So it’s December… The season of gifts, giving, glitter, and GUESTS. We all want to impress our guests with great food, but don’t have the time to cook all day for them. This little tip takes your pedestrian lunch sandwich to the next level and allows you to IMPRESS without the STRESS… See that? I rhymed right there.
Regular old bread is for the birds (no but seriously, birds love bread) serve your house guests something warm and delicious… with store bought pizza dough! The greatest thing about store bought pizza dough is that NO ONE will ever be able to tell it was store bought AND you can do a million things with it.
At the end of the day I want you to take one thing away from this post, and that is that pizza dough is super versatile… WAY past regular pizza with red sauce i.e.:
Make a flatbread- top raw dough with a generous spread greek yogurt and parm, then add prosciutto corn and mushrooms, bake until melted and golden brown and add some fresh arugula and a little drizzle of balsamic and honey reduction once it comes out.
Make a quick dessert!- top raw pizza dough with melted butter, sugar, and cinnamon and bake. OR top with just melted butter, chocolate chips, (maybe a few marshmallows?) and a sprinkle of sugar bake, and serve with nutella or peanut butter on the side to spread!
Make focaccia bread for sandwiches or breadsticks (which is what I did in this post)
Anywho, the possibilities are kind of endless, if you ask me, and I encourage you to tailor the dough to your specific entertaining needs! This sandwich is super simple so don’t judge me for not making some super creative sauce and filling, I am really focussing on the bread in this one and the sandwich is pretty darn good to be honest!
