Milk Pizza Dough


Ahh, the weekend.  What better way to spend the weekend than by cooking up a personalized pizza made with your very own homemade pizza dough.  If nothing else goods from this here pandemic, having the time to cook elaborate meals and attempt many new recipes will have been worth the stress and frustration.  Maybe.  Frustrations are quite high today.

With time on my hands and still having a craving for yummy pizza another homemade pizza dough was tempted.  The Best Pizza Dough Recipe was more along the line of an original pizza dough as it requires yeast and proof times.  It did not contain garlic sadly, but it did contain milk, oddly enough.  Since my favorite tortilla recipe, another T&T staple, contains milk oddly enough, I decided this recipe had to be tried straight away.

Modifications Made:
Salt was increased to one full tablespoon and dough was cooked following the traditional pizza crust cooking method.  

Scaled for Likability: Great
Yes, it took time to prepare but most of the work was done by the paddle mixer on the stand mixer itself.  My actual time was ten minutes, maybe.  The hardest part, deciding what toppings to use and rolling the dough.  One was perfectly round, the other looked like one of the dozen or so block shaped states (Arizona, Dakotas, Oklahoma, Oregon, New Mexico, Utah, take your pick).  Shape didn't matter as the resulting dough was perfect.  Well almost perfect as it needed garlic butter crusts.  Resulting dough was pillow soft insides with a crunchy bottom layer.  There was pull when biting off the crust itself and a slight chew when eating.  It was so good.  

Next time the dough is made, no garlic will not be added to the dough itself as the second half of the dough will be used for pizza rolls.  Cinnamon rolls made with pizza dough.  Preferably with better results than the Sweet Garlic Buns from a couple of nights ago.

Better Than Campbell's Old Fashion Vegetable Soup

Went to the store with the hopes of gathering fresh produce for soup. With more than 45 people in line for two packages of any meat product and the produce section containing only avocado, orange, and most randomly, strawberries, I settled upon canned soup.  Well not canned soup since that section was still void of food, too.  Instead soup made from canned goods as the canned vegetable section had been mostly restocked. Soups like this 15 Minute Vegetable Soup  are ideal in dire food situations such as current times. Modifications Made: Plain petite diced tomatoes for flavored tomatoes, frozen carrots instead of canned, green beans and corn undrained, peas omitted (gross, nasty little pods), one can tomato sauce, two low sodium chicken and two pollo de tomate bouillon cubes, six cups water.  Once onions were softened, carrots, juice of green beans and corn, sauce, bouillon cubes, water were added and allowed to simmer until carrots almost tender.  Green beans and corn tossed in, heat t

Way Too Rich, Extra Heavy Cheesecake

Pictures are deceptive. What this picture of this recipe does not show is how old and faded the print out paper is, how many stains are smudged across various spots, and the numerous notes written in the top right corner with the first one dating back to college days in 2001.  Yikes, twenty years ago makes this paper print out old, no wait, that makes me old.  Eek.   Sadly, my current living quarters do not allow for cooking of this cheesecake.  In fact the last time this recipe has been made have been close to six or seven years.  That is just too long.  Too long.  Luckily, we are spending Spring Break at family with a real oven.  A family who will help eat this oh so rich, very decadent, supremely yummy cheesecake. Modifications Made: There are four keys to a successful cheesecake. ONE: all ingredients must be room temperature.  If your house is ice chest cold, then warm the ingredients on the stovetop. TWO: do not over mix.  Excessive mixing creates air pockets resulting in split mi

The Great Freeze 2021 Vegetable Broth

Good grief, this cold snap.  Every year I wish and wish for cold weather so this table can eat soups without melting.  Well this year winter came and came with a vengeance.  Two days below freezing with no water, no power, no internet/cell service.  It's the dark ages.  If you need more info just search for Texas Grid Failure 2021 .  Yes, this tragic affair has its own wiki page.  Good grief. Did you know that if temperatures drop below freezing for too long, refrigerators will not keep your cold stuff from freezing?  Well, they don't.  And with 17℉ temps, this tables fridge contents froze.  What to do with a fridge full of frozen fresh veggies? Veggie stock. No recipe was used, it was just all the veggies in the fridge (white and yellow onions, garlic, jalapeno, green onions, three roma tomatoes, celery, two russet potatoes, seven carrots, and a red and green bell pepper) salt and pepper, and enough water to just touch the top layer of veggies.  I did not want the veggies floa
