Garlic, garlic, and more garlic!!

On the menu tonight.. pizza! I don’t know what it is about Sundays, but I always seem to want to make pizza on Sunday nights. So we got out the good ole bread maker and started on the dough. The crust on this one was exceptionally good this time. Here’s what was we put in the crust so you can see why.

12 oz. can of Bud Light
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. sugar
4 cups flour
2 tbsp. yeast
2 tbsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy  seasoning

The whole time the bread maker was doing it’s thing, it smelled sooooo good. You could really smell the garlic. I was really looking forward to this one. So once the dough was ready it was time for the toppings. We included: pepperoni, ham, bacon, olives, mushrooms and minced garlic. The cheese we used was mozzarella and a mix of cheddar and monterey jack. The oven was preheated and the pizza was ready to go in. Eric said, “Pick a number between 1 and 60.” I picked 40. So the timer was set for 18:40. Haha. Must have been a perfect number because the pizza came out just right. With the cheese slightly browned just the way I like it.

The pizza turned out just as I suspected. Delicious! You could really taste the garlic in the crust. And let me tell you, I am a huge fan of garlic. If I had cloves of garlic on hand I would have roasted them and threw those right on there too. Next time! I could also taste that it had a bit of a kick to it from the Mrs. Dash extra spicy seasoning and the pepper we added to the crust. I always add crushed red pepper on top of my pizza as well. What can I say, I’m a big fan of spiciness.

The crust was great this time. It had just the right amount of crunch on the bottom and yet it was soft on the inside. I have to say, this pizza had some girth to it too. And we even halved the dough to save for another time. Just look at that the loads of melted cheese on there! I’d say this pizza was a success. I can’t wait to have leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
