Here is another quick, easy, and yummy meal for you all (with Weight Watcher’s Points Plus included!). This is a Fleischman’s recipe that is on allrecipes.com. While we love to have pizza, i don’t always love the time it takes to make it or even the time it takes to order and have it delivered….and I certainly don’t feel like going out to pick it up. Yup. I’m lazy like that sometimes.
When you read this recipe, you might think there is a mistake when you read it since it calls for two packages of yeast. I’m not sure if it was a misprint or not but I decided to use it since it was not your normal pizza dough. I was worried it might cause the pizza to taste yeasty but fears were set aside and I bit the bullet and just did it. No yeasty taste evolved and the pizza rose up nice and high causing this pie to become a definite deep dish!
This is very versatile and you could make this several different flavors – and even flavor the crust! This was about as adventurous as Grumpy allowed me to get with the pizza. While I would have loved to to went with BBQ or Buffalo Chicken, I had to stick to pepperoni. At least he let me toss some olives and spicy pickled peppers on top.
