In the mood.....to cook!
3-31/2 cups all purpose flour 3/4 tsp salt
1 package, or 1 TBSP rapid rise yeast 1 cup very warm whey
(if you do not have whey, you may use milk)
2 TBSP olive oil Cornmeal
Combine 2 cups flour, yeast and salt. Stir whey and olive oil into dry ingredients. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough..Knead until smooth and elastic. Cover, let rest about 10 minutes.
We use this to make calzones with the ricotta, but if you make pizza:
I hope you decide to try this, as it is a very simple and fun task, especially with older children. They will love to watch the curds form and separate from the whey. Until next time........here's to your health!!
