Nothing better than pizza two nights in a row!
My twins have been having so much fun in the kitchen lately. They've gathered up all my cookbooks, recipe magazines, and misc. recipes and have been building their own little cookbook of their favorite dishes. Not only have they been copying down recipes but inventing them too!! This week they made pizza twice. Chicken barbeque and ranch chicken broccoli. Both were very good. The recipes are below.
For one pizza that fits on cookie sheet (we doubled this)
2 T. yeast dissolved in 1 cup water
2 teas. olive oil
1/2 teas. salt
3 1/2 cups flour
MIx together the dough well and add 1 more cup flour to mixture as mixing. Let rise for 1 hour.
Punch dough down and knead for 2 minutes and press into greased baking sheet.
2 chicken breast, cooked and chopped
1-2 cups barbeque sauce
1/2 cup finely chopped onions (we used dried onions)
2 cups shredded cheese (parmesan and mozzarella are our favorites)
Spread some sauce on the dough, mix the rest with the chicken and onions and spread over dough. Sprinkle with parmesan and mozzarella cheese. Bake in 450 oven for 15 minutes.
Ranch Chicken and Broccoli
Same dough as listed above.
Chop in chopper about 2-3 cups fresh broccoli
2 cups chopped chicken
Ranch dressing or, in our case tonight we used random bottles we had in the fridge. We had 2 partial containers of Ranch and a partial container of Parmesan Caesar dressing. (It turned out to be a great combination)
2 cups shredded cheese
Make dough and set to rise. Then mix the chicken and broccoli in a bowl and add enough dressing just to coat and moisten the mixture. Spread dressing on dough then add toppings and cheese last. Bake as directed above. This was an extremely easy and fast pizza to make and it was a huge hit!! I think they preferred it over the barbeque.
