Yet Another Pizza Post

I know, I know. I'm in a rut. A pizza rut, in fact.

This time there's a slight difference though.

Instead of going back to last Sunday's pizza class this time I'm posting about a pizza I just made.

I didn't use the starter that I have bubbling away in my fridge though. Instead I used one of those Jiffy mixes to make my crust. What can I say? I was hungry and in a hurry.

This first picture is what it ended up looking like.


This next picture is the ingredients I used on my pizza. There was pizza sauce (out of a jar, I'm afraid) of course, as well as lots of cheese (Gouda, mozzarella, Parmesan, feta and some Mexican brand) plus some diced onions and garlic.


This is the Jiffy mix instructions. Just in case you want to try it for yourself. LOL

Mostly it's just flour and yeast. It doesn't really save any time or effort. The only reason I can see for getting the mix is if you don't want to bother with keeping yeast on hand. I have several packets in the 'fridge so I doubt I'll buy the mix again.

The mix did work fine so feel free to use it yourself if you'd like to make some pizza but don't want to bother measuring things out.


How's that look for a dough ball? That was one sticky mass of wet flour. I still have little balls of it in the hair on my wrists. I soaked my hands to no avail. I punched the dough down once more than suggested on the box. It just looked like it needed it!


Here's the dough after I spread it out on a pan. Kinda pasty white looking (Conan O'Brien look-a-like?) and definitely needing some oven time before I add the ingredients.


Okay. 3 minutes in that 425f oven and then I added all that cheese and other stuff. Looks and smells good but we definitely need some applied heat for all that cheese to get gooey and delicious.


Here 'tis after the oven for 16 minutes. The crust is pretty good but I should have salted the dough just a little. Oops. The blend of cheeses turned out wonderful. Yum.

That looks horrible.I'm so glad I don't have a weakness for delicious, savory, cheesey goodness, or this would have plunged my psyche into a voracious craving that may have swallowed several days and a few thousand calories. Thank goodness.

Evil photos. Just evil.
