Well my attempt not only turned out good... it turned out better than I remembered! I was so excited to share this meal with Joseph and E and was super happy to find out that their reaction was very pleased. E even asked me to make them again the next day. And he was going to help :) This is now on our monthly rotation as either dinner or lunch and E always helps add the toppings and roll up the pizza dough into balls.
Inspiration: Family meal from my childhood (my mom)
- 1 ball of pizza dough (I used Trader Joe's whole wheat)
- 1 serving Hormel Pepperoni (14 slices/28g)
- 1/2 cup Trader Joe's Three Cheese Blend
- 1/2 cup diced crimini mushrooms
- 1 1/2 cups spinach, chopped
- 1 cup marinara sauce, for dipping
Divide dough into 6 equal pieces and roll out each piece into a 4-5" circle. Place an equal amount of each topping in the middle of the dough circle and bring the edges of the circle up over the toppings. Pinch edges together to form a ball. Repeat with the other circles.
Take pizza stone out of the oven and place pizza balls on stone. Bake for 9-10 minutes or until the pizza balls are golden brown. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving with marinara dipping sauce.
