Quick Homemade Pizza with Stuff Crust

1 - 13.8 oz thick crust refrigerated pizza dough
2 cloves of fresh garlic
1/2 cup Spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce
1 Bell pepper 1/2 red and 1/2 green or any color you choose chopped
10 - Mozzarella cheese sticks
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese ( I like the low fat) or more if you like real cheesy!
1/2 cup Red onions chopped
1/2 lb. Ground Sausage
Pineapple cut in chunks (I like using fresh cut pineapple) or buy a can already in chunks drained.
Italian seasoning
Parmesan cheese grated
2 tbs of olive oil
1 tbs of cornmeal
And Any topping you like for pizza!

Preheat the oven to 425.

I use a large baking stone to cook the pizza when I make this dish. Spread one tbs of olive oil on the baking stone and then sprinkle cornmeal on top. Cook the sausage until it is brown with no pink and set aside. Spread the dough out on the cooking stone and set the mozzarella sticks on the edges and then wrap the dough over them and seal them in. Use a garlic pressed and spread fresh garlic over the dough and make sure it is spread evenly. Pour 1 tbs of olive oil over the garlic and dough. Make sure it is spread evenly and on the dough that covers the mozzarella sticks. Now spread the spaghetti or pizza sauce evenly on top.

Now is the time to add the toppings. Spread the ground sausage, bell peppers, chopped onions and pineapple chunks then sprinkle basil and Italian seasoning. Cover the pizza with cheese. Cook for approximately 20 minutes or until the crust is brown and the cheese is melted. Remember it is Pizza so you can top it with any toppings that you personally like!

Use the Parmesan cheese on your own individual pieces to taste!

With my family it feeds 4 with one slice left over! Enjoy!

Tex-Mex Chicken Burrito Bowl

Tex-Mex Chicken Burrito Bowl Okay, I like to try different things, so I buy lots of food magazines for ideas! A very recent one this year 2023, Cooking Light magazine, had an assortment of different "power bowls" to make. I decided to try this one with chicken, but you can substitute any type of meat you would like in it, i.e. shredded beef, ground beef, and if you are daring, no meat substitutes! Well, that last one is not for me!  Below is the actual recipe I used. If you don't subscribe to Cooking Light, you are missing some great ideas of recipes for you and/or your family. When I saw this edition, I knew it was a game changer for me. I can take the recipe and modify it for the fussy eaters in my family and make it their own.  First, I made it "almost" like the recipe calls for to see what the results would be from everyone. My conclusion was, I loved it just the way it was, but not so with the others. So below is my suggestion on what to do so you don't

Morning Strawberry Protein Shake

Garden Strawberries So, I like strawberries, and it is the season for all of us back yard growers to start picking! I downsized my plot of plants, but I still have some to pick periodically as they ripen.  The local farms should be ready for the "you pick deals" from June - mid July now! There are quite a few growers in the PNW to choose from. A local favorite is the  Biringer Farm , you can check out their website for more information.  After, of course, the morning coffee, I will make my breakfast shake. It consists of one cup of unsweetened almond milk, unsweetened coconut milk, or unsweetened oat milk. Normally when watching calories, I will opt for almond or coconut milk. I also like at times to mix all three to make one full cup!  I will add one scoop of whey, my morning vitamin, and one cup of frozen strawberries. Sometimes I will add a frozen banana or frozen blueberries. My favorite is just using strawberries. I blend this for about a minute to make sure everything i

Cooking at Home During Quarantine

I like cooking, but I can't wait to be able to go out, sit at a table in a restaurant, order, eat, and enjoy family and friends. The only thing I won't like is the bill, but it will be so worth it. During this quarantine, if you have the funds and can help out your favorite local eateries, do so. They are struggling and take-out orders can help keep them in business.
