Homemade Takeout

Over my long and relaxing weekend, my sister and I visited my Grandmother. She lives in Somerville, home of the best Italian bakeries. On our way home, after our visit, we stopped at our favorite 'Winter Hill Bakery'. This tiny little spot creates the best loafs of Italian Scali bread in the world. So anyways, we both bought our loaf of bread, I bought a package of homemade garlic bread and I also bought 2 bags of fresh homemade pizza dough. On Monday night, we decided to make out own take out food....

Homemade Caesar Salad

1 heart of romaine lettuce
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp grated cheese (I used Romano)
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2-cup olive oil
Croutons, if desired

In a large bowl, chop lettuce and set aside. In a small bowl whisk together the egg yolk and lemon juice. Then add all other ingredients ending with the olive oil. Whisk together and pour over salad. Toss with extra grated cheese and croutons. Serves 2-4 people 

 Broccoli and Cheese Calzone

1 raw pizza dough ball
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp garlic power
1 cup steamed broccoli
½ cup shredded, part skim mozzarella cheese
1 tsp dried rosemary
½ tsp salt

Preheat oven to 425oF. Open the package of dough and before handling sprinkle all over with flour to make it easier to handle. Using hands, gentle stretch the dough ball to the shape of pizza crust and place on a baking sheet. (Don’t worry about what it looks like, it’s homemade!) Drizzle 1 tbsp of olive oil and spread all over, sprinkle garlic powder, add broccoli and cheese. Fold dough over itself to cover filling and seal pressing the edges together. Drizzle 1 tbsp olive oil over top, sprinkle salt, and rosemary. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
