Rolling Pin Fun and Homemade Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Remember the last time I made whole wheat and honey pizza from scratch? Well, my friends, it has been SERIOUSLY too long since I made that meal! I need to make homemade and healthy pizza a regular part of my weekly eats! Its so yummy and SO EASY!

Tonight I even got to use my new rolling pin for the first time! It was so exciting! I’m so domestic sometimes it hurts! Pizza Snow 007

Fiancé was nice enough to take some action shots of the making of the meal. I think he is a budding photographer. Check out his skills! He caught me mid-dough rolling.

And then I pretended the rolling pin was a baseball bat. Anyone else ever do that?

And then I measured Jackson. He is just about as long as a rolling pin. That would be your Jackson trivia quota for the night!

Enough playing with my utensils! It’s time to cook! I used some Dei Fratelli pizza sauce that was sent to me to try.

On the whole wheat and honey pizza dough, fiancé and I decided on onions, peppers and pepperoni as toppings.

    That looks really good. I love anchovies, mushrooms, peppers and olives on my pizza.
