Thanks to my friends at Rhodes for sponsoring today’s post! #Rhodes #frozendough
The other day in my Raspberry Cheesecake Dessert post I shared with you that I started homeschooling my youngest.
Homeschooling is a huge adjustment for me. I’m now a shut-in. I think I’m more shut-in than I was when I had newborn babies. And now I have to squeeze my work in somewhere in between math and language arts. Let’s not even talk about how difficult it is to work a shower into my schedule!
When I pulled him out we told ourselves we were going to do homeschool right (whatever that means) and I was going to teach him more than he would have ever learned being at school. I guess you could say I’m a little hard core!
We are about 6 weeks into our homeschool routine and I guess you could still say I’m a slave driver but Payson and I can both admit we are cruising through the material and he’s learning by leaps and bounds.
That was until today! I felt like a disgusting greasy mess and I couldn’t wait one more minute to shower. So I taught him how to read and write Roman Numerals (yes I know he won’t ever really use it again, but it was the next lesson in the book and I think it’s important that he at least is familiar with them) and let him practice while I took a much needed lightning fast shower!
Then I turned him loose on his review of fragmented, run on, and compound sentences, and past perfect tense verbs and I turned myself loose on Cookie Dough Dessert Pizza! YOU GUYS! This stuff is the best thing that happened today…okay, I know Roman Numerals aren’t much competition! But still, it’s so stinking good!
And it turns out that it’s a great motivator too! Because I wouldn’t let Payson have even one little lick of a spoon, or bite until he finished his work! That kid is incredibly smart and quick when he has Cookie Dough Dessert Pizza dangling over his head!
So, his school work is finished! Mine work is not!
And when that happens what does any responsible mother and teacher do? Pawn their jobs off on the kid/student! Ha! He’s vacuuming, doing dishes, and starting laundry! Hey, more kids should know how to do those jobs anyway right!
Really quickly let me tell you about Cookie Dough Dessert Pizza!
Like I said, Cookie Dough Dessert Pizza only has 4 ingredients
- Rhodes frozen dough
- hot fudge sauce (Check out my recipe for my favorite Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce)
- Store bought cookie dough (Go ahead and make your own if you don’t have math to correct and payroll due to your employees)
- A can of vanilla frosting (And if you still don’t have anything to do you can make this from scratch too!)
Here’s a rundown on how to put Cookie Dough Dessert Pizza together.
- Thaw Rhodes frozen dough according to package directions. I used one loaf and let it sit out overnight. Before spreading the dough out I always let it rest for a few minutes and it seems to make it so much easier to work with.
- Move rack to the center position in the oven. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Form pizza crust with dough. My pizza pan is a 15” pan and one loaf is perfect for that size pan.
- Warm up 1/2 -¾ cups hot fudge sauce. I stick it in the microwave for a few seconds. You just need it warm enough to spread easily.
- Crumble cookie dough over hot fudge sauce. I use my trusty fingers.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes.
- Let pizza cool for about 5 minutes.
- Warm up additional hot fudge sauce and vanilla icing and drizzle over pizza.
- Slice into pieces and dig in!
Using store bought ingredients makes Cookie Dough Dessert Pizza incredibly quick and easy to make. I can’t even tell you how many times using Rhodes frozen dough has saved my life!
After Payson finished his work and rewarded him with his Cookie Dough Dessert Pizza, as promised, he just couldn’t stop talking about how soft, and tender the crust was (hey thanks Rhodes for making me look like a rock star with so little effort on my part), how incredible even store bought cookie dough tastes on pizza, and how he could drink hot fudge sauce from the jar!
Needless to say, I might be making Cookie Dough Dessert Pizza everyday for the rest of the school year in an attempt to get the kid to finish his homework a little faster!
I might gain weight, but we all might be happier in the end! And since Pi Day is right around the corner can we pretend like I’m totally on top of my game and that making Cookie Dough Dessert Pizza counts as studying Pi?
