Manic Monday Meals ~ No Yeast Pizza Dough + BBQ Chicken Pizza

Manic Monday it is, this weekend even though we barely went out was busy with us cleaning and going threw items. Today my parents will take the kids to the fair and I'm going to meet up with them after work. It's going to be busy busy around here!

As many of you know Pizza is Friday night around here and I love to find out different types of pizza. The recipe called to use a refrigerator pizza dough but I couldn't resist trying this recipe and I'm glad I did it was super yummy :).
No Yeast Pizza Dough
2 1/2 c. flour
2 3/4 tsp. baking powder (if using baking soda use half and omit salt)
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. oil
3/4 to 1 c. water

Mix dry ingredients. add 3/4 cup water and oil. Stir until it forms a ball. If dough is stiff, add more water.

The dough will be soft, not sticky. Knead on a floured surface for 3-4 minutes.

Bake at 400°F for 15-25 minutes.

ALEXIS NOTES: I used whole wheat flour and it tasted delightful.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
BBQ Chicken Pizza (found on Ma, What's for Dinner)
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and diced
2 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
8-10 slices bacon, cooked and broken into pieces
1 small onion chopped
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup ketchup
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon dried mustard
1/4 cup brown sugar.
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
pizza dough or one store bought dough
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and sliced thin
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
In a medium saucepan heat olive oil over medium heat. Add half of the onions and allow to soften, about 5 minutes. Add in garlic and cook for an additional minute or two. Season with salt and pepper. Deglaze the pan with the vinegar being sure to scrap up all the good browned bits on the bottom.
Next add in your ketchup, tomato sauce, mustard, molasses, and Worcestershire sauce. Turn the sauce down and allow to simmer for about 10 minutes (let it simmer while you get everything else ready.)
Lay out your pizza dough and stretch it to fit a baking sheet. Stab it with a fork a few times (so it won't puff up in places) and bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and spread a thin layer of sauce leaving a one inch border around the dough. Arrange your chicken, mushrooms and onions (if desired) neatly around the pizza dough. Then arrange jalapeno (I only put this on a little edge of the pizza). Sprinkle with chopped cilantro. Top with plenty of cheese and sprinkle the bacon over top. Return to the oven and bake 8-10 more minutes or until it is heated through and the cheese is melted.
ALEXIS NOTES: I used turkey bacon, only had apple cider vinegar, skipped the mushrooms and the jalapeƱo pepper. Used the whole wheat pizza dough :)

  1. Wow looks lovely. I know that eating dairy and gluten free foods can be better as I have suffered with IBS since having youngling.
    Every now and then I have to have a vegetarian, dairy and wheat free diet to balance things out. It's nice to see inspiring home made receipes like this that I can try at myself.

    Or you could come live with us for a while and help stock our freezer with your fabulous meals? ;-)
    Take care hun, KC xx

  2. What texture does the no-yeast pizza crust have? I always imagine those being more cracker-like than chewy.

  11. Excellent blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?

    I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any suggestions? Cheers!

  12. Anonymous - Thanks! I say keep posting and make sure it is fun things that ppl want to read. Not to post just because you need to put something up. End a post with a question will always help get comments.

    Make sure your name is listed above instead of coming up anonymous that way ppl can click your name to go to your site. If you leave it in a comment like that ppl don't want to click for free of a virus.

    I like blogger, wordpress is nice also. You can pay someone to design your blog which helps to. Expect to pay $50 to $150 for that.

    Photos are always a plus :)
