FullSizeRender(1)

I never thought the day would come when I would share a pizza dough recipe! First, I hate working with yeast & second I always believed that pizza should never be made at home! But things change & so do I.

I have been working on this recipe for months; trying almost 70% of all the dough recipes I came across online & all the recipes I was given by my mother’s friends! So the below recipe is mainly bits & pieces from every recipe I tried.

Spicy Dip with Ooey Gooey Melting Cheese!

This is one hell of an addictive crowd pleaser dish!

If you ever loved Jalapeno Poppers at TGI Fridays, you just secured yourself the homemade alternative!

The first time I made this dish was at the biggest family gathering I ever hosted.
