I have actually been cooking a little more in the past few weeks, usually Jordan grills for us but when he is out of town I am on my own! UGH! haha I usually try to make something quick and easy like grilled ham and cheese or homemade pizza!
Here is a recipe for my favorite Chocolate Cake that I made for our anniversary last week and also one of my favorite homemade pizzas! I did not make these the same day...I am not that talented! haha
White Chicken and Ranch Pizza
Pizza Crust - thanks Angela and Leslie....
1 cup warm water
1 package yeast
2 T Olive Oil
1 t sugar
1 t salt
1 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup regular flour
Dissolve yeast in water, mix in oil, sugar, salt. Stir in flours and work into a ball. Cover in a bowl and let rise for 30 mins. Preheat over to 500. Roll our dough and bale 8-10 mins. Remove from oven, add desired toppings and bake another 8-10 minutes!
I always stab my crust with a fork so it doesn't rise weird! Ps do not laugh at my crappy crust edging abilities!
2-3 green onions (chopped)
Chicken (chopped or shredded)
Directions- Use the ranch as your "sauce" I use a TON haha but use as much as you need to cover the crust.
Sprinkle with mozerella cheese (I use a lot of this also). Top with tomato, green onions and chicken. Final step is to top everything with cheddar cheese.
Bake and Enjoy!!
