#4's Dinner

#4 has a thing for making homemade pizza.  His dinner night is Monday, which perfectly coincides with Family Home Evening.

Last night, the Warden got home all fired up to watch the NCAA final game, so we had Family Home Evening early.

#4 had made one batch of dough in the bread machine in the morning before he left for school and had to throw the other in when he returned home.  The dough finished in perfect time.  #4 and I sprayed four pans and divided the dough into nine pieces.  We stretched them into circles and laid them on the trays.  #4 went around and spread sauce on each, and we sprinkled each with mozzarella cheese.

We called everyone in and had them decorate their pizzas however they wanted to.  For toppings, we had:

  • pepperoni
  • sausage
  • pineapple
  • mushrooms
  • olives

We couldn't possibly fit all four pans in the oven at the same time, so we cooked the larger pizzas first for 15 minutes and then threw the smaller ones in for 12 minutes. 

While they baked, we had Family Home Evening.

Dinner was FANTASTIC!

Here's the dough recipe we used.  Like I said, we used the bread machine, so we put all of the ingredients in in the exact order listed.

1 C. water
3 C. flour
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. oil
1 pkg. yeast

We put it on the French bread dough setting.  I took about an hour and 38 minutes to finish the setting.

There's just some amount of satisfaction that what's being served is fresh and not filled with all kinds of additives and preservatives.  There's also a wonderful feeling knowing that the kids finish their night feeling capable.

Thanks for the recipe and it looks yummy. I don't cook from scratch very often; so I will try this one. It does sound more healthy.
