Garden Pizza – THEIR way

We started with homemade pizza dough – we used The Essential Baking Cookbook, page 256, to make the dough.  We followed the recipe exactly.  If you’d like the recipe please email us and we’ll forward it.  The reason I am not including it here, is because there are so many dough recipes already I didn’t want to add something basic.  IF and WHEN we alter the recipe or change it, I’ll include those directions.

1 package refrigerated pizza crust (or your own homemade one)
½ cup mayo
½ package dried ranch seasoning mix
1 garlic clove pressed
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup coarsely chopped broccoli
½ cup diced red bell pepper
1 medium carrot sliced
½ cup sliced black olives
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese

1. mix your mayo and ranch seasonings
2. roll out pizza dough and spread the mayo mixture on pizza, ½ inch from sides
3. top with ½ of mozzarella, sprinkle with sliced, chopped veggies and top with remaining mozzarella and parmesan
4. bake at 425 for ~22 mins or until desired doneness

Spinach & Chicken Lasagna Stacks

7 lasagna noodles
3 tbsp butter
1/3 cup flour
1 ¾ cup broth
1 ¼ cup whole milk
¼ pepper
½ small red pepper (cut up in ¼ in pieces)
4oz gruyere cheese (or similar) shredded (~1cup)
4 cups baby spinach leaves (or shredded adult spinach)
2 cups shredded meat of your choice (recommends chilcken)

1. cook lasagna noodles as directed (~10-12mins)
2. while noodles cook, melt butter in 3qt saucepan, whisk in flour until smooth
3. whisk in broth, milk, pepper – stir occasionally
4. add red pepper and boil for ~2mins
5. stir in cheese, meat and spinach – heat through and remove from heat
6. cut each noodle into 3 equal parts (not lengthwise, cut like you are making rectangles)
7. place one “rectangle” of a noodle on your plates, top with ¼ cup of your saucepan mixture, place another noodle on top, again top with ¼ cup of your mixture
8. you continue stacking until your preferred size… or the recipe calls for this recipe creating 4 servings, so dish out onto 4 plates (you’ll have one stack/plate) each stack should have 5 noodles – and you should end with the chicken mixture on top
9. serve and enjoy
