Don't Know What To Call This So Let's Just Call It Awesome

Not even gonna lie people.  This right here looks a hot mess.

But holy hell is it yummy.  What's even better is that it's super easy.


It's fast and very adaptable.  You could use a roll of biscuits or pizza dough or make it fresh.  Use a jar of sauce or make your own.  You can do pesto, ricotta, make it a lasagna pie.  Whatever you do, it's gonna be awesome.

 I will assume you know what I did already.  Fresh homemade pizza dough, from scratch meat sauce.  Start to finish...35 minutes.  You can't get pizza delivered in that amount of time and it takes much longer than that to make normal pizza, so if you got a hankering and don't want to wait this is the way to go.  Wanna know the very best thing about it?  You can pull it all apart like Monkey Bread.  It's Pizzonkey Bread.  Ha!  Named it.

Om nom nom nom nom nom nom. 

Pizzonkey Bread 

I did not use any recipes for this.  The 'recipe' here is approximate but will result in the above deliciousness.  Change it to make it work for you.

For the Pizza Dough 

2 1/2 Cups Flour, plus more as needed
 1 packet Instant Dry Yeast (roughly one tablespoon)
1/2 teaspoon Sugar
1 Cup Warm Water
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil (just eyeball it)
1 teaspoon Salt
Garlic, Onion Powder, Italian Seasoning

In the bowl of a stand mixer (or just a normal bowl if you're using elbow grease), mix the water, yeast and sugar.  Let it sit a minute or two, then add in everything else.  Mix it until it forms a solid ball and doesn't stick to the sides of the bowl anymore.  Just keep adding flour one tablespoon at a time until you get there.  Knead it a couple minutes until it's smooth.

For the Sauce 

1/4 lb (200g) Hamburger
1 small can Sliced Mushrooms
1/4 Red Pepper, sliced
1/2 Onion, sliced
Handful of Black Olives, cut in half
1 Box Diced Tomatoes
1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste 
Salt, Pepper, Garlic, Onion Powder, Sugar, Italian seasoning

Brown the burger, add in everything else and simmer for a few minutes to blend it together.

Preheat oven to 450F/230C

Pull off small hunks of dough and throw them into a baking dish.  This does not have to be pretty just chuck it in there.  Add the sauce, mix it all up if you want. I didn't.  Top with cheese and additional seasonings.  Bake 15-20 minutes until it's nice and puffy and the cheese is golden brown.  Om nom nom.

I neevr would have thought to add sugar to any pizza or pasta, how much do you add and why?

Jenna said...

The reason you add sugar is because yeast loves to eat sugar. Just a teaspoon or less will do ya. You could also use honey. It really aids in the yeast blooming and helps insure a nice rise.

Jenna,I'm just asking....In your opening line did you mean to say..This right here looks "like" a hot mess? Also,do you need to oil the baking dish at all? Pizzonkey Bread...Love the name!

P.S. Please don't curb your enthusiasm...just your cursing. :P

No Momma, I wrote exactly what I meant to write :P You don't have to oil it but it certainly wouldn't hurt just to be sure nothing sticks. And I barely cursed here geez. You're one to talk anyway, where do you think I got my mouth? :P
