Mix together and set aside. In another bowl, place the following ingredients:
1 cup white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
2 TBSP olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp garlic salt
Stir together and then pour in the yeast mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon til mixed together. Knead it on a floured surface a couple times. Let raise till double. Flatten or roll out onto a pizza pan (or on a cookie sheet) and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and add any pizza sauce and toppings you desire. Finish baking 10-15 minutes more. Enjoy! 🙂
Yield: One 12.5 inch by 9 inch rectangle pan (I don’t have a circle pizza pan) 🙂
Note: You can just use all white flour if desired. Or use your favorite kind of flour, if gluten intolerant. The dough can be made & baked, then stuck into the freezer in a well sealed bag for a quick just-add-toppings pizza later!
(The above pizza has sauce, chicken, onions, orange bell pepper, olives, fresh parsley, Monterrey jack & cheddar cheese.)
Mix dressing together in a blender; cover and blend until smooth. Makes approximately 1 3/4 cups. Drizzle on lettuce salad, cooked quinoa or rice, or on a pasta salad.
Put approximately 5-10 pieces of frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts (or can use other pieces) in a 9×13 (or other baking dish) and drizzle the Italian dressing over it. Chicken does not need to be submerged in the dressing. Bake uncovered for one hour at 300 degrees. Serve hot. Leftovers make a really good cold chicken sandwich or a good chicken salad mixed with mayo, cheese, pickles etc.
Note: I just made this for a group of 40 people. I had 30 large and small pieces of boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a large foil roaster pan. I made a double recipe of the Italian Dressing and drizzled it over all. It was baked, uncovered, at 350-375 degrees for 2 1/2 hours and was very tender and moist. (I did move the chicken around in the pan a couple times while it was baking since the chicken was overlapping.)
If you have leftover broth, drain it off and bring to a boil in a pan. Add rice or quinoa and cook till the grain is tender. This is good in any side dish with vegetables!
