This time of year brings along several of my favorite things:
● Winter Squash
● Bright, Crisp Mornings
● Cozy sweaters and slippers
● The Holidays!!
And of course, FOOTBALL! (Yes, there is a slight hint of sarcasm here!) Now don't get me wrong... I do enjoy football, especially college football, but you know....
Any who, this weekend was dedicated to Football! I promised A that we would just relax and watch football this weekend. So I whipped up a few Football Friendly Munchies for us to enjoy.
1 Trader Joe's Pizza Dough
1 cup Pizza sauce
1 Green Bell Pepper
1 bag Daiya cheese
hand full of flour (or cornmeal)
Green chili to taste
|Place Trader Joe's Pizza Dough on a lightly floured area. Let rise for 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 450˚ (Leave pizza stone in oven to warm so the dough will not stick while cooking). |
|Thinly slice peppers and any other toppings you choose.|
|Gently knead pizza dough until it is evenly spread across your pizza stone. Distribute pizza sauce around the dough until it is covered.|
|Top the pizza with goodies of your choice and Daiya Cheeze! We had Bell Peppers and Green Chili.|
|Bake for 18-20 minutes.|
And no Football spread is complete without Nachos!
1 Medium bag Tortilla Chips
1 Medium Jalapeno pepper
1 Bag Boca Ground Crumbles
1 Bag Daiya Cheeze
1 Can Pinto Beans (Black beans would be tasty too!)
Salsa for Garnish
Preheat oven to 350˚ and line cookie sheet with foil. Evenly distribute Tortilla chips across cookie sheet.
Finely dice one medium size Jalapeno pepper.
On the stove, brown "meat" over medium heat. Add Pinto beans.
Sprinkle diced jalapeno peppers and cheeze until all chips are covered.
(oops there it is again...Green Chili! I added this to the top for an extra kick!)
Bake for 10 minutes, then Broil for 2 minutes.
And for dessert....
Can't wait to top my oatmeal with these lovelies in the morning!
