Pupperoni Pizzas

Jun 26, 2020 | Pets, Treat Recipes

Happy “Friday Treats Friday” everyone!!!!  If you didn’t read my post on Wednesday (HERE), I talked about my love for pizza and the idea came to me…why not make mini Pupperoni Pizzas for Jake and Maggie?!?!
We have a major project going on at home making custom made cabinets and drawers for our garage.  Thomas and I put our heads together and came up with a plan, made several trips to Lowe’s, and are now in the middle of our garage renovation!  I am so excited because this has been a long time coming.  We will have a cabinet for everything from a potting area, charging station, saw and funneling system for saw dust, pantry, work bench, garbage cabinet, cleaning supplies, coats, and cabinets for all the tall stuff like ladders.  We chose to stain instead of paint.
Call me crazy but I love to paint and now I love to stain :-).  As I was in my happy place staining away, the ideas for these blog posts came to me and my idea for a puppy pizza was born.  If you try this recipe, let me know how it turned out for you and your pup!  Enjoy!!

Did you say pizza?

If you are wondering if olive oil is good for your dog, it is.  This recipe calls for Extra Virgin Olive Oil and I was concerned with how much of it to use but after doing some research, I have found it is actually very good for your pup.  Olive oil doesn’t just keep dogs feeling good, it helps them look good too.  Vets recommend one teaspoon of olive oil per 20 pounds of body weight per meal, mixed in with your dog’s regular wet or dry food.  Extra virgin, which has a lower acid content, is best if you choose to use olive oil.  Still be cautious; while olive oil is considered safe for dogs, it might irritate the gastrointestinal tracts of pups with sensitive stomachs, so don’t give it to your dog if he’s exhibiting any signs of diarrhea or vomiting.
 
Milo’s Kitchen Homestyle Dog Treats Beef Sausage Slices With Rice are high in protein, no artificial flavors or colors, and no meat by-products.  The number 1 ingredient is real beef!  These would make for a great training treat if broken up in pieces.  When training your puppy or dog, always use high quality treats for better response and learning.

Pupperoni Pizza

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour

1/2 cup of corn meal

1 egg

2 cups of water

3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

Baby spinach
 

Mozzarella cheese

 
Instructions:

Mix whole wheat flour, corn meal, egg, olive oil, and water together well.  Dough should be more on the stiff side.  If too sticky or watery, add more flour
 
Place dough on parchment paper and knead for a few minutes
 
Using a rolling pin, lightly flour rolling pin, and roll out dough about 1/4 inch thick or to the thickness you prefer
 
Use your preferred cutout.  I used a plastic glass to make the circles
 
Use a pizza stone to make these pizzas but make sure you add a tablespoon of cornmeal first to prevent your dough from sticking.  If you are using a pan, place a sheet of parchment paper down first.
 
Place the pizza circles on the stone and add two leaves of spinach and a teaspoon of cheese
 
Bake at 375 for 30 minutes
 
Take out, add Milo’s Kitchen Beef Sausage Slices, sprinkle with more mozzarella, lightly drizzle with olive oil
 
Bake at 375 for 3-5 minutes
 
Take out, let cool
 
This recipe made 20 treats using a large plastic glass for cutting
