Taco Pizza

Scripture to Live By:
Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Ephesians 5:1,2

Pizza Crust Recipe:
This recipe makes 3 (14 inch) pizza crust.  I usually freeze two to use later. (For one crust cut ingredients into thirds)
2 1/2 cups of water
1 Tablespoon yeast
1/3 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of oil
2 teaspoons of salt
6 1/2 cups of flour

Put 2 1/2 cups of lukewarm water in a mixing bowl add 1 Tablespoon of yeast. Stir and let set for a minute or so and then add sugar, oil and salt.  Mix well.  Add flour one cup at a time.  Blend well.  Dough should be pull away from the side of the bowl, if it doesn't add a little more flour.  

I spray the bowl with cooking spray after my dough is the right consistency.  I let the dough raise about 30 minutes and then divide it into thirds.  Spread dough in pizza pans.  (spray pans very lightly with cooking spray,  if at all) You can let dough raise in the pans for 15-30 minutes and then bake at 350 degrees until lightly brown.

You could also use store bought pizza crust.

Topping ingredients needed for one pizza.  (If you are making 3 pizzas triple these ingredients.)
Put on in the order listed below.  
1/2 can of refried beans (16 ounce) (more is you like a lot of beans)
1 pound of taco meat -  (1 pound of ground beef, chicken, turkey with 1 envelope of taco seasoning - cook until browned - drain off any grease. (This amount could be used for two pizzas, but if you like a meaty pizza use this amount.)
1 cup of salsa (more if you desire)
1 cup of crushed Doritos (more if you desire)
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1-2 cups of lettuce shredded
2 - medium tomatoes
Zesty Italian Dressing (optional)

Spread refried beans on the pizza crust.

Next spread taco meat evenly on top of the beans.

Next top with salsa.

Add sweet peppers.

Add sliced onions.

Crush Doritos.

Sprinkle them on top of onions and peppers.  You could add a little more salsa if desired.  

Top with 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese.

Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for approximately 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted. 

Serve topped with lettuce and tomatoes if desired.  

My husband likes to drizzle Zesty Italian dressing on top of his pizza.

Serve with a few extra Doritos.

So delicious! 
Wish I had some right now.

Oatmeal Pancakes

Scripture to Live By:
And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand, My Father, which gave the me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand, I and my Father are one.  John 10:28-30

Recipe Post:
Here is another way to get your oatmeal. A friend of mine shared this recipe.  It seemed like a healthy recipe, so I thought I would give it a try.  My husband really liked this recipe. He also likes that oatmeal is said to lower cholesterol.  This is one more way he can eat more oatmeal.  This recipe does not have sugar in it, but has honey instead.  Oats and whole wheat flour are more healthy than all purpose flour.  So if you are desiring to eat healthier than maybe you should give this recipe a try.

1 1/4 cup  Oats
1 cup whole wheat flour (For a little lighter pancake you could use 3/4 cup of whole wheat flour and 1/2 of all purpose flour)
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teas salt
3 egg whites, beaten
2 1/4 cup Buttermilk (Add 2 cups to start with and let it set.  If it is too thick add the additional 1/4 cup.)
2 Tablespoons cooking oil
2 Tablespoons honey
Add berries of your choice:  Strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries, bananas and etc. (I added one cup of blue berries.  Add the amount you would like.  I would not add more than one cup.)
Combine dry ingredients together in one bowl. Mix well

Combine liquid ingredients in another bowl.  Blend.
Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients until well blended.  (Let stand for 15 minutes so the oats will soften up.)

Add fruit as desired.

Measure out 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake and drop on hot griddle prepared with oil or cooking spray.  Cook approximately 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

Serve with real maple  syrup or honey.

A healthier pancake.  I know I will certainly make these again.  

Hope you have a blessed week.
