Easy Italian

My brother told me a few weeks ago that as a child, I would only eat toast or cheese or something with a combination of  the two. I’m afraid to admit those still rank high on my favorite items list, but you know what, at least I can say I’m consistent. Since I eat like a kid, maybe your kid will like these too. They’re really simple to make!

  • Mazola Pure® Cooking Spray
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 envelopes Fleischmann’s® RapidRise Yeast
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup very warm water (120 degrees F to 130 degrees F)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 ounces pepperoni slices
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Spray a 9-1/2-inch deep dish pie dish. Mix the ingredients that go in the dough and spread over the pie dish. Cover the batter with pizza sauce, layer with pepperoni, and then sprinkle the top with cheese. Place it in the unheated oven and turn it on to 350 degrees Bake the dish for thirty minutes and serve.

Pasta dishes can get boring, so spice up some regular rotini with some fun:

Boil whole wheat pasta according to the directions on the box. Smother in the sauce of your choice and mix in mozzarella cheese and crushed croutons or garlic rounds. Continue to cook until the cheese is melted and serve! This dish goes great with a Caesar salad on the side.
