Boboli.....Making your own!

As we finalize our focus on White flour, I give you the "Boboli".  We have all seem them at the store, and most likely have purchased them due to their convenience.  Well, using our same "Little Caesars Pizza Dough" recipe, you can make your own out of your food storage staples.  Here are the steps

In previous posts, we made this recipe in our bread machine and then placed the dough in a zip-lock bag overnight in the refrigerator.   Here is how the dough looks right out of the refrigerator.

Drizzle olive oil on your pan. 

Empty the dough from the bag onto the pan.  Press the dough out, flip it over and press again.  It is now coated with olive oil.

After letting the dough rest for a few minutes press the dough to the desired shape.  The dough as a "memory", and may not let you be as symmetrical as you desire (....let me rephrase I desire!).

Sprinkle it with Parmesan Cheese.

Put it into a 350 degree oven for 5-10 minutes depending upon the color you wish. Remember, you are only cooking it halfway. When you use it to make your pizza, it will finish cooking.

Here it is on the cooling rack. 

Wrap it in plastic wrap (and then freezer wrap) and freeze it.  Pull it out whenever you wish to use it!

Lesson's Learned:
  • Your bread machine did all the work!  (see previous post on "Little Caesars Pizza Dough")
  • It took maybe 5 minutes to prepare for the oven.
  • It took a couple of minutes to wrap it up.
  • Convenience:  You have them ready when you are ready.  When you come home from a busy evening of sports, dance, work, etc, you can easily pull this out and make your 'made-to-order' pizza of your choosing!
  • It is all made with basic Food Storage ingredients.
It's yummy, and easy!
