pizza and wings..



pete and i don't much watch the superbowl but we love the food.. i always make pizza and wings.. this year it was only pete and i so didn't go over board like i have been known to do in the past.

prep time:  umm awhile
cooking time: depends on what it is *wink*
servings: alot of people

Ingredients:

dough - lower calorie (adapted from christine ferrare's big bowl of love)
  • 1 package of active yeast
  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. of agave
  • 1 tsp. of sea salt
  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/4 up warm water, at 110 degrees (any less the yeast won't activate if gets hotter then 130 it will kill the yeast)
pizza sauce

  • 2 cans of diced tomatoes italian style
  • 1/2 can of tomato paste

cook in a saute pan on medium to low for about 2 hours until all liquid is evaporated...

toppings (i made 4 different kinds)

marghertia pizza

  • slices tomatoes
  • 1 ball of mozzarella
  • fresh basil

bbq chicken pizza

  • bbq chicken ( for one pizza i poached 2 chicken tenders then diced up and tossed with sweet baby rays bbq sauce)
  • bbq sauce
  • roasted garlic (cut the top off your garlic drizzle olive oil wrap in foil cook at 400 for about 30 minutes)
  • purple onion
  • cilantro
  • 1/2 bag of grated mixed cheddar cheese (i used krafts 4 cheese blend)

spicy italian pizza

  • 1 spicy italian sausage casing removed (brown until cooked remove from pan set aside)
  • garlic
  • jalapenos
  • 1/2 bag of grated pizza cheese
to make the dough.. in food processor bowl add yeast, warm water and agave.. allow mixture to activate.. it will get foamy takes about 3-5 minutes.. insert dough blade add flour and salt. pulse mixture once then add olive oil. pulse mixture until it forms a ball.. it will start to "clean" the side of the bowl, it only takes about 30 seconds to knead the dough.. the dough might be slightly sticky.. coat the dough lightly with olive oil and put in a large bowl, cover with a towel or plastic wrap.  once its doubled in size, around 45 minutes or so you are ready to make your pizza.. cut into 4 equal parts.. preheat oven to 500 with a pizza stone in the oven.. roll out dough on a floured surface to make a 10 inch pizza then slide on to a piece of parchment paper and top with  your favorite toppings.. pick up parchment and pizza and slide gently onto pizza stone, about 4 minutes into baking pull out parchment paper (it might catch fire if you don't).. continue baking until lightly brown and cheese is melted..

chicken wings:

a bag of frozen chicken wings
pam

preheat oven to 400 degrees (f)..take a cookie sheet, cover with foil, put a rack over foil.. spray with pam.. arrange your chicken wings on rack spray with pam.. cook for about 30 minutes then check if getting nicely brown flip them over and cook another 30 minutes..

dipping sauce..

buffalo - we just use franks or you can use tobasco and butter
bbq - we like sweet baby rays I always add a little chipolte tobasco to it
honey cayenne - in a microwave bowl add 1 tblsp. of honey, 1/2 tblsp. of vinegar, 2 tsp. of cayenne and zap for 30 seconds in the microwave.. it's super yummy..
