I don’t know about you, but my family LOVED our Fantastic Pizza Party:)! Brenna@crochet539 and her family chose the theme and the recipe this month. Yum! Thank you Brenna:)!
You can find the details and the recipe here.
For my pizza, I decided on an Arizona themed version. Mine is a type of Navajo Taco or Navajo Pizza! It was really quick and easy, not to mention DELICIOUS!!
The dough was easy to make, but I did have to add a few tablespoons of olive oil to it to get it to this lovely ball stage.
I covered it and left it on the counter while I ran to the store. It definitely over proofed, but thankfully, it didn’t affect the end result:)
I rolled it back into a ball and cut the ball into 10 or so smaller balls. My daughter in law took the job of rolling out the dough into small mini pizzas about 1/4″ thick.
My son took the job of frying the dough into these beautiful discs of fry bread. Mmmmm! I can’t wait! Here is another shot just to make your mouth water:)
I was in charge of the Navajo Toppings.
I browned some meat and onions. I added a large can of beans, green chiles, and salt and pepper. It is kind of a quick type of chile beans.
I put the crust on a round pan, and spooned about 1.5 c of the chile beans onto the crust and sprinkled cheese over the top. I then placed the pizza under the broiler to get the cheese all melted and gooey. Broiling also added a delicious char to the crust as well:)
Here are a few of my family’s Navajo Pizzas. Oh my oh my were they yummy!! We topped them with sliced cabbage and tomatoes.
It really was a party at my house. Just look at the smile on my son’s friend’s face!!
And a Navajo Pizza Party wouldn’t be complete without SWEET fried bread.
This is the classic way to serve Navajo fried bread, with honey. I added a sprinkle of powdered sugar as well.
I am so excited to hear how all of your pizza parties turned out. I am off to go read about them. Here are the links:
If you didn’t join in the fun this month, I hope you will hop in next month. We bake the second week of the month and would LOVE to Bake along with you!
