A Trader Joe's just opened up fairly near where I live, so I checked it out last weekend. Among other things I got some of their pizza dough, as I had heard good things about it, and some Greek-style Yogurt. The pizza dough didn't work so well. It was really sticky and just didn't want to spread out to 12" pizza size. The resulting pizza was good though, even if the dough was a bit doughy. Sausage on one side, caramelized onions and olives on the other, fresh mozzarella cheese and basil throughout. Really, how can that be bad?
Still looking for a quick pizza dough solution though. Lisa, you mentioned making pizza dough and saving it in the freezer for Calzones. Care to post your recipe here?
The Greek-style yogurt on the other hand was to die for. They make the yogurt with all the full-fat milk and cream they can stuff into it, then drain much of the liquid out so it's even thicker and creamier and yogurtier. Eaten plain with honey drizzled on top - creamy, tangy, sour, sweet. It's a little piece of heaven. Not exactly a diet food, but worth the indulgence.
