Pizza Bites

I'm a scaredy cat.

Doll in Toy Story? Scared.

Dolls in general? Terrified.

Transformers? Vampire Diaries?  Yes and Yes.

In my defense, I only get scared at certain parts -then I hide behind a pillow and wait until P says it's okay to watch again. 

Ironically, just after talking about how the nun masks in The Town creeped me out, my friends and I walked into a movie theater -only to see giant posters of the nun masks everywhere advertising the movie in Imax. 

Perfect!

Merppp. Anyways, onto to crazier happier things -pizza bites! 

Anything pizza is pretty delicious, and these are no exception. These are great if you want a snack or need a dish to bring somewhere. 




Pizza Dough -after testing lots of dough recipes, this is my go to! The dough can get sticky, but definitely worth it! Adapted from ATK

1 3/4 cup warm water
2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp olive oil
4 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp salt

Add yeast to warm water. Put in warm area for 5-10 min and proof. (It should foam.)
Add remaining ingredients and mix.
If the dough is sticky, add 2 tbsp of flour.
Allow to rest for 2 minutes.
Knead until smooth and set in warm spot (microwave works well) for at least 1 hour.

    [3] Those videos were so great. I love them! My fav parts were the dice becoming smaller dice becoming smaller dice, and the light bulb's filament being scooped out. And the Kaleidoscope sprinkles. And everything else.
