Pizza and a Movie
Our fun activity this week was super yummy! Homemade personal pan pizzas enjoyed while watching Disney's Cow Belles (I think that's what it's called). We made our favorite and easiest pizza dough recipe, rolled out personal size pizzas and set out our favorite toppings (sausage, big pepperoni, olives, mushrooms). They were delicious! The kids made their own pizzas which they loved. It inspired them to try new things because making a cheese pizza just isn't that exciting. We set out blankets on the floor in front of the TV to contain any mess, dimmed the lights, and had a wonderful evening.
Combine sugar, salt, yeast, and flour. Add milk. Continue adding flour until dough consistency is correct (about 6 cups). Knead. If you are using a mixer add flour until the dough pulls away from the side of the bowl and knead the dough using the mixer. Roll out on cookie sheets or pizza pans and add desired toppings. Bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes. Makes 2-3 large pizzas depending on thickness and 8-10 personal size pizzas. You can make bread sticks with left over dough or freeze to use later.
3 Cups Milk (warmed for 3 min in microwave)
