Margarita Pizza

So last night we threw a big bash for a great friend on mine who has decided to make a career change!  Her going away party was great – its always nice to socialize with the people you spend 40 hours a week with outside of work & get to know them better…Hopefully they feel the same way about me 🙂

Last nights dinner consisted of Burgers/Hot dogs – Pasta Salad/Green Salad – Cupcakes & Oatmeal cookies – ALL DELICIOUS!

The night before, I made margarita pizza & it was delicious!  The pizza dough was made with the Kitchen Aid mixer:

Ingredients:

  • 1 Package of active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (105-115 degrees F)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 1/2 – 3 1/2 cups of flour – I use 2/3 wheat flour 1/3 white flour
  • 1 TBS cornmeal

Dissolve yeast in warm water in warmed mixer bowl.  Add salt, olive oil, and 2 1/2 cups of flour.  Mix together for 1 minute

Add remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time and then knead the dough.  I’ve always made this dough with my mixer & I go back and forth from the stir speed to speed 2.

Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to grease top.  Cover.  Let rise in warm place, free from draft, about 1 hour or until doubled in size.  Brush 14-inch pizza pan with oil.  Sprinkle with cornmeal.

Toppings – Chopped Tomatoes, Basil, and Mozzeralla cheese blended with EVOO.

Bake on 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown….

How delicious does this look?!?!?!?

I hope everyone has a great day!  It’s almost the weekend and it feels great to know that its going to be beach weather on Saturday…here I come – stay clear cause the white lady who has barely seen the sun is hittin the beach!!!
