So I am a guest here but I wanted to let you into our homes on a typical Friday night!
Even when we are away from home we have to have it. We are away this weekend staying with my sister. Fortunately they like to have pizza and movie night also. Only tonight we are going to eat pizza and then go to a movie! Fun huh? the kids are way excited! Funny how traditions stick no matter what huh? My kids get upset if we say we are leaving town on the weekends. Even to go visit family!! "What about pizza and movie night?" or "We have to have pizza and movie night!" You'd think they would be excited to go see grandma or play with their cousins. We really hope this tradition sticks though AND that it is still cool when our kids are teenagers. They can have friends over and we can bake like 6 pizzas, but we will know what our kids are up to and be able to have fun with them. That is the end goal of this tradition!
Want our recipes? We have 2 that are the backbone of our tradition!
1 c. warm water
1/4 c. sugar
1 Tbsp. yeast
(if it is active dry yeast it needs to sit and bloom here for a few min. -instant yeast press on!)
1/4 c. oil
mix all together, add
1 tsp. salt
3-4 c. flour till soft dough
let rise to double, roll out.
Makes 2- med round or 1- 13X15 cookie sheet
bake @400 for 12-15 min. until crust is golden brown
8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/8 tsp. chili powder
1/8 tsp. onion powder
1/2 Tbsp. dried oregano
1/2 Tbsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. pepper
mix and spread on rolled out pizza dough
we use the regular toppings:
olives (lots of these)
This other pizza is super yummy!
We found it here online while looking for a healthier pizza, since we do eat pizza once a week!
*we also like to add a tiny bit of Italian sausage to spice it up! :)
SO, gonna try to have Pizza and movie night next Friday night? maybe you don't like movies, try pizza and game night! Our friends have "Fun Fridays" they have Pizza and then watch a movie, only they have popcorn too! But they mix in mini marshmallows with their popcorn! (it is YUM!!)
