We made pizza.sylvie said:I've gotten so many great dinner ideas from this thread and now that we are full swing into summer, I'm looking for more!
Tonight I brought home a pizza. Someone please inspire me with what you made for dinner!
I have a little tip for everyone which has been a lifesaver for us. I make 2 batches of pizza dough. I roll each batch into a short fat log and cut it into 8 pieces for individual pizzas, then roll then out and pop each one into the oven at 400 for a few minutes to cook it.
Then when they all cool I split the batch in two, one gallon bag of crusts goes into the freezer and 1 gal bag into the fridges. I also make my sauce using 2 -28 oz cans (1 crushed toms and 1 sauce, garlic and an 8oz can of paste & herbs) I also split that in half...1 in the freezer and one in the fridge. I buy a large thing of mozzarella from costco, shred it in the food processor and bag up for the fridge & freezer.
Crazy night when we are all looking for something quick, we ALWAYS have pizza fixings in the fridge. Super quick and easy and no take out expense.
Edited to add...I had planned to make chicken pot pie for dinner last night but never got to it, so that will be on tonight's menu.
