Easy Peasy Pizza
We love pizza ! For years and years pizza has been our go to Friday night meal. Over the years we have had pizza delivered, picked up a pizza on the way home from work, then decided we needed a healthier version. For several years I purchased a well known pizza shell that was a whole wheat version. It was good, but a little too chewy - and frankly, too expensive. Then I came upon a brand called Mama Mary's. Two whole wheat crusts in a package. For years I bought them at Walmart and would stock up and store them in the freezer. Then one day - bam! - they disappeared. I noticed my local grocery store carried Mama Mary products and asked several times to have the whole wheat version in stock. Each time I was told yes...it will take a few weeks. Well, they never did show up. Then I searched and found whole wheat pizza shells at Whole Foods. You can see a post about them here -
And that was good, but not great. Then the pandemic hit and I decided to try my hand at making my own pizza dough. There are TONS of recipes online and I tried a few. Some were too thin, some too chewy for our taste - and I finally found this Pizza Crust yeast and tried the recipe on the package. SUCCESS! We really like it, it is easy to make, and I can use some whole wheat flour! For a few weeks there during the Covid panic you could not find the yeast anywhere - everyone was baking! When I did find it, I stocked up.
It says "fast and easy on the package - and it is!
It comes in packs of three - and I use my Kitchenaid Stand Mixer to make the dough.
