Welcome to the River School Blog!
When I was just eight years old, I was so excited to join my dad for a special “take your daughter to work” day. Without question, everyone knew exactly who’s daughter I was… After all, I may have had my momma’s hair and eye coloring, but I looked a lot like my daddy (sans-beard, of course). Those were the days when we’d sing Van Halen’s “Domino” at the top of our lungs, shouting “pizza” together, every time “Domino” came up in the lyrics. To this day, whenever I’m down in the dumps, my dad calls me up and starts singing that song. He will actually refuse to stop until I’ve shouted, “pizza!” and have given him a laugh… This recipe is for my POP, and for all the other daddies out there. Happy Father’s Day!
Van Halen Pizza Dough
(Recipe adapted from MSLO’s “Quick Basic Pizza Dough” recipe)
