If you follow me on instagram you will have already seen both of these pictures,
so I am sorry for the insta-peat, or re-gram whatever floats your boat.
But I had to share again this book that I just finished and how
truly amazing Elizabeth Smart is.
This was [as I said on Instagram] a heart wrenching and powerful book.
I was amazed to find out that she did not seek any counseling after all that she had been through
but that she used recreational therapy, through riding and caring for her horse(s).
Bless her for all she has been through.
Now to completely, 180 degrees, change the subject... here is what we had for dinner last night.
I have always wanted to have traditions of our family having homemade pizza each week,
we do for valentines day, but I have never found a dough recipe that I have kept, until now.
I found this blog [eggs on sunday - - it is on my sidebar if you want to follow]
and she had a pizza and dough recipe that I used.
So here is the recipe:
The recipe below makes enough for one 14-inch pizza. You can easily double it and freeze the other half after the dough rises; freeze in a ziptop bag and then thaw it in the refrigerator or at room temperature the day you plan to use it (make sure to let it come up to room temperature before you roll it out and bake it — cold dough won’t cut it!)
Makes enough dough for one 14-inch pizza; can easily be doubled.
I used my bosch to mix it all but then I took it out and kneaded it myself, which was fun because I had the time and it is a fairly small thing of dough. I did take her advice about putting the bowl on top a heating pad. Worked like a gem. I did let it raise for the full two hours. The one thing I will warn not to do it make it too large because then it is pretty thin crust, duh. I probably didn't have to say that, but since I made the mistake, I thought I would warn you. Enjoy! If you make it please let me know, I would love to hear how it turns out for you!
