Family Pizza Night With An Easy Garlic Crust! #FoodieFriday #Recipe

Does your family have a pizza night every week or two? We enjoy pizza night usually once a week, sometimes every other week. It's usually on Friday evenings, and we play games or watch a family movie together afterwards. Sometimes, depending on our schedule that day, we order from a local pizzeria, but our favorite is when we can make it at home, and each person can customize a few slices to their personal taste! This past weekend I was really in the mood for a garlicky-herb crust, so I went online and tried finding a really good recipe. I eventually found one that sounded like what I was looking for, and the end result was perfection! As in, the best pizza crust you've ever tasted!  (To be honest, I actually ate 3 slices, whereas I normally only eat 2). 
And don't worry about all the time and effort of making your own crust; just throw the ingredients in your bread machine, turn it to dough setting, and that's it! You probably already have all these ingredients in your pantry, so why not wow your family this weekend with an easy garlic-herb crust pizza?!

Now THAT is a pizza!!
1 cup + 2 tablespoons Warm Water
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Minced Garlic (depending on your taste)
3 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning
2 teaspoons Grated Parmesan Cheese
2-1/2 teaspoons Yeast

Place all ingredients in bread machine in the order listed. Turn to dough setting and start. When dough is done, roll out on a floured surface (for pizza dough it usually works better just stretching and pulling than using a rolling pin) to desired thickness and shape. I did mine on a 15" rectangle cookie sheet and that gave us a pretty thick crust, which is our family's favorite. You could probably divide and make 2 (smaller) thin crust pizzas if you prefer. Lightly grease your pan and sprinkle cornmeal on top then move pizza to pan. Add sauce and toppings as desired, then bake at 400 for 18-24 minutes (less if thin crust). Slice and enjoy!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point.
