Let the joyous news be spread,  pizza is on the menu as a food storage and sun oven meal!!

A little history.  I’d never considered pizza as a food storage recipe until Karen from www. kneadfulthingsnow.com talked about it here.   I know I rave about her a lot.  The funny thing is that I haven’t even met this woman — someday when I do I’m going to give her a big hug and thank her for being so smart!  Anyway,  Karen had some awesome ideas there that got me realizing that fun normal foods like this were possible in a food storage plan!  Who would’ve thought?!!

So, it was decided.  We would be having pizza…somehow.

Our kids love these rolls! Thanks to the publisher of  “It’s in the Bag” (www.cedarfort.com) for allowing me to reprint this great pantry meal recipe!  I’ve done just a couple of things differently since you saw it in my introductory videos.  Firstly, thanks to a great idea from a reader I’ve switched to using shortening powder rather than shortening.  It works perfectly and simplifies  the bagging process and meal prep time!  Secondly, because I’ve had problems with the baking powder hardening while it’s stored I’m now storing the flour mix in vacuum sealed bags.
