Today the doorbell is ringing and it is a Pizza Delivery for your doggie! Yep…today we are serving up Pop’s Pizza Treats here at The Cottage Market. These crunch little bones that have been baked with plump chopped sun dried tomatoes…grated cheese….a blend of whole wheat flour…cornmeal and chopped parsley will make your pup sit up and beg…roll-over and give tons of wags and kisses. About 8 years ago…we ran an online bakery for dogs called the Jersey Doggie Diner and these were the best sellers by far and by the way…they are POP’s and Basil approved (our rescue doxie father and son pair : ) These treats are delicious…and healthy! They have the the flavor of pizza without the mess! So next time you make pizza or order your favorite take-out pizza…make a batch of Pop’s Pizza Homemade Dog Treats for your pups or pup…there are some wet sloppy kisses waiting for you if you do!
So does your doggy love a good crunch?
Does you pup sit up and beg while you are eating your yummy slices of pizza?
When a little bit of cheese hits the ground…does you little furry friend scoot over faster than lightning to help you clean the floor?
If you answered yes to any of these…your canine friend needs some Pop’s Pizza Homemade Dog Treats without a shadow of a doubt!
So let’s get to making this tasty treat dough and start rollin!
Pop’s Pizza Homemade Dog Treats (aka: Poppa’s Pizza Poppers)
2 cups of Whole Wheat Flour
2 cups of Unbleached White Flour
1/2 cup of Corn Meal
1 3/4 cups of water – 2 cups of water…if the dough is a little dry…just add a little bit more water : )
3 tablespoons of olive oil or vegetable oil
2 tablespoons of parsley
1 teaspoon of basil
1 cup of grated cheese (Parm, Pecorino or if you like to mix it up…use a cheddar or a blend of cheese…you know…like a four cheese pizza!)
1 cup of chopped sundried tomatoes. (If you are using oil packed…use the oil from the tomatoes instead of olive oil or vegetable oil…a lot of extra flavor )
Time to fire up the over to 375 degrees
Put all of your ingredients in a large bowl…mix well then flour a working space and knead the dough till it well formed (it will be a stiff dough).
Roll out the dough till it is approximately 1/2″ thick and then cut out any size or shape you would like (I have to admit I usually make them in to small squares or little circles since my doggies are smaller…but they looked much prettier in the dog bone shape : ) So whatever size or shape is wonderful!
Once they are all cut out and on a greased baking sheet or placed on parchment they get popped into the over for approximately 50 minutes.
After 40 minutes…I take them out…brush them with oil and sprinkle some extra cheese on top…it’s a little something extra but it does not have to be done : )
Now cool the bones and serve them up to your furry friend! I highly recommend storing what you would use in a weeks time in an air tight container and then pop the rest in the freezer for the later…that way you are assured to have FRESH Homemade Dog Treats any time your pup is craving some Pizza! After a great meal a soft cuddly homemade bed is always a good idea!
Pops and Basil give these Pop’s Pizza Homemade Dog Treats 8 Paws UP!!!
*concentrated garlic, garlic salt, liquid garlic are all toxic to dogs. the small amount of fresh chopped garlic in this recipe does not endanger your dog in any way…it is distributed throughout the entire dough batter which makes 42 2 1/2″ bones …the amounts are miniscule. Large amounts of garlic or any concentrated garlic can endanger your dog …this will not…you can read further on the ASPCA list of foods.
Pops and Basil also HIGHLY recommend these Homemade Dog Treats as gifts to all of your furry friends on the gift giving list…just tie them up …add a Baked with Love tag and make some other doggies HAPPY!
I think your furry friend or friends would love to smell some of these yummy Homemade Dog Treats baking in the oven today…don’t you!
Sending Doxie (((((HUGS))))) to everyone!
