Bite Into These Recipes for Delicious Pizza Dough

September 18, 2014 1:03 pm

Everyone loves pizza, which means that it’s likely one of your go-to dinner recipes on casual nights at home. Here are three great recipes for pizza dough that you can make right in your own kitchen.

The Pioneer Woman’s Favorite Pizza [The Pioneer Woman]
This vegetarian pizza dough recipe makes enough for two whole pizzas, so you can either store it for later or make two different types of pies. It also only requires four common ingredients that you probably already have on hand.

101 Cookbooks’ Best Pizza Dough Ever [101 Cookbooks]
The addition of olive oil gives this thin-crust pizza dough its moist, supple texture, and the overnight fermentation process provides the fluffy rise and golden brown color after baking. This recipe is a bit more involved than most, but if you want to create truly gourmet pizzas, it’s well worth the wait.

Martha Stewart’s Quick Basic Pizza Dough [Martha Stewart]
Most people make pizza on nights when they don’t have much time to spare, which makes this recipe a great one to have in your arsenal. Plus, you can refrigerate it for up to two hours or freeze it for up to three months for quick dinners in the future.

Murphy’s: A Top Atlanta Restaurant

September 17, 2014 12:09 pm

Atlanta residents have hundreds of awesome restaurants to choose from, but one name that climbs to the top of almost every best-of list is Murphy’s. This Virginia Highland institution has been serving up New American cuisine for over three decades with no sign of slowing down, and regulars rave about their innovative, delicious dishes.

If you go for dinner, start your meal with a plate of the beer-braised mussels or a cup of their awesome black bean and Tasso ham soup. For entrees, everything is great but frequent eaters say that the grilled Georgia trout with Meyer lemon and arugula ravioli, roasted corn, pea shoots and feta is out of this world. The Guinness-braised beef brisket is a perfect hearty pick for a chilly evening.

Murphy's weekend brunches draw tremendous crowds for specialties like the Eggs T. Murphy – a pair of poached eggs served over honey cured ham on an English muffin and doused with perfect hollandaise sauce – as well as the tasty chilaquiles.
