When I was little, my dad & I made pizza together every Friday- it was our fun little family tradition. We used the pizza crust recipe from the Better Home & Gardens cookbook. It's super easy...




2 3/4 to 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 package active dry yeast

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup warm water (120-130 degrees)

2 tablespoons cooking oil


In a large mixing bowl combine 1 1/4 cups flour, yeast, and salt. Add water and oil. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can. Turn out on a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6-8 minutes total). Divide in half. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.


For pan pizzas, bake in a 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until brown, then top with toppings and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes. For thin pizza bake in a 425 degree oven for 12 minutes or until brown, then top with toppings and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes.


This recipe will usually provide enough dough for 2 small pan pizzas, or one large cookie-sheet sized rectangle pizza.



Your toppings sound delicious! My favorite is pizza with banana peppers and feta cheese :)

Jamy - add roasted red peppers and sauteed broccoli rabe to your list - YUM YUM


make sure the roasted red peppers do not sit in water or oil - lay them on paper towels do dry them out a little bit otherwise the water ruins the cheese / crust.


as for the broccoli rabe, just steam or saute first and cut in bite size pieces.


YUM - can we come over?

Yep! :) Grill all the veggies & meats first. Once those are done, it's time for the dough...

Spray the dough on one side with Pam Grilling (lightly), then put it on the grill for about 2 minutes with the lid closed. Spray the other side of the dough, quickly put the toppings on the side already grilled, close the lid and leave on there for about 2-3 minutes.

VIOLA! It's the best pizza you'll ever have. :)

i've had pizza parties...it is pretty easy to make your own dough and sauce.


you definitely need to have a pizza stone and one of those wood things to put pizza in and take it out...i think it is actually a good idea to have 2 of them...you can make the pizza on one while a pizza is in the oven and take the pizza out with the other wood thing.


also, it is fun to just provide the basics...dough, sauce, cheese and have everyone bring 1 or 2 toppings..


i like:





sundried tomatoes


grilled veggies (egg plant, zuchinni)

We use the Kraft kits alot of the time and then just improvise by adding some garlic salt, oregano and garlic powder. It makes the crust so yummy!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
