doesn't that sound good?
so Welcome to Scrumtrulescent Saturdays!
And I would LOVE to see any yummy recipes you might have too.
So link them up at the end :)


So today, I will share with you my favorite pizza ever:

Green Mountain Pizza
don't you love the heart shaped wonder?

So I got this recipe from my good friend Jaime.  She actually invited us over when we first moved to San Antonio.  We ate this pizza and both my husband and I were in love.
Anyways, here's the recipe today.

Ingredients:
1/4 c Alfredo cause (any kind BUT Ragu)
2 chicken breast halves (8 oz) cooked and shredded (Cut chicken into cubes and then cook in 1-2 tbsp of bacon greese. )
16 oz. Pizza crust (see below)
1/2 lb bacon, cut into 1/2 in. pieces
10 large fresh spinach leaves
2 c. grated mozzarella cheese
4-6 green onions, sliced diagonally
2 c. grated Swiss cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread Alfredo souce evenly over pizza crust. Arrange spinach leaves over sauce. Add green onions, shredded chicken and bacon. Sprinkle Cheeses over top. Bake for 15 minutes or until bubbly. Serves 4 huge portions. (this pizza is very filling!)

Here's the best pizza dough you will ever have!
Pizza Dough from Bobbi Johnson

4 c. flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. instant yeast
1 1/2 c. hot water

Combine yeast and water. Set aside. Combine flour, sugar, and salt. Add yeast mixture. Knead for 10 minutes and let rise until double. Spread out on pizza pan. Add sauce and toppings. Preheat oven at 350 degrees, bake for 20-30 minutes or until cheese melts.

So here's a few tips for you:

cut the bacon into 2 inch or less pieces and cook.

 Save the grease for the chicken!
 Place the chicken in the bacon grease to brown.  Set both aside for the pizza.


Now the dough...I highly recommend this instant yeast.  works like a charm every time!
 Follow directions in the recipe.  Mix yeast and hot water first.  Combine the dry ingredients then slowly combine the two.
 I use these kneading attachments.  
Don't use your normal mixing attachments.  
You need to knead the dough..duh!..say that 3 times fast!
 And what kitchen wouldn't be complete with out a "empty all drawers" attack from your 16 month old during cooking time?..oh that rascal!
 Let the dough rise for about 15 minutes.  I let that sit and then get the rest of the ingredients ready, like cut up the onions and grate the cheese.  Saves time!

Anyways, after all your efforts, you will have a delicious meal!
