I always give pizza as an alternative.

Sometimes, like tonight, I come up with some disastrous dinner ideas.  It turns out you can’t really float a giant wad of biscuit dough on top of a pan of reworked borracho beans and expect it to cook through and be tasty. The beans were plenty good when I made them last week, but my track record with left overs isn’t so hot.

I swear my mom used to make something with Bisquick and taco meat that was fantastic… at least to a nine year old.

Thank Flying Spaghetti Monster that Austin Pizza delivers so quickly.  I didn’t even wait for my monstrosity to come out of the oven before I jumped on line and ordred our back up pie.


Grilled Pizza Dough

April 27, 2008

3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup warm water
1 tbs honey
1 tsp active dry yeast
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp dried Italian herbs
Fresh cracked pepper
Corn meal

Combine water, honey, and yeast to dissolve. Add flour, and herbs to liquid and work for 10 minutes. Work in extra flour as needed to form a slightly stretchy, smooth dough. Allow to rise at room temperature for 3 hours. Refrigerate in an air tight bag coated internally with olive oil for up to two days. Cut off required amount of dough and stretch by hand to desired size. Place on a peel or back of a cookie sheet dusted w/ corn meal. Build pizza on top of sheet or peel. Slide on to pizza stone in grill or oven preheated to 400F. Bake for around 10 minutes until top side of crust begins to brown.
