Artisan Pizza in 5 Minutes

I love the Artisan Bread in 5-Minutes a Day series.  I did actually buy the first in their book series and it worked just like they said it would.  The trick is to follow the directions exactly and also use a WEIGHT measurement on your flour rather than a cups method. 

With my ripped up kitchen, I currently can't get into my fridge and dishwasher simultaneously because our washer in in the middle of the room, just barely hooked up--after two weeks, I was running out of scrubs!  Thankfully, Dan is working on the new laundry/mudroom area and will hopefully be done in the next week or so--enough for me to declutter the kitchen some.

I have been craving some good, home-cooked meals, which is hard to accomplish with a ripped up kitchen. Here's a little incentive! ;)  An awesome home-cooked pizza....

 

And here's their Olive Oil Dough link on their blog that they talked about.  Soooo easy and whip it up and keep it in the fridge for up to two weeks.  :)  Enjoy!
