As an Ohioan I’m utterly ashamed of anyone who would advocate for anything honoring the confederacy. Ohio raised nearly 320,000 soldiers for the Union army, third behind only New York and Pennsylvania in total manpower contributed to the military. Ohio played an important part in the Underground Railroad prior to the war, and remained a haven for escaped and runaway slaves during the war years. Several leading generals were from Ohio, including Ulysses S. Grant, William T. Sherman, and Philip H. Sheridan. Five Ohio-born Civil War officers would later serve as the President of the United States. Anyone fighting for the confederacy was a traitor to our country and while we shouldn’t forget what happened we should not honor them by giving them monuments and plaques in places of honor, those things should be in museums where people can learn & ask questions.

Someone stuck a sign in the ground where a Confederate plaque once stood in Franklin.

Pizza Dough

Course Bread
Keyword Bread, Dough, Pizza
Prep Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water between 100°-110°F
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons 1 normal sized packet active dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cups all purpose flour approximate, see notes for alternative flours

Instructions

  1. Measure water in a measuring cup, then add the yeast and sugar. Stir gently, then let sit until it’s active and foamy. This will happen within 5 minutes. If it doesn’t, your water may have been too hot or cold or your yeast may be old. It is important to use a thermometer to measure your water temp. An instant read thermometer is best but in a pinch a meat thermometer will do.
  2. Stir salt, oil, and 2 cups flour in a large mixing bowl, stirring in the yeast mixture as you go, using a wooden spoon. Add the third cup of flour and then stir until you can’t anymore. Remove the spoon and then use your hands to work the dough into a ball that is slightly sticky.

  3. Spray a second large bowl with nonstick cooking spray, add your pizza dough ball, then spray the top lightly with cooking spray and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Place in a warm area of the kitchen and let rise until doubled in size, about 1-2 hours.
  4. When ready to make pizza: turn out dough onto a lightly floured cutting board or a sheet of parchment paper. Sprinkle with more flour if needed so you can stretch and flatten the dough into your desired size.
  5. Cut parchment paper to fit the pan you’re using, hanging over just about an inch on all sides our circumference. Preheat oven to 500°F. Place pizza pan in the oven while the oven is preheating. Place your pizza dough on the sized parchment paper and top as desired. Once the oven is up to temperature, carefully transfer the pizza to the hot pan (be careful – pan is HOT). Cook until the cheese is melted and crust is slightly browned.

Recipe Notes

  • This pizza dough can make 1 thicker crust or 2 thin crust 10-12” pizzas, or 4-6 small personal sized pizzas.
    • One 10-12 inch thicker crust pizza
    • Two 10-12 inch thin crust pizzas
    • 4-6 mini personal size pizzas
  • Alternative flours:
    • White Whole Wheat Crust: use 2 1/2 cups of white whole wheat flour. The dough will be more dense.
    • Whole Wheat Crust: use 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour and about 1 to 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour. The dough will be more dense.
    • Gluten Free Crust: use 2 cups of one to one gluten free flour (the kind that you can substitute one to one for all purpose, such as Bob’s Red Mill – light blue package). The dough is not going to rise. I let mine sit, but the gluten doesn’t form, because, obviously. So instead you just press the dough into the pan instead of rolling it out. The end result is more like a crunchy crust/chewy cracker.
  • Baking options:
    • Baked pizza: Heat pan(s) in a 500°F oven while you roll out the dough. Place each crust on parchment paper to easily transfer to the hot oven.
    • Grilled pizza: Heat grill to 500°F. Place pizza stone on the grill. Before pressing out dough into desired size and shape, coat the cutting board with cornmeal and press out the crust on top, to help it keep from sticking. Transfer the pizza to the hot stone using a flat pizza peel or slide it off the parchment paper.
    • To freeze pizza dough: wrap it well in plastic and ziploc bags and freeze up to one month. Pizza dough can be made and baked or grilled (without toppings) and frozen between parchment paper in ziploc bags for easy dinners.

Homemade pizza crust

This evening I made my own pizza crust, but I neglected to take any pictures. The resulting pizza was a success with the family. I don’t believe I will ever buy an already made crust again. I’ll make sure to get pictures next time. I think I’m also going to try my hand at bread sticks.

Maybe I’m weird, but the whole idea of this just gives me the creeps. Why can’t they just let the guy rest in peace & quite trying to make money off him.

A hologram of Ronnie James Dio will tour the world beginning later this year.

The only nightmare I have is one of going backwards where I manage to rack up thousands of dollars in medical debt and am Once again forced to file bankruptcy.

I don’t want Health Insurance I want Health Care and I want all my fellow Americans to have equal access to that health care. We need single payer so that people aren’t forced to choose between their health and their bills.

Insurance on health is a losing bet. It’s us paying into a company hoping we don’t need it and then expecting it be there when we do. The problem is unlike car insurance, Homeowners, or renter’s insurance which you may never need, we will all need health care at some point.

Insurance companies want to make profits, that’s what companies do, that’s why prior to the ACA they would do things like deny people with pre-existing conditions, and set life time limits so that you and your sickness wouldn’t bite into their bottom line.

We should be fighting for Medicaid for all, not trying to bandage what was made into a crippled system because of partisan infighting.

Celebrating a slim but symbolic health-care win in Washington, President Donald Trump told supporters in Ohio that the nation was one step closer to liberation from the “Obamacare nightmare.”
