Today I made pizza dough for dinner. We had actually decided as a family that we would settle for breakfast for dinner first thing in the morning, because I had a nice package of country sausage to use up. I had been thinking about it all day, and didn’t really want to make breakfast for dinner again so soon. We just had it a few days ago I believe. So I did my best to think of something better.
Also, we got an unexpected free dairy drop off today, I got 5 lbs of sour cream and a half gallon of half and half. I am still trying to figure out how to use the last half and half drop off. I had to think of some creative ways to use the half and half today and I think I did pretty well.
I wanted to play with dough today, so I started the day off by making some Old Fashioned Cream Scones. I used the recipe from my old 1979 Sunset Magazine “bread” bible I call it, and just changed up a few things. I used half and half instead and a whole lot more sugar than it called for. And I even added some strawberries defrosted from my frozen Schwans supply.
Here are some pictures of the scones.
After making scones with 2 cups of flour and seeing that I only had about 6 cups left, I decided to make pizza. Last time I made pizza I successfully used some country sausage for a topping for one of them and this time I decided to use it for both.
I took a “puck” of frozen mushrooms out of the freezer to defrost. I froze some a while back to preserve them and they have been saving my ever since. I made a pizza dough with 4 cups of flour from my experience I know fairly well how to do this without a set recipe. For today I used some half and half in the dough.
I diced an onion and diced the defrosted mushrooms. I added it to some country sausage and baked it until cooked while my pizza dough was rising in the room. I also roasted some Roma tomatoes sliced with seasonings on them. After the sausage was cooked I added Italian Seasonings to them also.
I used my homemade pizza sauce on the stretched dough and added the ground sausage mix and then tomatoes and cheese and more seasonings. They both turned out great. The boys love my pizza dough now, no matter how I change it up.
Here are some pictures.
Hope you all enjoyed another day in the boho kitchen~ love boho mom!
