We have a bit of an addiction to homemade pizza. The key for us is the homemade crust. We start with this recipe:

We throw the ingredients into the breadmaker which will make the perfect dough in 90 minutes. We actually cut this dough in half once out of the bread machine so we are forced to eat pizza two nights in a row.

The other night I used 2.5 cups all purpose flour and 0.5 cups whole wheat flour.

We roll out of the dough, sprinkle it with corn meal and bake it in the oven for about 20 minutes or so before we put on our toppings.

We try to flip the crust once during the process. It becomes brown around the edges before we even put the toppings on. This particular crust was not our best specimen but still tasted good.

Toppings are endless but we like to use whatever we have in the house. Today that consisted of sun-dried tomatoes and herbs.

Plus cheese of course.

It then bakes for another 10 minutes or so, just until we think it is done!

I think it tastes so much healthier than take-out pizza places. Someday when we have a bigger oven I plan on getting a pizza stone so that we can further perfect our recipe. Yum!


My awesome Aunt sent me this cute apron!

Isn’t it adorable?!

I can totally see myself as one of those women who wears an apron completely for the “look” of it. I think I was this woman in another life:


I love her.


I have another day off today. I am about to head to the gym for some body pump. I am officially addicted. I have always felt that I have strong legs but my upper body strength is definitely something to laugh at. I literally could not do a single push up for most of my life. Now I feel like I am finally starting to improve and I think it will help with all other areas of my fitness.

I should do a before and after picture of my “guns”. 🙂
