Day 5

M made her own lunch today so here is D's snack.
Vanilla yogurt with a couple of broken up Chocolate Quaker Quakes to mix in for crunch.

A wasn't here today either so it was just D for lunch...

She had a mini deep dish cheese pizza, 3 hotdog hearts, ketchup for dipping and some cucumber slices.

I almost always have pizza dough in my fridge...I use it for everything!

Pizza Dough
3 1/4 C flour (you can use any flour.  I usually use a combo of white whole wheat and bread flour)
1 1/4 tsp salt (I usually use 2 good pinches of kosher salt)
2 TBS olive oil
1 1/4 C warm water
2 tsp instant yeast.

I usually put the flour, yeast and salt into a bowl mix with a wisk, make a well in the middle and pour in the water and oil.  I use my hand to combine it all and knead it for a minute or two until it looks smooth, then I put it in an oiled bowl, cover and let sit for an hour, after that I use it or put it in the fridge.

For the mini deep dish pizzas
I roll the dough out to about 1/8" or so (room temperature dough is easiest to work with) then I cut it with a 3 1/2" round cookie cutter.  I put the dough into a muffin tin (mine is non stick but I still spray it with pam).  I press it into the bottom and part way up the side.  I put in a few diced tomatoes and a tablespoon of shredded cheese.  Bake for about 10 minutes in a preheated 450 degree oven.  Let cool in the pan for a couple of minutes then remove to a wire rack...or just eat them!
