Pizza! Pizza!

I came across the idea to make my own pizza dough the other day while reading the Macs blog. I'm trying to do more hands on activities with Avery, one to spend more one on one time with him and two to work on following directions. He's always wanting to help me do stuff, so I thought he might enjoy making pizza.

I made the pizza dough from the recipe Jess used, which she got from Pioneer Woman. The directions were easy to follow and it was a very simple recipe. Avery even helped me make it. The recipe says its best to let the dough sit in the refrigerator for 3-4 days, so I made it on Thursday night and we made pizza on Sunday night.
After rolling the dough out, we spread pizza sauce all over. Avery enjoyed this part.

We then added our toppings. I used mushrooms, black olives, turkey peperoni and regular peperoni, pineapple, and mozzarella cheese.
Mimi was impressed at our cooking skills!
This was our beautiful pizza before we cooked it.
We baked the pizza at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. And let me tell you, it was DELISH!
