Domestic Diva, Take Two

If you read my blog post from yesterday, you learned about my first endeavor with cooking from scratch. The herb roasted chicken, rough mashed potatoes, and green beans were so yummy and fun to cook that mom and I decided I needed to make a second dinner tonight. So after another quick trip to HEB, I had all the ingredients I needed for homemade pizza!

First, I rolled out the dough on a pan. Then I put a small amount of olive in my hands and lightly spread it over the dough. After sprinkling some rosemary, thyme, and chopped onions on the dough, I put in the oven for just a few minutes to get it slightly warmed and golden.

After I pulled the pan out of the oven, I added pizza sauce, turkey pepperonis, lean sausage (previously browned on the stove), sun-dried tomatoes, jalapenos, and mixed cheese. This completed pizza was put into the oven until the cheese was melted.

And voila! The finished product. I cut in into square pieces and Luke ate 8 of them! I guess this means I did a good job. :)

I also made a second smaller pizza the exact same way, but instead of sausage and pepperonis, I used some of the leftover chicken breast from last night. This will make a great healthy lunch to take to work tomorrow. I'm pretty excited!

{And of course, making any meal is worth it when I have such a cute dish washer to clean up after me. Love him!}
