We LOVE Italian food! I ate pizza almost everyday of MacKenzie's pre-birth. So I have this amazing pizza dough recipe, (it's works in California Rebecca) that has turned out every time so far. A few weeks ago Justin and I decided to make calzones with it... SO GOOD!!! Notice the 3 !!! I made them again last night and was in heaven after 2 previous nights of disgusting home made mac & cheese, and even worse pasta salad. Yay for comfort food that turns out fantastic!
Here's the recipe:
2 cups hot water from tap
1 TB dry active yeast
2 TB brown sugar (to me that means 4-5 TB brown sugar)
4-5 or even 6 cups flour
1 tsp salt
mix it, let rise one hour
I know you're thinking "1 HOUR!!!" In that time you can clean the kitchen, change a diaper or 2, threaten your wild children who are really not listening now that it's the end of the day, get your pizza topping and sauce ready. It goes by fast.
Spray your not pizza stone:) make your calzone. Baste the top with olive oil and bake 425* for 12-15 minutes. SOOO good. Tell me how it was if you actually try this.
