Take Back the Kitchen
Do you have a kid whose favorite foods are hot dogs and pizza? Well Alma Schneider shares how to combine them to make this fun and unique recipe!
Easy and Delicious No-Nitrate Hot Dog Pizza:
Pizza Crust: (can also just buy prepared dough at supermarketrs or your local pizzeria)
1 and 1/4 cup white flour (add 2 TBS more flour later) Can use whole wheat flour for half of dough
3/4 tsp yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 tsp salt
Mix above ingredients until fully combined. Then knead for 5 minutes and add more of the 2 TBS of flour so that it is not so sticky.
Make it into a ball and place in a bowl that is greased with olive oil. Cover and leave for 1 1/2 hours.
When it has risen (should be about twice the size), roll out to about 12"X 6" and lay on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet-OR separate into individual pizzas.
Place in a preheated 500 degree oven and bake for 8 minutes.
Shredded Mozzarella cheese
No nitrate beef hot dogs or any kind , chopped
optional: other types of cheeses, no sauce, chopped basil, crushed garlic, chopped dried figs, etc.-whatever you like!
Once pizza dough is cooked, take it out of the oven and spread the cheese on top while it is hot so it melts. Top the cheese with the sauce and then top with the chopped hot dogs. Place in oven until cheese melts. Cut and eat immediately. Enjoy!
