Pizzly's Dino Stylin' Pizza!

Well, last night Pizzly decided that Mama Bear wanted pizza for dinner.   The only problem was, we're broke, which is no big deal because we're always broke.  We're parents.  Do they come in any other way than broke?

Anyway, I told Pizzly that if he really thought Mama Bear wanted pizza, then he had to make it with me and pick out what went on top.

This was fun!

And, after some deliberation we came up with this!

I have to give the little man props here!
This is good ass pizza!!!
Pizzly's Dino Stylin' Pizza!

Here's what you need:

For the Dough:

1 scrubbed up and clean toddler
1 large mixing bowl
1 rubber scraper is handy
1 largish kitchen towel
enough room to work with a toddler
1 1/3 cups of water
2 Tablespoons of Olive oil
a couple pinches of salt
4 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of yeast
1 table spoon of garlic powder (optional)

Now, if you have never made pizza dough with a little one you have to try it at least once.  It could possibly be the most fun you'll ever have standing/sitting.  

(Eeww!!! That was kind of gross wasn't it?!)

Ok, moving on, First thing you need to do is dump all the ingredients in the mixing bowl and mix it all up

Now, dump the mixture on your work surface so you and the little one/s can knead the dough thoroughly.  It takes me about 10-15 minutes to do a decent job of it with the Pizzmeister and it is hilarious fun!  (W/O the Pizzmeister it is a lot quicker)

After the dough is uniformly moist and what not roll it into a ball shape and drop it in the mixing bowl.

Cover it all with a moistened towel and set it aside to set for about an hour or so.

Now, you can prepare the toppin's!

For the toppings of Pizzly's Dino Stylin' Pizza You need: 

1 thoroughly scrubbed up toddler (optional I guess)
1 oven preheated to 450 degrees
1 fry pan
1 baking sheet or pizza stone or whatever
2 cups of what ever kind of cheese you want (we used plain jane mozzarella)
2 cups of mixed vegetables
1 cup of sliced and diced mushrooms
4 tablespoons or so of Ranch Dressing
1 tablespoon or so of Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons of garlic powder
6 chicken patties cut into fun little dino shapes
2 tablespoons of oil

First thing first,  fry up the veggies in the fry pan over medium heat to get most of the extra moisture out and add the chicken patties for a few minutes.  Just heat them up until they are good and hot on the outside not burned or  heated all the way through.  Remember they are going to go into a 450 degree oven.

Take this stuff off of the heat.

Now, while that is cooling grab the dough and roll it out to fit your pizza pan or baking sheet or whatever you are using

Once you have the dough the way you want it on the sheet or whatever sprinkle on and spread out the oil to cover the entire crust.

Now, sprinkle on the garlic powder and Parmesan cheese and over that spread out the ranch dressing as evenly as you can.

Now add the mixed veggies and mushrooms.  Put the cheese over it all and put the cutesy chicken patty crap on top.  (For some reason kids love that kind of stuff)

Now you are almost done.  Just put the pizza in a 450 degree oven for 12 minutes and voila!

You have your very own Pizzly Dino Stylin' Pizza!

Try it out and let me know how you like it...

P.s. You don't really have to let the Dough set before you roll it out or toss it.  It just makes it easier to roll/toss if you do.
