I went to Walmart the other morning, which isn't much different than most mornings, and took pictures documenting my time there. Taking pictures along the way was so much fun and it didn't bother anyone in the least little bit...they all know us by name. I'll share that in another post. I ended up buying zucchini, Nestle Semi Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips, Hershey's Chocolate Syrup and more Cocoa. This is the result of my shopping trip. Are you thinking a trip is in order, now?

Friday night is pizza night for us. We love it! It is a time when we are all in the kitchen, making our favorites or creating new ones. My oldest son wanted a white pizza. We came up with a yummy Alfredo one! It has a thick and fluffy, crust that has a hint of garlic and parmesan cheese. Next time I'll cook it on a baking sheet and cut into squares. Feel free to add any and everything you wish. It will be amazing! I adapted this recipe from the back of a package of Fleischmann's Pizza Crust Yeast. I love it!
What you need
2 cups King Arthur Premium Whole Wheat Flour, more if needed
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoon ground garlic
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 packet Fleischmann's Pizza Crust Yeast
2/3 cup very warm water, 120 - 130 degree F
1/4 to 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
3 Tablespoons oil
1/2 cup Alfredo Sauce or Spread, homemade or bought. Use more or less, you decide.
1/2 to 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, homemade or bought
your favorite toppings, optional
What to do
Grease pizza pan or baking sheet with sides.
Put 1 cup whole wheat flour, sugar, garlic, parsley and yeast in a large bowl. Whisk together.
Stir in very warm water and oil.
Stir in parmesan.
Add more flour, a little at the time, until a soft dough is formed.
I kneaded dough with a fork sticky and adding the flour.
Stir, knead with fork, add more flour, stir, knead with fork.....you get the idea.
After dough is soft, turn out on floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic adding a little dog at the time if needed.
I kneaded the dough with my hand in the bowl.
Stretch and pat dough to fill pizza pan or baking sheet.
Top with Alfredo Sauce or Spread.
Top with mozzarella cheese and any additional toppings you like.
Let pizza sit for 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F the last 10 minutes, more or less, of resting. You know how long it takes your oven to preheat.
Bake on bottom rack for 8 minutes, check and turn around cooking another 4 to 7 minutes if needed. Crust will be very soft and fluffy.
