Pizza and Stromboli with kids

I had such a great time with my daughter and my nephew making pizza’s and Sausage Stromboli. I didn’t want to spend the money on pizza delivery so we went to rent a movie at the redbox and we made our own pizza and of course we added bacon. To tell you the truth it tasted much better to.

I have enclosed the pictures and the recipes for you to enjoy! Have fun and good eating!


Dough= 3 cups all-purpose flour, ¼ cup of dried milk powder, 1 envelope fast-rising dry yeast (2 ¼ teaspoons), 2 teaspoons sugar,1 teaspoon salt,1 cup very warm water (115 degrees), 2 tablespoons olive oil

Method; Mix flour, milk powder, yeast, sugar and salt in bowl. Stir in very warm water and olive oil until dough forms. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Knead 10 minutes.

Cover; let rest 20-30 minutes in a warm area. After it’s grown, punch it down and wait another 15-20 minutes. Then from into the pizza shape you would like.

ImageSeasoned Tomato Sauce: 1/2-cup no-salt-added tomato sauce/or crushed tomatoes, 1 clove garlic, minced; 1/4 teaspoon dried Italian herb seasoning

Method; Tomato Sauce: Combine tomato sauce, garlic and Italian seasoning in small bowl. Shred Cheeses, chop veggies, Etc


Sausage Stromboli

Ingredients: 1 Pizza dough, 1 tablespoons olive oil, 1-pound mild Italian sausage, remove from the casings, 1 cup diced yellow onions, 1 teaspoon chopped garlic, 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, ¼ cup chopped fresh basil leaves, 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves, 2 cups shredded mozzarella, 1 egg plus 2 teaspoons water, beaten together

 Preheat oven to 375 degree F
Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook until browned and no pink is left, about 5 minutes. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are softened, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove the skillet from the heat and add the basil and parsley, stirring to combine. Cool the sausage mixture completely.


Flour a surface. Roll the dough into a 10” by 12” rectangle. Spread the cooled sausage mixture over the dough, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges.

Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the sausage. Brush the 1-inch border of the dough with the egg wash.

Place the bread, seam side down, on the prepared baking sheet and brush the top of the bread with the remaining egg wash.

Bake the sausage bread for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through. Allow bread to stand 10 to 15 minutes before slicing. To serve, slice the bread into 1-inch pieces and serve warm.
