A great recipe from one of my favorite cooks. I love the creaminess of the chili and the mixture of many kinds of beans.

Pizza Minus the Box

Great recipe for those who are allergic to tomatoes, but still love pizza.

When I was diagnosed with a food allergy to tomatoes, I thought my life would never include pizza again.  It was a sad day in the jennirific world, but luckily it was a short lived break up.  Discovering a wide variety of ways to concoct alternative pizza creations impossible to eat from a box put Pizza Night right back in the weekly rotation! 

To get the Jennirific Pizza Party rolling, let’s start with the all important crust. This dough acts as a vehicle to the flavors of the toppings; great dough equals a great slice. If you are super cool and have a stand mixer, please utilize it and know the whole time that I am green with envy ;) 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Tbsp Dry Active Yeast
  • 1 Tsp Sugar
  • 1 Cup Warm Water
  • 3 Cup Flour
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 2 Tsp Olive Oil

 

Method

In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water and let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.

Place the dough blade on your food processor. Add Flour and Salt and pulse a few times to aerate. Slowly add the yeast mixture to the flour with the food processor on and mixing. Allow each addition of the yeast mixture to be fully absorbed before adding more.

Continue processing until the dough forms a ball and cleans the sides of the bowl, about 1 minute, then process for 1 minute more.
