TapeSwell in the Kitchen

Plain kitchen tiles are a canvas for improvisation with lightly sticky materials like TapeSwell's labels. I call this project Sticky Tile Recipes, where I write down the gist of my favorite and most frequently used recipes, so that I don't have to go through cookbooks every time I'm making dinner. I've decided to share my recipes on this blog as I make them.

Sticky Tile Recipe #1: Thursday Night Pizza
Every Thursday night is pizza night at my house! I like making a big batch of pizza dough at once and freezing it in individual bags. Come Thursday morning, I take the dough out of the freezer and by 5 pm I just need to roll it, add toppings and enjoy it. I use a round stone which bakes the pizza evenly in 5 minutes at 500 F. Dough ingredients for one thin-crust pizza (multiply by x for a big batch at once):
Dissolve the dry yeast in the lukewarm water with the sugar. Let it stand for 5 minutes. Then add it to the flour and add salt. Knead the dough until it's no longer sticky. Cut it into fist size pieces and freeze or roll them out into a pizza crust. Roll the dough out so that it's as thin as a kitchen towel, but not see-through. Place it on a pizza paddle and add the toppings. And the best part - you can add any kind of toppings you like. Be creative! Here I added tomato sauce, cheese, pepperoni and pineapple. And yeah it was great!

Here's some other ideas for using TapeSwell in the kitchen.
