Pizza and breadstick recipes

I pretty much followed the directions, but made the dough in my bread machine.

For the pizza, I covered the dough with a small jar of pesto sauce, used a bag of turkey pepperoni, diced up an onion, covered with Parmesan and mozzarella and put olives on top. I let it bake half way and pulled the parchment out for a crisper crust.


The garlic bread is brushed with butter, sprinkled with 6 chopped up garlic cloves, then sprinkled with a dry garlic bread mixture I bought for 99¢ at the NPS store. The pepperoni was 69¢ and 2 pounds of mozzarella was $3.99 😉 I put the cheese on lightly as I wanted this to be more snacky.

For lunch I made Chinese cabbage salad. I finely sliced a head of Chinese nappa cabbage and grated a handful of carrots and put these in a big bowl. Then I used my fist to smash up a package of ramen noodles and added that.

In a separate bowl I mixed together 1/3 cup olive oil, 2 Tbsp rice vinegar, a tsp of sesame oil, 2 Tbsp turbinado sugar plus some salt and pepper. I cut up a package of deli mesquite turkey and mixed all together. The bowls were topped with almond slices.

At the NPS store the turkey was 50¢, 2 lbs of baby carrots were 79¢.

After lunch we had bowls of salted caramel with pretzels and chocolate ice cream ($1.49 at the NPS store). Drizzled over the top was some honey caramel sauce I made a week or so ago.

In a saucepan cook 1/2 cup honey,1 stick butter, 3/4 cup brown sugar. Stir constantly and boil for 2 minutes. Add and stir in 1 can of sweetened condensed milk. Store in fridge.
