I have your attention with that title don't I? We are continuing to focus on unique ways to use your flour. This recipe can make some wonderful things. It comes from http://savoryseasoning.blogspot.com/. My thanks to this blog for posting this fabulous recipe!
Now, we are not just going to make pizza. We are going to make this a matter of convenience. In all seriousness, that is exactly what we are going to do. Remember that Bread maker we pulled out a few weeks ago, it should still be easy to access at this point. Get it out.
The reason we are going to use this machine, is that it will do all the work. This is very important to the LRH, and most likely everyone else, because I have a long list of things to do every day. So, on a day you are home, and still have that long list, you can make up several batches of this and save them for later.
Pour in your warm water.
Put in all your dry ingredients (yeast, sugar, salt). Then add your honey, olive oil and flour.
Turn it on your dough cycle and leave!
When the cycle is done, take the dough out and punch it down.
Place the dough into a gallon zip-lock bag. My sister states that she keeps her bags and uses them over and over to put this same dough in.
This is how it looks just after I zipped the bag.
Put it in the refrigerator overnight.
This is how it looks the next day.
Lessons to be learned:
- It took me about 3 minutes to put everything into the bread machine
- I only used my Food Storage ingredients.
- I got a lot done while the bread machine did the work for me.....did you catch that? It did the work for me.
- Convenience: If you make several batches in a day, you have dough for other days. How does that work? Take it out of the refrigerator, punch it down, wrap it in plastic wrap and get about 3 balls of dough into that same zip-lock bag and freeze them. On the day you want to use it, take it out in the morning and let it defrost in your refrigerator. By dinner time, it is ready to go.
- It is a lot less expensive to make this from scratch than to purchase dough from the store or from a mix.
- The hands on time was less than 10 minutes per batch.
- You can make more than Pizza dough with this. The first thought are those wonderful bread sticks that can be made. Watch the blog for more ideas of how to use it.
