Two weeks ago, I attended a class at the Co-Op with Liisa on “Foods I Make in My Sleep”. It was all about foods that require little actual time, but lots of rising/setting/etc. time. The class focused on a few primary things: breads, cheeses, and dehydrated fruit. I had so much fun, I decided to try out one of the recipes for myself. So, I made Fromage Blanc!
Fromage Blanc is actually very simple. You take milk, active cultures, add a little heat and a lot of time and ta da! Cheese!

Finished Fromage Blanc (It’s a bit whiter in person, but my kitchen light makes everything look yellow).
To celebrate the successful cheese, I made pizza! It had chicken, onion, yellow pepper, pesto, and Fromage Blanc on a homemade dough. I used half the dough for this pizza and the other half I attempted to make mini pizzas for later use.
Oddly, they puffed up and baked hollow. No matter… Pizza dough pitas it is!
