I am going to be out most of the day so I have to prepare dinner and post this before I go. When I was a teen, one of the meals I prepared for the family was either Chef Boyardee or Appian Way Cheese Pizza Kit and then add toppings as desired. It was quick and easy. Today, I am going above that but not quite to the level of from-scratch pizza. When planning a motorhome trip, I bought things that could be made without refrigerated items, including all the fixings for pizza. One of these was Krusteaz Flatbread Mix. (It smells wonderful.) We didn’t end up using it so I wanted to use it before it goes bad. Here is how I made today’s pizza:

Amount Measure Ingredient — Preparation Method
——– ———— ——————————–
1 package Krusteaz Italian Herb Flatbread Mix
1/4 cup canola oil
1 cup warm water — 115F
2 teaspoons minced garlic
30 grams Mizithra Cheese
3/4 cup pizza sauce
115 grams ricotta cheese, part skim milk — (low-fat)
48 grams pepperoni slice
30 grams diced olives
120 grams mozzarella cheese
78 grams portobello mushrooms
Combine all dough ingredients and mix well. Let rest while oven preheats to 475 degrees F. Spread dough in large (12X17) sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Spread dough with minced garlic and sprinkle with mizithra cheese. Bake for 5 minutes. Combine pizza sauce and ricotta. Spread over dough. Arrange slices of pepperoni and mushroom evenly. Sprinkle with mozzarella. Chill until ready to make. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
I originally planned to cut this in 9 pieces, but if I cut it into 12, 2 pieces are still under 500 calories, so that will seem like a big helping! (Notice the lack of olives and mushroom on the far right side? Miss Picky’s share.) I will bake it just before dinner and give a review and picture of my plate after dinner. For lunch I am having a barbecued all-beef hot dog, cooked over a campfire, but I will not be tempted by the s’mores because I really don’t like them.
These were so nice. The herbs in the flatbread mix were excellent!
