Pizza Party

Tonight we had a Pizza Party for the Junior High youth.

I made pizza dough and precooked rounds for them and then they put the ingredients on the pizza, mostly cheese and pepperoni.

The kids piled them so high with cheese that it took a long time for the pizzas to completely cook.  I actually took a little cheese (try over a cup) off of several of them before I put them in the oven.

I brought monster cookies for their dessert.  Eight kids ate 5 dozen cookies.

The kids seemed to have a great time.  The boy who cannot eat gluten loved the cookies as they have no flour.  He brought his own pizza crust, but declared it not very good.  His mom said she is going to experiment and try to find a crust that will work for him.

Pizza Dough

From my daughter Nancy.

2 C flour

2 Tablespoons oil

1/2 tsp. salt

2 Tablespoons yeast

Add enough water and mix to make dough a little wet.

You can use it right away, but it works even better if you can let it rest in the bowl covered with a cloth for 30 minutes  (which I did).

I usually rolls out the rounds and then precook them a little before I put on the pizza sauce and other ingredients.

Oven 425  usually 20 minutes for final pizzas

Monster Cookies

1 C brown sugar

1 C white sugar

1/4 lb. butter which is 1 stick

3 eggs

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. light corn syrup (everyone wants to know why this ingredient is there.  My guess is that this gives the cookies a little shine.  I don’t really know, but I always put it in.)

1/2 C peanutbutter (creamy or chunky)

4 1/2 C oats.  (If you use  gluten free oats, you have a gluten free cookie).

Mix all together and then add

1 C chocolate chips

1 C. M & Ms

Mix well.

Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes.  Let cool on sheet for additional minute and then cook on racks.

This is actual half of the original recipe.

Makes about 4 1/2 – 5 dozen cookies.
