5 from the kitchen…


Snack: whole wheat multi grain bread, peanut butter, banana slices, and drizzled nutella.


Gift: whole wheat flour with cinnamon crust apple pie.


Lunch: ricotta cheese with blackberries and strawberries french toast.


Craving: peanut butter chocolate chip cookies ♥ I’ve also made these peanut butter and chocolate chip OATMEAL cookies. Also very yummy!


Dinner: homemade dough, sauce; pizza!

Dough Recipe:

2-1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour, plus more for kneading

1 cup Warm Water {115-120 degrees}

1 packet Active Dry Yeast ( we could have used extra; so next time I’ll be amending it to 1 1/2 packets)

1/2 teaspoon Honey

1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 teaspoon Olive Oil, plus more for oiling bowl

Add a half teaspoon of honey into a clean large bowl. Add the hot water into the bowl and sprinkle with the packet of yeast. Stir and let sit for a few minutes. Season with a half teaspoon of salt and olive oil. Sprinkle with one cup of the flour, stir with a spatula. Add in the second cup, stir until combine. Lastly add the remaining half cup of flour and stir by hand until combined. On a well floured surface, knead the dough {adding more flour if needed} until no longer sticky. Should take five minutes.

Form the dough into a ball and add it to the bowl with the olive oil. Coat the dough with the oil, using it to work the oil up the sides of the bowl. Cover with a towel and place in a dry warm place for about an hour.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Lightly oil a large, rimmed sheet pan with olive oil and sprinkle the semolina, shaking the pan so it spreads out.

After you’ve made the dough and let it rise. Punch it down and spread it out with your finger tips in the center of the sheet pan. (we used two medium sized cake rounds)

*DON’T FORGET* to poke holes in the dough; holes are important to aerate the dough (we forgot, and had to cook it a bit longer; and the dough was still a bit chewy in the center)

Spread the desired amount of Pizza Sauce: (we used the bf’s ‘not written down, no measurements homemade. check out some of these recipes.) all over the pizza leaving an edge crust. And add desired toppings.

This recipe yields one large pizza, two medium pizzas or 4 individual size pizzas.
