Two nights ago, the boys and I (and Chrissy, too) were desperately craving pizza. There’s something about that texture that just... mmm, I’m drooling. Well, pizza of any sort is just about out, but we hadn’t given up hope of trying to make our own, after our experience at zpizza.
I’m SO glad we took our own advice and made pizza at home. It was so much better with just a few simple adjustments to how it’s cooked. Here’s the recipe:
Better Than Bought Pizza
1 small container tomato/pizza sauce of your choice
1 package (2 cups) Daiya Shreds, mozzarella flavor
Toppings of your choice
Something to bake the pizza on
a mixing bowl
hands (helpful, but not required)
Directions: Make the Betty Crocker Pizza Mix as directed, adding spices to the dough, if desired. Use about 3/4 cup of Daiya on the uncooked crust, and place into an oven (as directed on the crust package) for 6 minutes, or until the shreds just start to take on a dry look. Remove your pizza from the oven and add your toppings. You will want to precook your toppings, as needed. Over your toppings, as 1/2 cup of Daiya shreds and bake for an additional 12-14 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
Slice and enjoy.
If I could, I’d totally talk to zpizza and suggest to them that they do this at their restaurant, too. It makes all the different in the world to cook it this way. The flavor is better, the texture is normal (before the shreds coated your mouth really strangely) and it’s just a more enjoyable experience.
My Moo Rating: 5/5
Tomorrow... tuna salad. I know, it doesn’t traditionally have milk in it, but we created a good recipe, so I’m sharing.
