Meatball Pizza

Can't say much about this... it's not nice to talk with my mouth full. What I can say is the pizza was delicious. I had the meatballs in the freezer and the pizza dough recipe came from the book My Bread by Jim Lahey. There was only one little piece left.

Earlier today I tried a new scone recipe from Cooking Light. Pistachio Cranberry Scones.

Ingredients -
9 ounces all-purpose flour (about 2 cups)
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
1/3 cup fat-free buttermilk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries
1/4 cup chopped pistachios, toasted
1 large egg white
2 tablespoons turbinado sugar

Method -
Preheat oven to 400°.

Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Cover and chill flour mixture 10 minutes.

Combine buttermilk and next 4 ingredients (through egg), stirring with a whisk until well blended. Stir in cranberries and nuts. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture; stir just until dough is moist.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Pat dough into an 8-inch circle on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cut dough into 12 wedges (do not separate the wedges). Brush egg white over dough; sprinkle evenly with turbinado sugar. Bake at 400° for 13 minutes or until golden. Remove from pan; cool 2 minutes on wire racks. Serve warm or at room temperature.

And only 191 calories.

Dear Lucia, These sound delicious. The pistachios and cranberries give it a nice flavor.
Delicious with butter or cream cheese too and a nice cup of coffee. Blessings dear Lucia. Catherine xo
