Welcome to Senior Salon Pit Stop #284
Welcome to this week’s Weekly Wrap-up and Blog Link-up.
Each week I will be sharing a great Linky for you to connect with and catch up on what’s new around the blogging world! I will also be sharing a few things that I’ve been up to in the last week, along with some of my favorite posts shared from last week’s link-up!
What’s been going on at Homemade on a Weeknight?
Hello all! I hope you are surviving the weather changes. Our family has been dealing with a lingering cold. This always makes me think of the things that the mom and dads still have to do even when they don’t feel good either. It’s obviously the worst with both parents are ill, or if there is only one parent and they are under the weather. One show that must go on is the meals. While everyone may have smaller appetites, they still gotta eat. When it’s just the parents that are ill – the kids definitely still gotta eat. When it’s the last scenario for me – homemade pizza is what’s for dinner. I have a super easy pizza dough recipe that I can make in just a few minutes and leave to an hour or so to rise. Then just add some seasoning to a can of tomato sauce, top it with some cheese and pepperoni and we are all set. I make two pizzas using my favorite pizza pans and the kids are happy as can be. Do you have a super simple go to recipe for when you just don’t feel like cooking?
Thin Crust Pizza Dough
- 2 tbsp Yeast instant
- ⅓ cup Oil
- 1½ cup Warm Water
- 2 tbsp Sugar
- 2 tsp Salt
- 4½ cups Flour
- Prepare all of the ingredients
- In a large bowl, combine warm water, yeast, sugar, salt, and oil. Let sit to activate for about 10 minutes. Yeast should become foamy.
- Add flour to activated yeast mixture. Stir together until a sticky dough forms. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to proof for about an hour (until dough has doubled in size)
- Preheat oven to 425degF.
- Once risen, split into two equal halves. Add one half of dough to floured surface and use a rolling pin to press out into ¼-in thick in the shape of the baking sheet. Move to parchment paper covered baking sheet. Spray with cooking oil.
- Bake for 8 minutes.
- Continue to pizza recipe directions.
