Kittie shots

Nothing much new here. Grumpy and I had a nice lazy day at home. I am heading to Vegas on Monday. We just hung out which is always good. The kitties loved it. Here are some pictures

Misty playing Footsie with Grumpy

Cleo cuddled up with us on the couch This picture I took a while ago as you can see Misty watches over Grumpy when he naps. So I made my first homemade pizza from scratch today. I have been graving pizza a lot lately but have been using the dough you can get in the store. We had bought some pesto mix which tastes so yummy on pizza with cheese sprinkled over (I do not like sauce on my pizza). Then I realized I could make my own dough in the bread maker my mom had given me for Christmas (Which I had yet to use). So here it is.
I think I will have to pre-bake the dough before putting cheese on the next time as it was not really done. I think I will also experiment with the dough some more - maybe mix basil and garlic into it.

For dough I use 1 cup of whole wheat flour, two cups of white flour, 2tsp of yeast, 1 cup of hot water, 2Tbs of olive oil, 2tsp of salt, 2TBS of wheatgerm,and a tsp of flax seed. I like to sprinkle some Italian seasoning in as well. For sauce I just paint on some tomato sauce, sprinkle on some Italian seasoning and hot pepper flakes, cover that with a commercial 6 Italian cheese mix add any toppings and cover the whole thing with a mixture of shredded provolone and Mozzarella. Drizzle a little olive oil over the cheese and sprinkle some dried oregano seasoning over and bake in a 425 degree oven for 12 minutes or until the cheese gets bubbly and browns. One note, the recipe for the dough makes enough for two crusts, I let it rise in the oven with the light on (it keeps the dough warm) for an hour take it out and split it in half. Half goes into a plastic storage bag and into the freezer for next week, the other half gets rolled out into a circle and topped.
