Good Morning Everyone! Happy HUMP day!! Hehe I really wanted to say that!
I hope everyone is having a fabulous day so far! I started off my day with a nice healthy breaky of Overnight Refrigerator Oats. I told you guys about this on Facebook about it last night and I did end up making them.
The recipe calls for oats, chia seeds, greek yogurt, Milk and whatever flavorings/sweeteners you want. I did really enjoy it but I have a couple things I want to change, first thing is next time I would nix the yogurt, it was too tangy in my opinion. Since I am assuming they added the greek yogurt for the protein factor, I think I might sub in some protein powder next time.
Secondly, I didn’t have chia so I didn’t add it, but I forgot to adjust the amount of liquid I added, so it turned out a bit runny. It was still good but I think I could make it much better. Once I get it up to my standards, I will definitely post the recipe here.
As far as this recipe goes, I wanted to give everyone a yummy pizza recipe that is not so exotic! After some comments on my Butter Chicken Pizza recipe from yesterday, I realized there are a lot of people that live in areas that don’t carry some of the more hard to find ingredients like the butter chicken sauce and sriracha. This recipe contains all ingredients that you should be able to find easily, and it’s also kid friendly!
I mean, I don’t have any kids so I didn’t test this with a kid, but I can’t see how they wouldn’t like ham & cheese pizza!
Have I ever told you how much I love pizza? No. Oh Okay, I really love pizza. Like really love it and can eat it everyday of my life.
Come back tomorrow for an awesome giveaway, peeps!
Ham & Cheesy Pizza:
1 prepared pizza crust on a non stick cookie sheet (not cooked) my recipe is below
1/2 cup pizza sauce, use your favorite brand or homemade if you’re crafty like that
2 cups grated mozzarella
1 cup chopped deli ham
6 slices havarti cheese
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Spread the prepared pizza crust evenly with the pizza sauce, leaving a 1/2 border around the sides. Top the pizza sauce with just a small sprinkling of cheese, this helps the other toppings to stick.
Add the ham evenly and follow with the slices of havarti cheese and then top with the remaining mozzarella.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 375 and cook for another 5-7 minutes until the cheese is beginning to brown and the crust is golden.
Remove to cool for 4-5 minutes in the pan and then remove to a board and slice into squares.
Enjoy! My Pizza dough recipe below.
Thin and Crispy Pizza Dough:
makes one large pizza dough (size of a regular cookie sheet)
1/2 cup lukewarm water
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp Yeast
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 cup flour
In a large bowl, dissolve sugar in water and then sprinkle the yeast over the water. Allow to sit for 10 minutes.
After the 10 minutes is up, add the salt, oil and 1/2 cup of flour, stir until smooth. Add another 1/2 cup of flour and stir again, if the mixture is still very sticky add in a little more flour and begin to kneed. Kneed for about 5 minutes, adding more flour if needed, until the dough becomes soft and elastic. Best thing about this recipe? It doesn’t need to rise! Throw it in a pan, add toppings, bake and enjoy.
