Homemade Pizza Dough & Lasagna Vegtable Soup Dinner Recipe

Homemade Pizza Dough - Kristy's Recipe

Active Yeast, Warm Water, Oil, Butter/Garlic, Sugar & Salt
Add Flour.  Olive Oil is to coat the bottom of the pizza pan or drizzle on top of the tomatoes

bring flour together and start to form dough ball

normally you will get 2 dough balls out of this recipe.  I normally freeze the second dough ball for a later date to pull out and make.

2 packages active dry yeast
2 cups of warm water (110 degrees)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons butter - also I add minced garlic to my butter (1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic)
1-1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 cups of all-purpose flour
cornmeal (if you'd like on the bottom of your pan for coating/dusting)

In a large metal bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.  Add the oil, garlic/butter, sugar and salt and flour.  Blend until smooth and starting to form dough ball.  Turn onto a floured surface and form a dough ball, cover for 10 minutes and let rest.
Roll into a circle to fit your pizza pan.  Make sure your pan is greased and has the the cornmeal lightly dusted within pizza pan.  Add all you fun toppings. I like to spread Williams cheddar roasted garlic cheese on the dough and then add sun dried tomatoes and basil, topped with a 1 cup of mozzarella cheese.

Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes or until browned

Lasagna Vegetable Soup - Kristy's Recipe

Saute one small onion or half of a large onion in a pan with olive oil

I add two large cans of chopped tomatoes.  One can is Italian herb and the other is just plain. 

1 pound of Ground Turkey

1 can of northern beans

veggies - I add alot!

1 large clove and 2 smaller cloves of fresh garlic chopped

1 page of frozen peas (my kids love peas) and if I have any left over frozen veggies such as corn and carrots I add those in too.

This is where I get rid of my left over lasagna noodles.  Just break them up into small pieces and add to the soup pot.

The end result...YUM!!!


1 medium onion chopped
3 large stalks of celery (I always place my stalks in my food processor so the celery is really chopped fine)
3 stalks of bokchoy sliced
1/2 cup of fresh Italian parsley
1 large clove of garlic along with 2 small cloves of garlic - minced
5 cups of water
2 cups of beef broth
1 large can of crushed tomatoes - all liquid goes into soup pot
1 large can of stewed tomatoes - all liquid goes into soup pot
3 teaspoons of Italian Seasoning - I use Mrs. Dash or Aldens Mill Seasonings here:
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1-1/2 pounds of ground turkey
1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables (carrots, peas and corn)
2 cups of fresh cut broccoli florets
1 cup of zucchini
1 cup of Italian green beans
1 can of northern beans or navy beans
(also you can add a can of garbanzo beans if you'd like)
half package of lasagna noodles - break into pieces
From My Kitchen To Yours!  ENJOY!!!
