Dough babies

27 Apr

I remember why I bought my first package of Trader Joe’s Pizza Dough. I was visiting the tasting bar (ahhh, the tasting bar….). The featured taste was garlic dough twists. The tasting barista took small pieces of the dough, rolled them, baked them for a few minutes and then dropped them into a pool of garlic flavored olive oil. So good, so fresh, so easy.

It was Halloween, when I join my neighbors to sit outside one of our homes and hand out candy to trick or treaters, while we enjoy a glass of wine and appetizers. At the TJ tasting bar, I found my appetizer. That’s why I bought my first package.

Since then, though, I’ve made dinner rolls and chicken in a blanket, with and without cheese. I haven’t made a pizza, yet. But it’s in the plan.

What do you make with your pizza dough?

Thanks, TJ’s.

    I love the idea of using the pizza dough for things other than pizza. (I will definitley have to try the dough twists swimming in a garlic-flavored olive oil pool!) I did try to make pizza with TJ’s garlic flavored dough, and it was a collassal flop. But, it is reassuring to know that there are other options!

    So sorry to hear about the pizza fiasco! I had a similar experience. It’s made me feel challenged to get it to work. Maybe a TJ’s professional would have some tips to offer for successful pizza cooking?
