Aunt Bonnie shared this recipe with me for my bridal shower, and it is delicious! I had some shredded mild cheddar cheese, so I substituted it in for the mozzarella and it was still yummy. 🙂 I also had some parsley that I needed to use up, so I sprinkled that on top.
This recipe was given to me at my bridal shower by my cousin, Jenn. It’s delicious, and it came with this sweet note from her, which is fitting, since I call Chris my “Adventure Buddy”:
“Congratulations on finding an amazing partner to share life’s adventure!”

There’s a bit of a story behind this recipe. In high school, when I played ice hockey, we would have pasta parties the night before each game. I forgot to mention one of these dinners to my mother until the day of it. She whipped together a bunch of ingredients to make what we now call hockey pasta. That woman has impressive culinary skills, and it was quite a hit.
The second time that I brought it to a pasta party, my coach and his daughter, “number six” (we were all jersey numbers for those four years, even his own daughter, in his own home), drove me home after. I forgot the leftover hockey pasta in their car. When they reached their house and discovered that they were locked out, they sat in the car eating the hockey pasta with their hands until the Mrs. got home. They declared it a delicious lifesaver.
Now we know how to even make the dough!
- 2 tsp yeast
- 1 c warm water
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/8 c sugar
- 2 – 2.5 c flour
- Stir the yeast and water together in a mixing bowl, and let them sit for a few minutes
- Add in the sugar, and let it sit for a few more minutes while the sugar feeds the yeast.
- Add in the oil.
- Mix in the flour and salt.
- Cover with a towel and let it rise for 15-30 minutes. You can put it in the oven on warm to help the process along.
