In the midst of chaos lies creativity
Hello, sweet friends…
Many of us think creativity in terms of making something…
however did you know that the root word for creative is ‘to grow’
The other day in preparing to make a pizza I realized “I have a problem!” I didn’t have yeast to make pizza dough. This week my creativity “grew” as I problem solved a different way to create a meal. It was the perfect landscape and opportunity to create an exquisite meal…and grow.
Homemade No Yeast Pizza Dough
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon herb spices
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4- cup + 2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon canola oil
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder onion powder, garlic powder, herbs, and salt; whisk until thoroughly combined and set aside.
Combine water and oil in a separate bowl or cup; stir to combine.
Slowly add water to the flour mixture.
Using a wooden spoon, or your hands, gently stir and mix until dough forms a ball; dough should be soft, but not sticky. Add more water if it’s too dry, 1 tablespoon at a time. If it’s too sticky, add more flour.
Lightly flour your work area and knead dough for 5 minutes.
Line a baking sheet or a pizza pan with paper and lightly spray it with cooking spray.
Spread pizza dough on the prepared pan, using the palm of your hands and fingers to stretch it out to about a 1-inch thickness.
PIZZA DOUGH NOTES
To add toppings, pre-bake crust for 8 minutes; add tomato sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and continue to bake for 10 to 12 more minutes.
Grill or bake in a 400-degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Happy Memorial Day!
