I spun the bowl with every fold.
The dough will be tacky, sprinkle some flour and cover with some plastic wrap or an elastic cover. 
Let it double in size.
Divide in half and sprinkle a little flour before lightly kneading and rolling into a tight ball using a roll and tuck motion.Wrap dough in plastic wrap and place in gallon ziplock bag or a large container. Place in the refrigerator overnight.
Take dough out of refrigerator 3 to 4 hours before baking. Knead dough into itself and tucking it into a tight ball. Place into a large container and covered letting them double in size again.

To bake
Brush a tablespoon of olive oil on each cookie sheet then sprinkle corn meal. Press dough out on the cookie sheet trying to reach all the corners, if the dough tear pinch the dough together. Once you have the dough pressed out let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread of pizza sauce, sprinkle on cheese and add your favorite topping, I used whole milk mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese and uncured pepperoni.
Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and brown and bubbly, rotating after 10 minutes. Let it cool for 5 to 10 minutes before cutting.

  4. This looks yummy! I used to make pizza and calzones with my kids when they were younger. We incorporated that as part of our "home economics" for our homeschooling schedule. Now I try to stay away from gluten, but I haven't yet found a really good gluten-free flour that tastes good.

Chubby Hubby Cookies

I was inspired to make these cookies from a famous ice cream from Vermont with the same name. The ice cream has vanilla malt ice cream with peanut butter and fudge covered pretzels with a fudge and peanut butter swirl, yum.
I've seen other recipes on the internet of recipes for truffles or bars with the name of the ice cream and would have either peanut butter or caramel but never had the malt in it.

Malt is used for beer in the brewing process. It is usually made from barley. It is a sweet and creamy flavor, you might know it from a candy called Whoppers, chocolate covered malted milk balls.
This is malted vanilla cookie with peanut butter chips, milk chocolate chips, crushed pretzels with a peanut butter and chocolate drizzle.

Tip:
The longer you chill the cookie dough the better and keep the cookie dough cold before baking.
Room temperature butter and eggs will mix better. For room temperature eggs, take out of the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes bef…

Doughnut Muffins

I for-one love doughnuts but they don't love me. Where I live we really don't have an amazing doughnut shop that's within a 20 mile radius and don't run out before I wake up (I normally wake up when a lot of doughnut shops close).
I've seen doughnut muffins around the internet and on my favorite cooking shows but I could never find them around so as usual I had to make them. Last month I went onto Amazon to do a little shopping for some cooking supplies like a new muffin pan and some other fun stuff. So I got a new muffin or cupcake pan that said it was King Size. When I saw the pan I didn't think it was going to be that big but when I received I was pleasantly surprised. (Click on the link below)
Wilton 6-Cup King Size Muffin Pan To me it didn't look that big until I received it. They do not joke around when they say its KING size. Its about twice the size of a regular muffin pan.

Slow Cooker Louisiana White Beans and Rice

I grew up eating this dish since I was born and raised in Louisiana. Typically you might hear of red beans and rice with Andouille sausage, which is traditionally eaten on Mondays using soaked red kidney beans, cooked with a ham hake, Creole seasonings, bay leafs, and sausage added in or topped servings over cooked rice. 
White beans are also called Great Northern Beans, not to be confused with  Navy Beans, they are bigger but smaller than Cannellini beans or White Kidney Beans.
Together its a complete protein, relatively cheap maybe $10 for a whole pot of beans, rice and sausage and can be GLUTEN-FREE. Also can last for multiple meals.
Please note I used a 7 quart Slow Cooker, so the cooking times might be different for each slow cooker.

Serving: 2 to 3 Meals

Recipe
White Beans Soak
2 pound package Dried Great Northern Beans
6 Bay Leaves
1 Tablespoon Sea Salt
5 to 6 Cups water

Go through the beans and take out any ones that look bad.
Line slower cooker with liners, add white beans…
