When I lived at home, not much came out of a box. My mom was a big believer in making things homemade. I didn’t know what a Lunchable was until a friend’s mom let us have them for lunch one time. Trust me, I love her for it! While this made me get really sick and hate the food when I got to college (Everything was processed and mass produced. I’m not saying that it was all awful, but it just wasn’t my thing), my mom had my back and sent me food whenever Josh came to visit me!
But, I have a confession to make.
I was about 9 when we first had the Pillsbury pre-cut cookies with the designs on them. We probably begged for them until they were put in the cart just to give my parents some peace. Anyways, these things are my weakness. I love them. Not quite as much as Grandma Lorena’s sugar cookies (You haven’t lived until you have one of those things! Just ask Josh.), but these cookies get me every time. I only buy them once or twice a year, but when I do, it’s a pretty good day!
When I was growing up, we hardly ever ate out. I can’t even remember going to Godfather’s Pizza except for a handful of times with friends. But I adore their dessert pizza. It’s so good and one of my favorite kinds of pizzas! It has a streusel crumb topping with a gooey sweet icing. It’s also extremely easy to make. You can cheat and buy pizza crust, but I usually make my own. However, this time I used two rolls of sweet roll dough (I made a sheet cake size). The dough was a perfect puffy crust for the pizza! I simply proofed the dough in a greased dish in the oven and then pieced them together in the pan. While the dough was proofing, I made my crumb mixture. then popped it in the oven! My friends loved it as much as me! The recipe is below. 🙂
*To proof sweet roll dough- Set the oven to 150 degrees. Put the sweet roll dough in a greased dish, make sure to spritz some cooking spray on top of the dough so it doesn’t stick t the the plastic wrap. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and place a dish towel on top. Once the oven reaches 150 degrees, turn it off and place the dough with the towel on top of the dish in the oven until the dough doubles in size. If your house is warm enough or you have radiators, you can follow the directions on the package.
I hope you enjoy!
