Saturday Night you could always make....
Gourmet Whole Grain Pizza
Makes 2 pizzas
1 1/4 cup warm water
2 Tablespoons dry yeast
1 1/2 Tablespoon raw sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup ground oats
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Mix the ingredients above in a bread maker (on a "dough" setting), in a kitchen mixer, or by hand, if you want a really good upper-body workout. :) Add more or less water if needed to get the consistency right...you can always "dry it up" a bit with some extra flour.
Flour a cutting board by dusting some whole-wheat flour on top. Knead the dough until it is even in texture and consistency, then cut the dough in half. Roll out one half into a circle to fit your greased pizza pan (or cookie sheet). Do the same with the other half of the dough.
Let the two pans of pizza crust rise in your preheated oven for about 20 minutes.
After the dough has risen, top each pizza with the following:
Tomato sauce (about 3/4 cup)
Sprinkling of mozzarella cheese
Cut up vegetables of your choice (tomatoes, onions, peppers, etc)
Fresh herb leaves (basil, oregano, rosemary, etc)
Let the pizzas bake at 350F for 16 - 20 minutes (switching pizzas from top/bottom and vice versa, halfway through the baking), or until the bottom of the crust is crispy. You can check this by lifting up the side of the pizza with a spatula.
A serving size of 2 slices, with a side of greek salad & spinach greens, makes a delicious Nutritarian dinner treat! Enjoy!
On Sunday you could make! Turkey/Lean Ground meat/Sweet italian sausage Meatballs! The original recipe was an idea from Rachael Ray, but over time I've made it my own and it's a winner to my family! * I make enough so we can freeze them *But here is the Rachael Ray Recipe!
I hope this helps!!! Have a Great Weekend!
