If you don’t succeed the first time, try, try again!!
I have been on the hunt for the best pizza dough recipe, and I do believe I have finally found a darn near perfect one. . . . I can’t guarantee it is the best one, but after I try every recipe out there, I’ll let you know!
As you can see, I’ve tried a fair number of recipes already:
KG’s Homemade Pizza Dough (another great option!)
But tonight’s recipe took the top award thus far!
- organic extra virgin olive oil
- Muir Glen Organic Pizza Sauce
- seasonings: salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano
- organic, fresh baby spinach
- organic fresh basil
- sliced tomatoes
- fresh mozzarella cheese
This is my absolute favorite combination of toppings!!
Now I just need to figure out how to get the dough a lot thinner!
I also had some of this Italian soda, but I forgot how sweet these beverages are! Too sweet even for my sweet tooth!
Now backing up to this morning. . . .
My breakfast (pre-run) was a homemade English muffin with peanut butter and banana slices.
About an hour later, I was out the door for a 6 mile run that I completed in 54 minutes.
It was slow going today. I was feel pretty sluggish and the snow made the conditions feel like I was running on the beach.
When I got home, I spent a good 20 minutes stretching, foam rolling, and trying to massage my tight muscles.
After a shower, I made myself some recovery food: protein + carbs!
And for some carbs: a piece of toast with a little butter!
Craig and I then went to watch his cousin compete in a Jr. ROTC drill competition for high school. I haven’t had much exposure to ROTC or the drill competition, but it reminded me a lot of marching band–minus the instruments. Yes, I was a band nerd. . . and darn proud of it!!
Afterward, we picked up some essentials and food for the week at Target and Fred Meyer.
A late lunch included a large salad piled high with: organic baby spinach + red bell pepper, carrots (locally grown), mushrooms, olive oil, honey, and kosher salt, plus a little cream cheese off to the side for some protein.
Craig and I are spending the rest of the evening watching the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
What are you favorite pizza toppings?
