Today’s Menu: It’s Pizza Tonight from Domino’s

 

For Breakfast this morning I fried a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, Scrambled an Egg, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After I had Breakfast and did the dishes I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. It’s not quite as hot out, 82 degrees but still a tad muggy. After Lunch I got the cart out of the shed and I to dig up an old bush that was dead and then I had to dig out some soil running along side the driveway. Still having drainage problems when it rains. Things would be a lot easier if I wasn’t in a wheel chair but you have to work with what you got! For Dinner tonight It’s Pizza from Domino’s.

 

 

I had something planned out for my Dinner tonight but Mom and Dad had been wanting a Pizza for sometime now so Pizza it is, Domino’s Pizza. A few more calories and carbs than what I normally like to have for dinner but it had been quite a while since I had one and it sounded good for a Sunday Meal, and love the clean up afterwards! We ordered a Domino’s Hand Tossed Pizza Large with Cheese, Sauce, Pepperoni, Italian Sausage, Mushrooms, and Black Olives, Green Olives. As always the Pizza arrived on time, hot and delicious! I had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn. The Kitchen will reopen tomorrow!

 

 

 

 

Medium (12″) Hand Tossed Pizza
Whole: Cheese, Pepperoni, Italian Sausage, Green Olives, Black Olives, Mushrooms, Robust Inspired Tomato Sauce. https://www.dominos.com/en/index.jsp

One of America’s Favorites – New York-Style Pizza

May 15, 2017 at 5:14 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

New York-style pizza from Brooklyn

New York-style pizza is a style of pizza characterized by large hand-tossed thin-crust pies, often sold in wide slices to go. It has a crust which is crisp along its edge yet soft and pliable enough beneath its toppings to be folded in half to eat. This style evolved in the U.S. from a type that originated in New York City in the early 1900s, and today refers to the style of pizza eaten in the states of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. This style of pizza is similar to the original Italian version. Regional variations exist throughout the Northeast and elsewhere in the U.S.

 

 

 

Slices of New York-style pizza to-go topped with pepperoni

The first pizzeria in the United States of America was founded by Gennaro Lombardi in New York City’s Little Italy in 1905. An immigrant pizzaiolo from Naples, he opened a grocery store in 1897; eight years later, it was licensed to sell pizza by New York State. An employee, Antonio Totonno Pero, began making pizza, which sold for five cents a pie. Many people, however, could not afford a whole pie and instead would offer what they could in return for a corresponding sized slice,[citation needed] which was wrapped in paper tied with string. In 1924, Totonno left Lombardi’s to open his own pizzeria on Coney Island, called Totonno’s.

The original pizzerias in New York used coal brick ovens and baked their pizza with the cheese on the bottom and sauce on top.[citation needed] By 2010, over 400 pizza restaurants existed in New York City, with hundreds more of varied cuisine also offering the dish.

 
New York-style pizza is traditionally hand-tossed, consisting in its basic form of a light layer of tomato sauce and dry,

New York-style pizza with various toppings

grated, full-fat mozzarella cheese; additional toppings are placed atop the cheese. Pies are typically around 18 inches in diameter, and commonly cut into 8 slices. These large wide slices are often eaten as fast food or a “street snack” while folded in half from the crust, as their flexibility sometimes makes them unwieldy to eat flat. Folding the slice also allows it to be eaten with one hand.

New York-style pizza gets its distinguishing crust from the high-gluten bread flour with which it is made. Minerals present in New York City’s tap water supply are also credited with giving the dough in metro area pies their characteristic flavor. Some out-of-state pizza makers even transport the water cross-country for the sake of authenticity.

 

Typical condiments include dried oregano, dried basil, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and dried red chili pepper flakes.
New York-style pizza is most prevalent in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, but can be found throughout the Northeastern region and beyond. Outside this area, many pizzas described as “New York style,” including those of major pizza chains such as Pizza Hut, generally do not fall within the variations commonly accepted as genuine in its native area.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta w/ Cheesy Bread

 

 

 

 

To start my day off I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, fried up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom. After that it was house cleaning. About 1:00 I headed over to the rehab center to see Dad. Today was a good day for him. Clear headed and his breathing was a lot better. Back home, for Dinner tonight its Leftovers. I reheated the Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta.

 

 

Oh I love this Pizza Pasta! It may be a boxed Dinner, but its one of my favorites. So easy to prepare and a fantastic flavor. And for leftovers, it reheats perfectly. To reheat it i just put it into a small sauce pan and heated it on medium low until it was heated through. Fantastic Leftovers! I had a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar. I left last nights post below for recipe and directions. Later!

 

 

 

 


Anyway it’s got two of my favorites in it, pasta and pizza! The box contains 1 can of Pizza Sauce w/ Pepperoni and Sausage and 1 Pouch of Rotini Pasta. I also added a few slices of Turkey Pepperoni and sliced Portabello Mushrooms to the mix. For the preparation you can bake it or prepare it on the stove top, which is how I prepared it. Add 1 cup of water, stir and mix, and simmer and you have your dinner! This came out fantastic! Really had a good Pizza flavor to it. The Sauce with the Mushrooms, Sausage, and Pepperoni provides the great flavoring. Easily prepared and makes a hearty and delicious meal.

 

Along with the Pizza Pasta I also prepared some Baked Cheesy Bread. Another easy one, using Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Just Butter the Bread and add your Cheese on top. Then bake on 400 degrees until the Bread is toasted and Cheese is melted.

Today’s Menu: Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta w/ Cheesy Bread

 
For Breakfast this morning I fried up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I headed to the local Kroger to pick up a few items. Then on my way back I stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom and stopped and got gas. After Lunch went to the rehab center to see Dad. I’m afraid his dementia is getting worse, hoping that wouldn’t happen. A lot of stressful days ahead. But we’ll do whatever we can to help him. For Dinner tonight I prepared a box of the Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta.

 

 

Oh I love this Pizza Pasta! This is one of my favorite boxed foods, Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta. Nothing like a quick, easy and delicious comfort food. But here’s another product I love and it’s getting harder and harder to find, I can only find it at Walmart or online now! I found this box at Walmart the other day.

 

 

 

 

Anyway it’s got two of my favorites in it, pasta and pizza! The box contains 1 can of Pizza Sauce w/ Pepperoni and Sausage and 1 Pouch of Rotini Pasta.

Mini Flatbread Pepperoni and Sausage Pizza

Today’s Menu: Mini Flatbread Pepperoni and Sausage Pizza

 

 

For Breakfast on this 1st day of April I had a Poached Egg that I served on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. They moved Dad from the hospital back over to the Rehab Center he was just at last week. They are going to try more therapy and if that doesn’t work he will have to stay in an assisted living center, hope it doesn’t come to that. So after Breakfast I went to Kroger and picked up a few snacks that Dad likes. Then after Lunch I went on over to see Dad. Back home took it easy and watched a few shows that I had recorded. For my dinner tonight I’m preparing a Mini Flatbread Pepperoni and Sausage Pizza.

 

 

 

 

While at Jungle Jim’s Market the other day I picked up a package of Kontos Pre­Grilled Mini Oval Flatbread. I had used these once before and really liked the way they came out. It’s pregrilled so it’s ready to eat or reheat. What I liked about it was they were the perfect size to make mini Pizzas with, plus they’re only 140 calories and 24 net carbs for a whole one (one serving)!

 

 

 

 

 

To make the Pizzas I’ll need; the Kontos Pre­Grilled Mini Oval Flatbread, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links, Sliced Black and Green Olives, Ragu Pizza Sauce, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese.

 

 

 


To prepare it I started by preheating the oven on 400 degrees. The Johnsonville Turkey Sausage is precooked so all I had to do was heat up in a small skillet for 5 minutes on medium heat. Removed from the heat and sliced the Links up into small bite pieces. I then got a small baking sheet and lined it with foil and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I then took one of the Flatbreads and brushed a very light coat of Extra Virgin Olive Oil on the top of them.

 

 

 

 

Next I made my Pizza! I started by spreading 2 tablespoons of the Ragu Pizza Sauce across the top of the Flatbread. Then added the sliced Olives, Turkey sausage, Mozzarella Cheese, and topped it all with Turkey Pepperoni. Then I made a second one the same way. Laid the Flatbreads on the baking sheet and put it in the oven. I baked them for about 8 minutes, until the Cheese was melted and all items heated through.

 

 

 

 

 

The Flatbread provides a perfect Crust (Pizza Pie). It browned up great and had a fantastic flavor with a nice crunch! I’ll have to try different toppings, like Ham or Chicken, using the Kontos Pre­Grilled Mini Oval Flatbread. I’ve found a good Pizza Pie Crust and it’s only 140 calories per serving! For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kontos Pre­Grilled Mini Oval Flatbread

A mini oval flatbread (6”x4”) that is pre-grilled for your convenience. Ideal for the breadbasket, may be cut into wedges or strips for dips or spreads. ‘Hand stretched for fluffiness™’ from individual dough balls, contains no Trans Fat, and is 100% Vegetarian.
