Pizza and Pancakes

Last night being Friday Night, Pizza was on the menu for dinner. We had previosly purchased a pizza dough mix from dixie diner. The dough was simple enought to make; add oil, water and an egg, stir until well mixed. The textue of the dough was somewhat crumbly and spongey at the same time. I rolled it out to about 1/8 inch thick and placed on a well greased baking tray. The dough was topped with a comercial low sugar pizza sauce, a combonation of bacon, onions, mushrooms, and garlic that I had saute'd and let cool a little, and Kraft Mozzeralla cheese. I then baked it according to the directiosn on the dough package, 425 deg for 18 mins. I should have checked the pizza a few minutes early. The cheese was a little over carmalized, and the dough a little dried out. Over all the flavor was fine, the dough was a little biscuity, but not bad. The was a nice herb flavor to the dough, and the flat bread recipe on the container might be worth a try. I give it a silver star, good but not great.

This morning we had Blueberry Pancakes, StellaStyle. While the portion size was small, in fact I ended up eating 2 portions, the taste was mahhhvulus. The Prep was relatilvely straight forward. Dump everything in a food processor, blend, scrape, blend again. I did end up adding a couple of tablespoons of water to the batter as it became to thick. Cook like normal pancakes. We served it topped with a few extra blueberries and some whipped cream. This is definatley going to be added to our regular weekend breakfast rotation. Another Gold Star for George Stella and his StellaStyle pancakes.
