Sunday is Pizza Day, but today also happens to be National Peanut Butter Day. We celebrated earlier by making our own homemade Peanut Butter. Now we're going to continue that Peanut Butter love and make peanut butter pizza!
At Goofy's Kitchen inside the Disneyland Hotel at the Disneyland Resort, one of the special things they offer as part of the buffet is Peanut Butter and Jelly pizza. That'll be perfect for National Peanut Butter Day, and it fits with my Sunday pizza theme!
All the recipes I found online for the PB&J Pizza from Goofy's Kitchen are identical. I followed along with picky-palate.com while I was making mine.
When I had the original pizza from Goofy's Kitchen, I don't remember the crust being particularly good. Never-the-less, I'm following their recipe for that as well. It starts with water, honey, and yeast.
That mixes with flour, salt, and olive oil.
The resulting dough is much more stiff than what I usually make. I'm curious to see how this one turns out.
After letting it rise for an hour, punching it down, then letting it rise again, it was time to bake the crust.
These crusts bake without any toppings on them. Just the flattened dough. And it bakes as a relatively low temperature. My regular pizzas bake at 550F. These bake at just 350F.
After time was up, the crusts didn't turn brown, but it's feeling like it's baked all the way through. Earlier we made homemade peanut butter for peanut butter sandwiches. There's enough left over that we'll be able to use it for the pizza too.
I microwaved about of cup of it to make it more spreadable.
Then with the spatula, I was able to cover both pizzas.
Theresa was asking me if I was all done with the mixing spoon. Ha, just like the kids would do with beaters if I'm making frosting.
Because we can't just have dessert pizzas for dinner, I also made a couple regular pizzas. Using my own recipe for pizza dough, which is a lot wetter than other doughs, Alli helped me mix and then portion out the dough.
I'm making two regular pizzas. Can you tell which side has Ian's extra pepperoni on it? This one is a regular tomato sauce pizza with 1/2 pepperoni, and 1/2 pepperoni-ham-pineapple.
For the other pizza, Theresa requested no tomato sauce. For that one, I'll be using a homemade Alfredo sauce as the base. That'll be 1/2 pepperoni-ham, and 1/2 ham-olives.
Smile kids! We've got quite the spread tonight! There's a total of 6 different pizza flavors here!
First there's the Goofy's Kitchen PB&J pizza. My jelly came out of my piping bag a lot thicker than I was hoping, but it's gonna taste just fine.
Comparing it to a picture I took of the pizza at Goofy's Kitchen. Their PB is smoother their jelly is thinner. That crust though could be better I think. We'll just see how mine compares.
When I told Theresa that I was making a peanut butter pizza on Sunday for National Peanut Butter Day, she asked if I was making a Peanut Butter, Banana, and Honey pizza. The recipe I'm using makes two crusts, so yes, that sounds like a fantastic idea for what to do with the second crust.
The tomato sauce pizza.
And the Alfredo sauce pizza.
Chi is a fan of just the pizza crusts. As an experiment, just before the 2nd rise, I pulled off 3 little dough balls and put them in my loaf pan. They puffed up nice and big, cooked well, and turned into some tasty rolls for her tonight.
Tasting 3 of the 4 flavors of regular pizza (I don't like olives).
And then it was time for the dessert pizza.
A couple good size slices of each.
Wow, this is fantastic! The crust doesn't remind me so much of pizza crust, but very much like white bread. It's thin and puffy, and because it wasn't baked at high heat, didn't form a crunchy crust.
Theresa and Richard thought the PB&J pizza was great! T said it was like a warm PB&J sandwich, with the same texture and everything. It's a really good recipe.
Chi didn't think her PB and banana pizza had nearly enough bananas on it, so she added a few more slices. It was a tasty dessert.
The kids got small slices of each type of Peanut Butter pizza too.
Alli liked it so much that she wanted another regular size slice of the peanut butter and jelly pizza. We've had a full day of activity with a 5 mile bike ride, 2.25 mile walk, plus at least an hour for them on the trampoline. She was hungry, eating 4 slices of pizza plus a salad!
In a result that I did not quite expect, every single person thought the pizzas were really good tonight.
After dinner, cleaning up the table, Theresa saw me and said it looked like a Pizza Hut buffet. As slices are taken, pizzas are consolidated onto different pans, resulting in pans that have a whole bunch of different kinds of pizza.
Perfect way to celebrate both PB National Day & Pizza Sunday! The PB-Jelly pizza and the PB-Banana-Honey pizza looked really yummy for dessert (delightful surprise on the crust, too)...especially liked the idea of the banana-honey combo since bananas taste great with PB (along w/ apples & PB combo!) That was a great idea to try in creating pizza rolls. The dinner pizzas look wonderful as usual, and one can't miss Ian's signature pizza favorite, either :-) EOMReplyDelete
No matter what specialty pizza I make for the week, Ian wants to make sure that he's getting his Pepperoni.Delete
