Crock-Pot Kalua Pork

This recipe isn't "authentic" but it's easy, delicious!

1 Pork Shoulder Butt Roast (about 6 pounds)
2 tablespoons Sea Salt
2 tablespoons Liquid Smoke
1/2 cup Beef Stock ( crock pot is older and needs a little liquid in the bottom to get it going)

Put roast and stock into crock pot. Rub salt and liquid smoke into meat. Cover and cook for 10-12 hours on the lowest setting. Shred and remove extra fat. Garnish with chopped green onion and serve with rice.

**If you don't have a crock-pot. You can make this recipe by wrapping the roast in a few layers of tin-foil (prepared the same way with stock, salt, and liquid smoke) then putting it into a roasting pan or cake pan, and baking in the oven at 225 degrees for 10-12 hours.***

The Best Wheat Pizza Crust

My Grandma's recipe uses all white flour, which is delicious. Brian was the one who thought to try it with wheat flour, and it is awesome! Quick and Easy Pizza Crust!

1 tsp. Active Dry Yeast

3/4 cup Warm Water
pinch of sugar
1 tsp. Salt
1/3 cup Oil
1 cup Wheat Flour
1 cup White Flour

Combine yeast, water and sugar. Stir until yeast "melts". Let sit for a minute to activate. Add in oil, flour and salt. Mix until combined. Bake at 350 degrees with desired toppings until crust is golden brown.
