UnCategorized Home-cooked meals are more the exception than the rule for most busy families these days. Many are missing out on the benefits of a shared family meal, including eating more nutritious and less fattening meals. Luckily, the grocery provides many convenience foods that don’t sacrifice taste and nutrition for speed. Frozen dough, which you will find in almost any grocery store, is a good example. Here are three quick dinner ideas using frozen or refrigerated dough (thaw frozen dough in the refrigerator overnight). To make a complete meal, serve with salad. Speedy Pizza Preheat your oven to 450F and lightly sprinkle flour or corn meal on a pizza sheet or baking sheet. Stretch the dough out using either your hands or a rolling pin, until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Prick the pizza dough all over with a fork. Brush a thin layer of extra virgin olive oil. Top with tomato paste, tomato sauce or tomato puree, minced garlic, chopped leftover cooked meat and vegetables you have on hand, such as mushrooms and bell peppers. Bake for 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with mozzarella cheese. Shredded cheddar and Parmesan cheese can also be used in a pinch. Return to the oven and bake for another 8 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and the crust is light brown. Focaccia in a Flash Preheat the oven to 400F. Roll either pizza or bread dough into a rectangle on a cookie sheet. Make dents all over the dough with your fingertips. In a skillet, saute chopped onions and minced garlic in extra virgin olive oil. Top the focaccia with the wilted onions and garlic. Sprinkle Italian seasoning, coarse sea salt and black pepper. Bake for 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with a mixture of mozzarella and Parmesan chesses, or whatever cheese you have. Return to the oven and bake for another 8 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and the crust is light brown. Cut into squares and serve. Easy Sandwich Preheat the oven to 400F. Grease and flour a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Roll the bread dough into a rectangle 9 inches wide. Brush the dough with extra virgin olive oil. Top with shredded leftover meats, bacon bits, sliced olives and cheese. Add herbs and seasonings such as shredded basil leaves or minced parsley. Gently roll and put into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 20 minutes, reduce the temperature to 350F and bake for another 25 minutes. Let cool before serving.
